Best in Show: Fuel Economy

We all like to know what we're getting back in value when we buy a new car. Especially when it helps you save money. And what better way to save money than to get more at the pump. With high gas prices, there is no better way to save than getting the most out of your mileage. Here are our top picks for fuel-efficient cars to get you from A to B without breaking the bank.

Best pickup truck

The Chevrolet Colorado LT Diesel (24 MPG)

Part of GM’s selection of small pickup trucks, the Colorado is more maneuverable than a full-size truck and better equipped than its competitors.


Best SUV

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid XLE (31 MPG)

The RAV4 has consistently been ranked for years as a high-quality SUV. Updates for 2016, a quieter cabin, smoother ride, and a long line of advanced safety features.


Best Compact Car

 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid SE (37 MPG)

The Jetta is slightly bigger than most compact sedans of its type, giving it more room and comfort for drivers. A refined 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder has been added to the feature list for 2016.


Best Sports Car

 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club (34 MPG)

The fourth-generation Miata is lighter and shorter than the original while remaining true to the formula. This car features quick and precise steering, a highly accurate six-speed manual shift, and a breezy convertible top.

Best Hatchback

Toyota Prius V Three (41 MPG)

This Prius model has a large, roomy rear seating and generous cargo space. It makes for a comfortable and smooth ride, with the new feature of a 4.1-inch dash-top screen for trip computer functions.
