Best Small Compact Car MGP
If you're looking to buy a compact car, but want to get the most out of your mileage, take a moment to view our small car lineup below and the miles per gallon each one is capable of on the the highway and city - we've compared the Chevy Cruze to the competition
#1 Chevy Cruze
One of the best new small cars of 2016 is the Chevy Cruze. The car is one of the roomiest in its class, and the ride is smooth and quiet. Chevy took the best features of both the Malibu and Impala and put them into a smaller, more compact package. The Cruze is more fuel-efficient than other Chevy models and has plenty of power. The Chevy Cruze’s gas mileage is impressive as it gets 42 miles per gallon on the highway and 30 in the city.
It offers you a smooth, sporty ride, and is definitely one of the best buys for the money – starting as low as $16,000.
The new Cruze model is extremely advanced in technology, and the infotainment system is very user-friendly. It comes standard with Apple CarPlay and is also compatible with Android phones.
#2 Honda Civic LX
The Honda Civic LX’s fuel efficiency is similar to the Chevy Cruze’s. The Civic LX gets 31 miles per gallon in the city and 41 on the highway. However, there are some downsides to the Civic
. It costs about $2,000 more than the Cruze and it’s harder to get in and out of, especially for your back seat passengers. Both the Cruze and the Civic have updated infotainment systems, but the Civic’s is not very user-friendly.
#3 Hyundai Accent GLS Sedan
This Hyundai Accent
has been one of the country’s best sellers since it was first introduced to the market. The 2016 model has lots of room for your gear and passengers. The Accent has a powerful engine and starts at just over $15,000. However, it has one of the worst fuel economies in its class. The Accent gets just 25 miles per gallon in the city and 35 on the highway and this equals less bang for your buck.
#4 Ford Focus SE 2.0
Another one of the small cars in the class is the Ford Focus. It starts at just over $18,000, so it is more expensive than the Cruze. It doesn’t handle as well as the Cruze and it’s not quite as sporty either. Its fuel economy is comparable to the Cruze, though, with 30 miles per gallon in town and 41 on the highway. The 2016 Focus has its fair share of negative reviews
#5 Nissan Sentra SE
The Nissan Sentra SE is a top safety pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, the Sentra has a weak 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine, so acceleration is poor. The gas mileage isn’t great
, either. It gets 27 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway.
