Cheap and Excellent on Gas
Last week we exposed the cheapest and most fuel minded vehicles on the market. All hybrid vehicles, the list started at the $30,000 mark, with the most affordable being the $19,320 Honda Insight.
If you’re looking for a car that is even more affordable than those hybrids, you’ll have to sacrifice some fuel economy. Here’s a list of cars that net 40 miles per gallon on the highway or better. This segment is quickly growing in popularity, and is soon to be joined by the upcoming 2014 Fiesta with its 1.0-liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which Ford claims will hit at least 40 mpg on the highway.
Dodge has announced its all-new 2013 Dodge Dart Aero as its most fuel-efficient Dart model delivering up to 41-mpg with a starting price of $19,295.
Sales of the new Dodge Dart have been lackluster so far, moving only 974 units in its first two months on the market, and the blame is being placed directly on the manual transmission.
