The Mitsubishi Mirage is the highest MPG new car you can buy in the US that’s not a hybrid. It’s also affordable, well-built, reasonably equipped, carries one of the best warranties in the business, and is (as I discovered back in October) stupid fun to blast around town in. The MPG thing is really just […]
If you read lots of car blogs, you already know how fashionable and trendy it is to call Toyota’s Corolla a bland, “beige” sort of A-to-B appliance and make sophomoric comments about how no enthusiast would ever seriously consider buying one. After spending a week with the new 2014 Toyota Corolla, however, let me assure you: if you’re not considering the Corolla, you’re probably stupid.
We’ve written a few times about the wickedly efficient (perhaps most efficient car in the world) Volkswagen XL1. I recently got to see the car over at EVS27 in Barcelona. Of course, I didn’t miss the opportunity to take a video and snap a few pics…
A few weeks ago, Ford announced that its new 2014 Ford Fiesta with a 1.0 liter Ecoboost 3 cylinder engine was the highest MPG car you could buy that wasn’t a hybrid with its 32/45 (37 combined) mpg rating.

Volkswagen introduced the 260+ mpg Volkswagen XL1 hybrid supercar to the American press last week at the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee. While we’ve covered VW’s genre-defying XL1 in the past (and even enjoyed a vicarious Volkswagen XL1 test drive), this is the car’s first time on US shores in production […]

At 261 MPG, the production version Volkswagen’s high-efficiency XL1 is nothing less than a supercar. It may not be super-fast, but its task is not conquering LeMans – its mission is to change the automotive landscape and establish a new standard in high-mpg commuting. The new VW XL1 does that, and looks for all the […]
Unlike some automakers who are diving head first into the electric car field, Ford is focusing a lot of energy on wringing the most MPG’s from petrol-powered engines. European countries are especially sensitive to the high cost of gasoline, so it makes sense that Ford has launched its 1.0 liter, 49 MPG EcoBoost Focus in the […]
