What Car Gets the Best Gas Mileage? – Non-Hybrid Edition

Pumping Gas

Everyone knows that driving hybrid and electric vehicles mean fewer trips to Plymouth gas stations, but they’re also more expensive than conventional gas-powered cars. So, when it comes to gas-powered automobiles, what car gets the best gas mileage? Non-hybrid cars can sometimes get great gas mileage, and we’ve put together a list of those cars below. As expected, there is a Toyota and a Honda on the list, but you may be surprised to also see a Ford model, a Chevy model, and a Kia model on the list as well.



What Car Gets the Best Gas Mileage That’s a Non-Hybrid?

Non-hybrid cars can be capable of impressive fuel efficiency, some getting over 40 miles per gallon. So, what car gets the best gas mileage in the non-hybrid category? Here are some cars that would surely make for an economical Minneapolis commute:

Ford Fiesta SFE – 36-combined/31-city/43-highway

The Fiesta SFE is also known as the Fiesta SE EcoBoost Fuel Economy Package. The most fuel-efficient version features a 1.0L turbocharged three-cylinder engine producing 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque.

Honda Civic HF – 35-combined /31-city/41-highway

Honda vehicles are known for their fuel efficiency and longevity. For the best gas mileage, get a Honda Civic with the 180-hp turbocharged 1.5L inline-four engine and a CVT.

Chevrolet Spark – 33-combined/30-city/38-highway

The Spark gets such good mileage that later models have a gas tank that only holds nine gallons and yet has a range of around 300 miles. Its engine is not exactly a powerhouse, generating only 98 hp, but the Spark makes for some pretty inexpensive Maple Grove road trips.

Toyota Corolla – 35-combined/32-city/41-highway

Of course, the Toyota Corolla makes this list. Its reputation for consistent fuel efficiency is legendary. Generally, you’ll get the best gas mileage out of the hatchback version.

Kia Rio – 36-combined/33-city/41-highway

The 1.6L engine in the Kia Rio is paired with a CVT and generates 120 hp. It’s a sporty little number that can go over 400 miles on a single tank of gas.
