By on May 13, 2014

Large-Size Car: Ford C-MAX Hybrid

The Ford C-MAX Hybrid, aside from performing phenomenally in the area of fuel economy, is even better for the environment than the nature-friendly Ford Fiesta SFE FWD.

At just 209 grams of greenhouse gas emissions per mile, the C-MAX receives the highest rating of 10/10 for tailpipe CO2.

It’s also a very affordable car, available for $25,000-$28,000.

Small Station Wagon: BMW 328d xDrive Sports Wagon

The all-wheel drive, 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder 328d xDrive from BMW gets its high marks due to its compatibility with diesel fuel.

More efficient than gasoline, diesel allows this small wagon to offer a combined 35 MPG, which is definitely great for its class.

BMW is a company famous for luxury, but they’re also trying (and trying very successfully) to make an impact in the world of fuel efficiency.

Mid-Size Station Wagon: Toyota Prius v

And for a third time, the Toyota Prius makes its way onto the list of most fuel efficient cars of 2014.

The Prius v is a four-door station wagon built with 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine that won’t win you any street races, but offers plenty of get-up-and-go for your commute.

Electric Car: Chevrolet Spark EV

  • Highway – 109
  • Combined – 119

The world of electric cars is getting bigger and bigger, each and every day.

The Chevrolet Spark EV is just one example of many electric vehicles that are offering powerful and efficient alternatives to cars running on fuel. It features an incredible combined MPG of 119, which does indeed take electricity into account. The number is figured by equating one gallon of gas to 33.7 kilowatt-hours.

It’s a good looking little car, too, absolutely tailor-made for city-dwellers.
