5. 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid
Another luxury entry on the list is the 2014 Lincoln MKZ hybrid, which gets 45 MPG across the board (city, highway, combined). Under the hood is the American automaker’s 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder hybrid powertrain that provides 141 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels. But the MKZ hybrid’s starting price of $36,085 makes it one of the more expensive cars on the list – second only to the Lexus ES 300h.
Like the MKZ but not interested in a hybrid? The standard 2014 Lincoln MKZ gets 22 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.
