How efficient a particular car is with its fuel consumption and how much mileage it gets per liter of gas is something everyone considers before they put down the down payment for a new car. After all, nobody wants to buy a car they can’t afford to drive, especially not people who have to drive every day. Consequently, car manufacturers have been trying forever to further increase the mileage their cars get in order to entice new buyers.
Today the automotive market is absolutely exploding with variety, choice, and alternatives. As such, the automobile industry has perhaps never been more competitive about releasing a car that consumes as fewer amounts of gas as possible. The recent push for green solutions to everything in order to save our planet has also helped further fuel this race between car manufacturers. If you were to consider buying a car nowadays, you would have plenty of solid options to choose from. So, let’s list some of the best choices from those options below.
The Toyota Prius
Like our list on the best hybrid cars in the world, it just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t start this list off with listing the Toyota Prius. The Toyota Prius revolutionized fuel-efficiency in vehicles as well as hybrid car architecture in general. Reliable, comfortable, and cheap as anything to keep fueled, the Toyota Prius is one of the first choices that comes to mind when considering fuel-efficient cars. Suffice to say, if high mileage rates are what you’re after, the Toyota Prius and its staggering 100 km per one liter of gas mileage promise has you covered.
The Honda Insight
The Honda Insight is another hybrid car that actually very slightly beats the Toyota Prius when it comes to fuel efficiency. Honda has also revamped recent models after its design of the newer Honda Civic models, giving new Honda Insight cars a very sporty look that might be what convinces you to settle for this car. It is also quite a nice car to drive, and has a very pretty interior which makes it a very pleasant car to spend longs hours in every day. So, if sporty looks and fuel efficiency were your two major priorities, you have a clear winner here.
The Hyundai Ioniq
If for some reason you wanted to go for a car that looked like a Toyota Prius, acted like a Toyota Prius, and cost around the same price as a Toyota Prius, but wasn’t actually a Toyota Prius, then Hyundai has an answer for you in the shape of its car; the Hyundai Ioniq. The Hyundai Ioniq resembles the Toyota Prius in more than just its looks; it set out to compete with the Prius directly. And compete it did; the Hyundai Ioniq is a solid choice for people who want a reliable car that is also easy on the wallet by way of less fuel consumption.
The Toyota Corolla
The Toyota Corolla has been a favorite amongst many for decades. It has undergone so many changes, both visually as well as performance wise, and yet the core features that have always made it stand out remain in place; style, reliability, and power in a very affordable package. And the situation today isn’t any different. Though the normal Toyota Corolla’s mileage isn’t bad, the Toyota Corolla Hybrid shines in that it is more affordable than any of the cars listed prior and still manages to deliver a very impressive mileage rate. It also doesn’t hurt that the Corolla also boasts good interiors and a decent list of safety that come installed in it.
The Lexus ES Hybrid
One of the more luxurious cars on the list – with a heftier but still manageable price tag – the Lexus ES Hybrid is a gorgeous vehicle inside and out. The interiors are beautiful and sleek, and the exterior is sure to turn heads with its unique and powerful look. But of course, it wouldn’t be on this list if it wasn’t efficient with its fuel. Safe to say, you can rest easy. It has a very decent mileage rate and will be lighter on your wallet.
The Toyota Camry Hybrid
The Toyota Camry has been around since forever, and its foray into the hybrid world has produced a very successful car indeed. The Toyota Camry Hybrid is extremely fuel-efficient, almost matching the Toyota Prius, the Honda Insight, and the Hyundai Ioniq. The interiors are decent, the exterior looks good, and there is plenty of space inside the car. Driving also feels good, though the braking could do with a little more work. But for the price, this is definitely a car with few equally matched contenders.
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is one of the better hybrid offerings on the market. Its slew of safety features coupled with the roomy interior alone would have made it a strong contender. However, it also manages to pump out one of the most impressive mileage rates on the market, while also looking like a much more expensive car both inside and out. And it manages to provide all these amazing pros at a very competitive price, placing it barely any higher than the Toyota Prius when it comes to cost.
The Honda Accord Hybrid
The Honda Accord is another car that seems to have been around forever, and so its jump into the booming hybrid market makes a lot of sense. Fortunately for it, it made for a very compelling hybrid car. For starters, it just looks nice. A department that the Honda Accord has never struggled with. But that’s not all; it’s powerful, providing drivers with a very fun driving experience. It also steers like a dream, and brakes exceptionally well. And keeping in tradition with Accord standards, the interiors have satisfactory finishing and are also decently roomy. And lastly, of course, it delivers a very respectable mileage, making it a solid choice for the discerning buyer.
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid
The Toyota Avalon is known for being a family car, and its hybrid version does the job quite nicely without sacrificing anything. The interior of the car is very nice and very roomy to accommodate passengers as comfortably as possible. And the car is also quite nice to drive, though it doesn’t pack quite the same punch as some other offerings. But the mileage it provides more than makes up for any slightly lackluster driving, and make it an excellent option for people who want a fuel-efficient but also spacious vehicle.
The list above features some of the most fuel-efficient cars on the market today, but of course, doesn’t list every single option. Though we’re confident you should have found the car you’re looking for above, there is nevertheless a plethora of choice available should you continue to look further.
