Affordable Fuel Efficient Cars

Fuel economy is on everyone’s mind these days because of the ugly state of the economy and the rising (and rising, and rising) cost of gas.  There are plenty of cars on the road that offer excellent gas mileage to be sure but the fact is that many of them are also quite expensive to purchase.

Which begs the question; which cars are not only great on gas and have excellent mileage but also are affordable to begin with?  I mean there’s no sense worrying about buying a gas sipping car if the monthly payments are going to break the bank, am I right?

With that in mind here are the Top 10 Cars that not only have great MPG but also have a sticker price that won’t send your checkbook running for cover. They have the fuel efficiency people want and all the great features they are looking for too.

  1. Hyundai Accent – Under $12,500 and 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway with a 6 speed manual transmission the Accent is the best of the bunch.
  2. Kia Rio – Affordable to purchase and run the Rio gets 30 mpg combined with an automatic transmission.
  3. Smart Fortwo Coupe – Tiny size and tiny price, the Fortwo gets 41 mpg highway and 36 mpg city. Just don’t try to bring a lot of luggage.
  4. Toyota Yaris – Toyota reliability, under $14 grand and 31 mpg combined put the Yaris near the top of the list.
  5. Ford Fiesta – An affordable compact with great styling and 33 mpg with the automatic transmission make the Fiesta a great buy and great at the pump.
  6. Hyundai Elantra – Still affordable even though larger than the Accent and 33 mpg combined the Elantra is affordable and roomy.
  7. Kia Forte – 34 mpg highway with a sporty look and feel and a great price tag the Forte is an excellent buy.
