Looking for a practical, inexpensive and high fuel mileage vehicle can be a daunting task. Usually, the best fuel economy cars are either too small, or too expensive with a hybrid or electric-drive. That’s why the 4-door compact and subcompact vehicle categories have gained great attention lately due to its ability to strike the balance between all the various aforementioned purchasing criteria sought by the consumer. Entry-level cars like the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Mazda2 and Toyota Yaris all crowd the marketplace with a very respectable combined fuel economy well into 30 mpg range, and a starting price around $13,000 to $15,000. For 2014, Nissan jumps in the competition with the new Versa Note hatchback next to its Versa sedan sibling.
