Most Fuel-Efficient Cars
In the relentless quest for greater fuel efficiency, today’s vehicles benefit from the latest technological advances, but they are also subject to more stringent emissions regulations and new safety requirements compared to older models. The United States Environmental Protection Agency changed the way it estimates fuel economy beginning with the 2008 model year, considering faster acceleration, higher speeds, air-conditioner use and colder outside temperatures. Although the new system resulted in lower EPA mileage ratings for most vehicles, the new tests are a better estimate of what drivers can expect to achieve in real-world driving.
