Best Used Car Brands for Fuel Economy

In our search for used cars that have the best miles per gallon (mpg), it’s clear that some brands have mastered this aspect. Assessing mpg in used cars involves considering a variety of factors. Luxury car makers usually don’t achieve the same high mpg as mainstream brands. Acura however is an exception for luxury brands, offering an average of 25 mpg due to its sophisticated valve control system. Among non-luxury brands, Mazda stands out, with many models achieving over 40 mpg. Toyota is another top contender in the used car market, offering not only hybrids but consistently improving mpg across all its models.

Among the plethora of high-mpg used cars in Colorado Springs, the Toyota Prius takes the lead. This hybrid model is a game-changer, providing exceptional fuel economy.
