With the globe heading towards usage of green energy, the demand for anything that does not consume non-renewable resources is going up. The same trend is being observed in the automobile industry as people are tilting their choices towards electric and solar cars. These electric cars are not only environment-friendly but they also prove to be very economical with their performance. However, there are still some traditional fuel cars which are going strong in the market, both for their performance and efficiency.
If one looks outside the electric car segment, Toyota Prius is a good choice when it comes to an optimal combination of styling and economy. The Prius is the most fuel-efficient car in its segment and therefore has a huge demand in the market. The car comes with a 1.8 liter, four-cylinder engine, and gives an average of 50 miles per gallon. It is a perfect commuter car that is capable of covering several miles a day.
Lexus CT 200h
Lexus is a response to car lovers, who often wonder why they cannot have luxury and efficiency in one package. Lexus is a premium car and gives approximately 42 miles per gallon. The car has a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine and serves as a great option for buyers, who would prefer to save some gas with their premium cars if given an option.
33 miles per gallon is the best one can expect from a gas-powered sedan or coupe, and one of the cars that deliver on that point is the Ford Fiesta. The Fiesta is a popular car in Asia, and it is one among the affordable sedans. If a person has primary concerns about the cost of the car and has fuel-efficiency issues coming next on his list, then he must go for this Fiesta model.
The Hyundai Elantra is a good choice if a buyer is looking for fuel economy and value. The engine capacities of the Elantra are similar to the Prius and Lexus and it gives 29 miles per gallon. The car has a package of features but has many cars competing for its market position.
Ford Focus, Volkswagen Jetta, Nissan Juke, Ford Escape, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Mazda 2, Kia Forte, Nissan Sentra, and 2012 Fiat 500 are some of the other cars that were known for their efficiency and performance during 2011-2012. With auto shows happening in different parts of the world, one can expect new entrants into the fuel-efficient car market in the foreseeable future.
