2010 Toyota Prius

This Prius model was the third sold in the U.S. Unlike many of the other used cars with good mileage; this one performs better in the city than on the highway. It features a rating of 51 city/48 hwy/50 cmb mpg. The Toyota Prius is also renowned for its great reliability ratings.

2010 Honda Civic Hybrid

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Ford didn't waste any time getting into the fuel-conservation competition with their first hybrid mid-size sedan. It was released alongside the Mercury Milan hybrid. This Fusion hybrid gas mileage is rated at 41 city/36 hwy/39 cmb mpg. This is one of the ideal used hybrid cars for inter-city commuting.

2013 Volkswagen Jetta

The non-hybrid Jetta receives a maximum of 30 city/42 hwy/36 cmb mpg while you can expect to receive 42 city/48 hwy/44 cmb mpg out of the hybrid model. For an engine that is solely ICE (internal-combustion engine), these mpg numbers are quite impressive for the 2013 model year.

2012 Hyundai Veloster

It's possible to drive in style with a used car and still get good gas mileage. This vehicle performs at 27/37/31 mpg, which isn't as high as some sedans, but the hatchback style is totally worth it.
