The Best Fuel Efficient Cars to Lease

by James Robles

A variety of fuel-efficient automobiles are available to lease. Choosing which option is best can be a challenge and is dependent on preference and intended use. The most efficient cars blend a high city and highway mileage rate, while offering reliability at cost. The majority of these vehicles are sedans, utilizing lighter weights to achieve optimal gas mileage. These options deliver a variety of comfortable packages and warranty options.

Honda Insight

The Honda Insight operates under the Eco Assist System, an efficient feature enabling better fuel economy. Costing less then the Toyota Prius, the Honda Insight achieves 40 mpg highway and 43 highway, making it a leader among fuel-efficient automobiles. A 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine is far from powerful, but delivers the economic motoring desired of budget-minded drivers. The Honda Insight is available in three different options, each delivering a variety of features at inexpensive rates.

Honda Civic Hybrid

The Honda Civic Hybrid achieves 45 mpg highway and 40 city, making it a leader among fuel-efficient car choices. Honda's IMA (Integrated Motor System) propels this hybrid to greater distances with fewer fill-ups. The small four-cylinder, 110-horsepower engine helps keep gas costs down. Available in one model, the Honda Civic Hybrid is competitively priced, yet more expensive than the Honda Insight.

Volkswagon Golf TDI

The Volkswagon Golf TDI delivers 27 miles per gallon city and 42 highway. The TDI operates on a clean burning diesel engine, giving it an increase in highway mileage above other competitors. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder coup is available with a number of features. Although the Golf is available as a four-door model, the two-door offers the most efficient gas mileage due to its lighter weight. This coup is competitively priced to compete with many of the other fuel-efficient cars.
