33 City / 40 Highway / 36 Combined
$16,990

Another entry for the Honda, although the sub-compact Honda Fit hatchback only achieves its highest marks in its base form, the LX. This entry level model also requires a continuously variable transmission to achieve its impressive 36-mpg-combined rating. That said, you’ll find the same engine – a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter – across the Fit line, where it produces 128 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque (manual-trans models are slightly more powerful, packing 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque). Prices start at $16,190, although the CVT is an $800 option that puts the final price at just under $17,000.
