Best Gas Mileage Cars – 2008

Top 12 – Most Fuel Efficient Vehicles of 2008


The Toyota Prius and Honda Civic Hybrid continued their domination of the chart in 2008, with the continued absence of the Volkwagen Jetta TDI, Beetle TDI, and Golf TDI. There was a bit of shuffle in the listings, with the Mini Cooper slipping out of the top 12, and the entry of the Scion XD and Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe.

The chart of 2008’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):
