Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Hatchbacks Under $25K

5. Scion iQ - 37 MPG Combined

The funky Scion iQ hasn’t been the hot-seller the brand hoped it would be, but it’s still one of the most fuel efficient hatchbacks available on today’s market at a reasonable price. Those looking for a different style will be drawn to the iQ’s design while the 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine is on par with others in the segment. With 94 hp and 89 lb-ft of torque, the iQ is pretty average among its competitors but impresses in the fuel economy department with a 36 mpg city, 37 mpg highway rating. Of course there’s also the $16,250 price tag that is also average for the segment, although this is the first car on the list that doesn’t require its driver to govern gear shifts.

    I like that the honda insight is on the list, even though im not a huge fan. I would replace it with the crz, which is NOT being phased out like the Insight. Granted the crz doesnt quite get the combined rating of the insight, but its close. So is the pricing, and its the ONLY hybrid available with a stick. Its the enthusiast’s hybrid hatchback of choice, albeit without a backseat.

    I thought the CR-Z was being axed too?

  • John

    Nope just the insight in the US, but in Europe, the CRZ is getting taken off the market too.

    Wondering how the excellent SkyActiv Mazda 3 Hatch didn’t make the list. Well under the price cap and offers better MPG than the Yaris as well as more space and equipment.

    Very strange not including the destination charge. It’s not like it’s an option. You could also have not included the cost of wheels, but similarly, you can’t buy a car without wheels. You found a way to wedge the Prius into the list, but I find it takes away from the premise of your article.

    You forgot all the plug-ins. iMiev, Spark EV, Smart ED, Nissan Leaf. Some of these are below $25K before tax incentives and all of them are after.

    I really love the way the Prius c looks!

  • Ugly

    Yes, but drive one first to see if you like it. You may find it a bit noisy, slow and the ride uncomfortable…

  • Marco

    You have the mpg for the Prius C mixed up.
