Fuel Efficiency, American Style

2015 Chevrolet Spark
34 mpg
Price: Starting at $12,270
General Motors has come a long way with regard to small, fuel-efficient cars. Earlier attempts in this market were less than successful, but the Spark is just the right mix of style and fun with great fuel economy to boot. In fact, Spark has helped Chevrolet grow its share of the small-, compact- and mini-car segments by more than 200 percent in the last five years. Spark is also safer than you’d expect for such a small car — it has 10 airbags and was an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick last year. Chevrolet’s most fuel-efficient non-plug-in offering, the Spark features a 1.2-liter 84-horsepower engine that can achieve 39 mpg on the highway.

  1. You think 550-mile range would be bladder-busting? How about 60 miles for this old lady?
    Those were a nice range of vehicles, price-wise and size-wise. The smallest were the neatest looking.
