Small cars and compacts
It’s business as usual above, where Toyota Prius C 2014 is in power. It tops the list with a combined economy of 50 mpg, and an impressive 53 mpg city rating.
Next is a relatively new participant, the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid. With the 1.4-liter VW turbocharged engine promises a lot of fun, but the Jetta diesel-anating 45 mpg is also there for taking. Its closest rival in size, the Honda Civic Hybrid 2014, suitable for a combined economy, beat it in the city (44 mpg versus 42 mpg) and lags 1 mpg on the highway (47 mpg to 48 mpg).
Further down you will find the classy CT 200 from Lexus. It’s basically a Prius underneath, and although it manages a combined 42 mpg lower, it has an extra prestige that some buyers might look for. It also has a much higher starting price tag, at $ 32,050.
Honda Insight 2014 has no prestige to its name, but it manages the same 42 mpg (41 mpg city, 44 mpg highway). If you want it for any reason you have to act fast, because it’s not long for this world.
Insights may be on the cutting block but Honda’s sporty CR-Z has gotten the execution delay. It returns 37 mpg combined with a continuously-variable transmission, or 34 combined with a six-speed manual – the only manual hybrid on the market.
It’s not the most efficient hybrid on the market but it’s very enthusiastic to drive – and the introduction of a supercharger kit recently made it even more fun.
