Getting “mileage” out of a purchase can mean more than saving gas. There’s cargo capacity, seat space and price to take into account on top of hunting for high miles per gallon.
You might be surprised by how many new cars there are in dealer showrooms today that offer all of those attributes without compromising much in any category. With that in mind, here are 10 family-friendly options that can achieve at least 40 mpg.

Mazda is the only company with a vehicle this size that isn’t using a hybrid system and is boasting up to 40 mpg. That’s impressive for such a small company. In AutoGuide’s recent mid-size sedan comparison, the car returned impressive fuel economy, too. It wasn’t the claimed 40 mpg, but our car wasn’t equipped with the mildly mpg-boosting i-Eloop system and it still managed to return the second-best fuel economy.
Fuel efficiency is at the forefront of every new car-buyer’s mind. No one wants to spend $30,000 and find themselves throwing money away at the gas pump, so we’ve compiled a list of the cheapest vehicles that get 40 miles per gallon (combined) in order from most expensive to least expensive.
