Starting off strong, the Toyota Corolla is one of the world’s best-selling vehicles and delivers combined consumption at 7.5L/100km in the CE, SE and LE trims. The Corolla LE ECO CVT is, even more fuel-efficient, achieving 6.9L/100km. Known for its reliability and fitted with more standard equipment than ever, the Corolla is a smart, sustainable choice, brimming with value.
The Elantra offers distinctive styling and a host of standard features, including a 147-horsepower 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, turning the front wheels through a CVT. The fuel economy ranges from 7.1 L/100 km to 7.8 L/100 km in the city and 5.6 L/100 km to 5.9 L/100 km on the highway. For a sharp-looking sedan that starts just north of $20,000, the Elantra is an attractive choice, inside and out.
With a fuel economy of 4.5 L per 100km combined, this Corolla is among the best against its gasoline-only competitors. The smartly styled Toyota Corolla Hatchback, with an automatic CVT, starts at $25,804.20 That price gets you a 2.0-litre, naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine, making 168 horsepower, standard-issue aluminum wheels and Toyota Safety Sense 3.0, among other things.
Honda estimates the Accord's fuel consumption at 7.8/6.5 L/100 km (city/highway) with the 1.5L engine and CVT and 10.4/7.4 L/100 km in 2.0L/10AT models. The base Honda Accord comes with a 192-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and a CVT. It’s not the cheapest car on this list, but it’s spacious, has an EPA-estimated range of 488 miles on a single tank of gas, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named it a Top Safety Pick+.
If you’re looking for something sleek and economical, the Toyota Venza is great for turning heads on your daily commute. The gas engine helps with getting up to highway speeds without any trouble. The EPA-rated expected fuel economy is 5.9 L/100 km in city driving and 6.3 L/100 km on the highway. Overall, the 2022 Toyota Venza might be one of the smoothest SUVs on the market.
The Nissan Sentra proves that affordable and fuel-efficient cars in Canada don’t have to look less appealing than their more-expensive competition. You will spend less time at the fuel pump with the incredible fuel efficiency of 9.2 L/100 km in the city, 6.2 L/100 km on the highway, and 7.9 L/100 km combined. It’s powered by a 149-hp 2.0-litre inline-four and continuously variable transmission (CVT). Plus, when gas prices soar, the Sentra’s small 12.4-gallon fuel tank can make filling up less heartbreaking than larger cars with 17-gallon tanks.
Toyota’s fuel efficiency champions come from the Prius model range—with the popular Prius, compact Prius c, and larger Prius v offers combined fuel economy ratings of 4.5L/100km, 5.1L/100km and 5.8L/100km, respectively. With available electronic all-wheel drive up to 43 mph, updated tech, and all the media hookups you need, it takes your commute to the next level, no questions asked.
The latest addition to the Prius lineup takes things even further. A plug-in hybrid, the Prius Prime has greater battery capacity giving it an EV mode range of 40km. When not in EV mode, the Prius Prime achieves a combined city/highway fuel efficiency rating of 4.3l/100 km.
This fuel-efficient car is more than just a gas saver. The Toyota Camry provides a thrilling ride with Sport mode, an available moonroof, and the media app options you might want. On top of its sleek design, the redesigned Camry Hybrid enjoys combined city/highway fuel economy from 4.9L/100km with the Camry LE Hybrid. Impossibly beautiful and remarkably efficient.
