Best Gas Mileage Cars – 2009

Top 12 – Most Fuel Efficient Vehicles of 2009


Although the Toyota Prius and Honda Civic Hybrid held their top spots, 2009 brought a wave of fuel-efficient cars. With the return of the Volkswagen Jetta TDI and launch of the Jetta Sportwagen TDI, the two year drought of affordable diesels came to an end. There was a flurry of new entries from General Motors, as they rolled out XFE Extra Fuel Efficiency versions of the Pontiac G5 and Chevrolet Cobalt, along with the Saturn Aura Hybrid and Chevy Malibu Hybrid.

The chart of 2009′s best gas mileage cars can be sorted by manufacturer, model, engine (number of cylinders), displacement (in liters), fuel, transmission, and mileage (city and highway):
