3. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid
The 2014 Honda Civic sedan model is refreshed for the 2014 model year. With a 1.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid powertrain, the Civic sedan gets 110 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, the second weakest on the list to the Prius v. It does provide 44 MPG in the city and 47 MPG on the highway, which is good for a 45-MPG combined rating. And with a starting price tag of $25,425 the Honda Civic hybrid is a compelling option for safety and fuel economy.
