Best MPG Cars 2014
With the instability of rising gas prices each year, its important to have a car that you can rely on to get great gas millage for years to come. Luckily, more and more cars are available that are sure to not only keep you on the road, but also do so without needing to fill up at the tank every few days. Here is a look at the some of the best 2014 fuel-efficient cars that get the best MPG.
The Mazda3 has always been known for getting great gas millage with its models. This will be no different in 2014, as the Mazda3 is expected to get up to 29 MPG in the city and nearly 41 MPG on the highway. These numbers are among the best rated by the EPA for 2014 car models. And as you’d expect to get with the Maxda3, it’s a great looking ride that will be certain to both look good and run well.
Dodge Dart Aero
The Dodge Dart is a great car for those that are looking to fully customize their vehicle, and do so with a reasonable price tag. The Dart has one of the most efficient prices for small cars and its gets even better knowing you won’t have to fill up very often, considering you’ll get 28/39 MPG in city/highway. The Dart is a great car, especially for those that are getting their first vehicle and are looking to spruce it up with options and still save money once they hit the road.
The Nissan Sentra is a powerful 130-horespower compact car that is priced just below $20,000. It also has some quite nifty technological controls on the inside, including a Bluetooth and USB port and Bose Audio system, making the Sentra a powerful and entertaining car. Best yet, the Sentra gets 30 and 39 MPG in the city and on the highway respectively.
The next few cars that will be mentioned will take a look at their hybrid models, which are both great on gas millage and also more friendly on the environment. The first Hybrid to consider for a new vehicle is the Honda Civic. Honda is one of the top car manufacturers in the world, and this continues to be true with the new Civic model. It is one of the most affordable cars for what it offers; and at roughly $25,000, the Civic is expected to get above 44 MPG, both in the city and on the highway. Aside from great price and great gas millage, the Honda Civic also gets a superb safety rating, adding ease to those that are driving their first hybrid vehicle.
2013 was the first year that Acura released what is considered as the upscale twin of the Honda Civic, with the Acura ILX. 2014 will see the second year of the ILX and it is offered in a hybrid version, which is expected to surpass 40MPG in both the city and on the highway, much like the less expensive Civic. However, for the extra expense, the Acura offers many additional features, including a rear camera, enhanced audio system, and NVH tuning (for noise, vibration and harshness) which makes for a smoother ride. Overall, if you are looking for a quality car like the Honda Civic, but a more upscale version, the Acura ILX is a perfect option.
Aside from all of the cars on this list, there will come times that some people will just simply need a truck for work or because they enjoy the feel of a truck on the road. With that in mind, the 2014 Chevy Silverado is a great option for those looking for fuel efficiency but the power of a truck. The Silverado is expected to get upwards of 19 MPG and potentially surpass 20MPG, which would be a first for a large pickup.
The Ford F-150 is another truck and it gets upwards of 18 MPG. Ford models also offer EcoBoost, which is intended to help with gas mileage and productivity when driving.
Whether you are looking for a commuter car that you can use every day to drive, or a truck that helps you finish up the tasks that need more space, you can find vehicles that are accommodating to rising gas prices. While you cannot control gas prices, you can control the type of car that you have and how prepared you are for increasing prices on gas. Any of the options on this list will give you the opportunity to stay on the road, without filling up as often.
