The 5 Best 40 MPG Cars for 2012
2012 Cars that get a Combined Fuel Economy Rating of 40 MPG or Better
Cars that get 40 MPG Combined
There are many cars that get 40 MPG on the Highway or in the City. But there are only 5 cars that have a combined fuel economy rating of 40 MPG or more. And you guessed it; they are all hybrids. While the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt get MPG ratings in the 90 miles per gallon range, the fuel economy of these cars is based on an estimated value since they run on electricity. Only cars that have a gasoline power plant as their main mode of propulsion were included. Just a few years ago eclipsing the 40 MPG marker was something extraordinary. Now with the advancement of technology, many cars can reach this lofty goal. And in some cases an efficient engine, transmission, and vehicle body shape are enough to get a car to break the 40 MPG barrier.
