2. Honda Civic HF
Official EPA fuel economy estimates: 29/41/33. Everyone knows the Civic and there are plenty of reasons to love the compact car. It brings with it a sporty personality, and thanks to another refresh the car looks sportier than before. Honda loads quite a few amenities in the HF, which is the fuel economizing non-hybrid version of the car, with standard features like tilt and telescoping adjustment for the steering wheel, cruise control and a rearview camera. Also included are a number of features that help squeeze out the most from every drop of fuel, like low-rolling-resistance tires, underbody panels to increase the vehicle’s aerodynamics and cast aluminum wheels that are also more aerodynamic.
