A variety of fuel-efficient automobiles are available to lease. Choosing which option is best can be a challenge and is dependent on preference and intended use. The most efficient cars blend a high city and highway mileage rate, while offering reliability at cost. The majority of these vehicles are sedans, utilizing lighter weights to achieve optimal gas mileage. These options deliver a variety of comfortable packages and warranty options.
The Honda Insight operates under the Eco Assist System, an efficient feature enabling better fuel economy. Costing less then the Toyota Prius, the Honda Insight achieves 40 mpg highway and 43 highway, making it a leader among fuel-efficient automobiles.
