Looking for a fuel-efficient car depends on your lifestyle and essential needs, maybe your priority right now is having more space for long trips, or maybe it’s more important to you to purchase a small compact car to drive around town! To make it easier on your research, we’ll be looking at four different car categories that are fuel-efficient: hatchbacks, coupes, suv’s, minivans and vans. Official fuel economy figures can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
Best 2016 Hatchbacks for fuel-economy:
Hatchbacks are a very popular option! Many urban families or young professionals are attracted to hatchbacks due to their compact look. Even if this vehicle appears small compared to a SUV or Van, most hatchbacks provide plenty of space to sit a family comfortably. Not only that, it’s smooth ride and sporty handling is appealing to many, especially since various car brands are coming out with electric hatchbacks! Here are a few of our favourites hatchbacks that are great on savings!
