Top 10 Fuel Efficient Cars

Fuel Efficient Coupes/Hatchbacks: Think Green. Save Green.

These coupes/hatchbacks might be on the smaller side when it comes to size, but they come with big savings at the pump. Ranging from sporty and fun, to economical, and even luxurious, these cars take advantage of their lower size and weight to squeeze out every last mpg and help to keep money in your wallet instead of your gas tank. Two members of the Prius family can be found on this list, as well as the only luxury car to get over 40 mpg in both city and highway driving, the Lexus CT 200h.

Vehicles are ranked by city MPG, followed by highway MPG and MSRP.

Annual fuel-cost estimates are calculated based on the price per gallon that you input, and the assumptions that you travel 15,000 miles per year (55 percent city, 45 percent highway).

All miles-per-gallon (mpg) figures are from the 2010/2011 Fuel Economy Guide, which is published by the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy. Fuel Economy Guide data is derived from vehicle testing done at the EPA's National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Mich., and by vehicle manufacturers that submit their own test data to the EPA. All vehicles are tested in the same way so you can compare the results when choosing a vehicle type or class. The mpg ratings appear on window stickers on all new cars and light trucks prior to sale.
