Top Gas-Saving 2016 Hatchbacks, Coupes and SUV’s


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!

While these cars aren’t considered the most practical cars, coupes have a beautiful two doors design, sporty features and comfortable seating. It’s the perfect car for anyone who wants the handling of a sports car with a touch of space. These cars are surprisingly spacious considering the two door option, here are a few coupes that are fuel-efficient.

Minivans and vans are one of the most popular option for a growing family, of course it provides space for multiple people, it also provides great comfort, space and smooth rides. The sliding door concept helps when another vehicle is parked very closely to get in and out without breaking a sweat. I know back in the day purchasing a van wouldn’t be the “cool” car to own, not anymore, take a look at these 2016 designs, they sure will surprise you!

Always great service

In my opinion Peter deserves more than 5 stars. I’m his customer for 16 years now and every and each time I go there, he impresses me in different positive ways. He has patience to listen and explain everything to his customers and he treats people with lots of kindness and respect. I was asking myself many times how can he be so kind to everyone when others are not ? Simple: kindness is the word to describe Peter. Beside that, he is honest, very well trained and skilled in what he is doing. I wish all the business men to be the same as he is!

Mercedes Power Steering Pump Leak

Have never wanted to leave feed back for any business until I dealt with Peter!! When you have what’s viewed as a prestige car, Mercedes, most garages wont touch it, or will take advantage., gouge you financially. Peter is a straight forward, honest guy to deal with, that will answer everything you ask. The way it should be. All praise
