The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid takes everything that we thought we knew about the Accord and somehow manages to make it even more amazing. Pricing stays affordable at $29,605 MSRP for the base model,* but fuel-efficiency takes an incredible leap. All Accord Hybrid models are equipped with an Earth Dreams Technology Hybrid setup, which includes the industry’s first-ever two-motor hybrid system. One motor is focused on acceleration while the other works on starting the engine and charging the first motor. When you pull everything together, the hybrid powertrain is able to dole out 143 net hp, 129 net lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated 47 mpg on the highway and 49 mpg in the city.***

Some of the other features that are sure to keep you and your passengers happy when within the Accord Hybrid’s cabin include a dual-zone automatic climate control system, Honda Sensing, 10-way power driver’s seat, leather-trimmed seating, heated seats, front and rear parking sensors, and Honda LaneWatch.

Even U.S. News had a mouthful to say about everything that the Accord Hybrid can offer. In their opinion, “The Honda Accord Hybrid is one of the best hybrids on the market. First and foremost, its fuel economy estimates are among the best of all hybrids. In addition, the Accord Hybrid has a well-appointed cabin, a smooth ride, and outstanding crash test scores and reliability ratings. There is very little not to like about this car.”

The final vehicle in our lineup of fuel-efficient cars is the 2017 Honda Fit. With such a small stature and price tag, it’s not surprising that this vehicle would easily make this list. The engine found on all three of the Fit trim levels is one that we’ve run into before, the 1.5L direct injection engine. Its appearance on the Fit when paired with a CVT sets the vehicle up to receive a great 130 hp, 114 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated 33 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.**

Though it may have a smaller exterior appearance, the Honda Fit is full of great extras that drivers and their passengers will love, such as a multi-angle rearview camera, one-touch power moonroof, Honda LaneWatch, leather-trimmed and heated seats, and a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen.

Edmunds feels almost as strongly as we do about the Honda Fit, which can be seen when they describe the Fit by saying how it rules its segment: “With impressive fuel economy, loads of passenger room and unmatched cargo versatility, the Fit made subcompact cars a mainstream consideration. Today’s Fit continues to offer those winning traits while adding cutting-edge technology and creature comforts such as leather upholstery and keyless ignition.”
