Honda Fit Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 Hondas have been lagging the leaders in fuel economy. But with new "Earth Dreams" engines and CVT transmissions (pardon the redundancy), they've closed the gap. When fitted with the CVT (continuously variable transmission), the Fit LX rates 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway in the EPA's tests. The city rating is especially impressive, and both figures are much better than the 2013 Fit's 28/35 (with a five-speed conventional automatic) and a little better than the Nissan Versa Note's 31/40 (with a CVT). You won't find a higher EPA city figure in any other non-diesel, non-hybrid car you'd want to drive. The highway figure, on the other hand, is matched or slightly exceeded by a few somewhat larger cars. Small yet tall hatchbacks are aerodynamically challenged. With a bit more poundage and stickier tires, the Fit EX and EX-L don't test quite as well, with scores of 32/38. But I doubt their real-world fuel economy would differ significantly from the LX's. The days when manual transmissions ruled the EPA charts are history. With a six-speed manual, the Honda Fit rates 29/37. While this is better than the 2013 5-speed manual's 27/33, the much zippier Ford Fiesta ST isn't far behind with 26/35. For those who like to row their own, another Fiesta variant, the SE EcoBoost with a three-cylinder turbocharged engine, is the way to go: 31/43. In my real-world suburban driving the trip computers of the Fit, Versa Note, and Fiesta SE EB all regularly reported averages over 40 and as high as the low 50s (with infrequent stops and a feather-light foot). see full Honda Fit review

Nissan Sentra Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Aside from some speciality models that cannot be heavily optioned, the Sentra continues to top the rest of its segment in fuel economy, with EPA ratings of 30 mpg city, 39 highway. Well, almost. The new-for-2014 Mazda3 does a bit better with 30/40. Even with its base 1.8-liter engine the Kia Forte doesn't rate nearly as well, 25/36. If you want leather and such you're also getting the 2.0-liter engine, which is rated 24/36. The Sentra's trip computer substantiated its EPA estimates, and then some. On the highway cruising at 65 it reported a two-way average of 47 (up from 40 last year, probably due to warmer temps). In suburban driving the trip computer regularly reported averages of 36 to 37 (up from 32 last year), and on one run to my son's school with a very light foot on the pedals it topped 46. see full Nissan Sentra review

With MPG levels of 26 city/ 28 highway (even though you can go as far as 32 mpg highway and obtain an average of 26 mpg on mixed driving with the occasional engine redlining), the fuel economy of this car is pretty adequate. On stock form it will not drain your wallet, even when Nissan has the ECU tuned in the SE-R and SE-R Spec V to run a bit richer than in the Altima. It's no Prius but it's not as bad as, let's say, a modified Mazda rotary engine. Modifications like cold air intake and header will decrease some MPG but the change isn't too drastic either. see full Nissan Sentra review
