Honda At The Top of Fuel Economy Ratings

Of the top 5 fuel economy saving vehicles, Honda took home two spots for 2010. Honda finished in third with the Civic and Insight hybrids, fourth with the CR-Z hybrid, according to a recent study on all the major automotive brands.

The Insight was commended by Kelley Blue Book for combining great features, value and performance at the gas pump. A well-equipped Insight starts at only $19,800, and can achieve 40 mpg city/43 mpg highway/41 mpg combined.

Drivers are also assisted thanks to the Honda Eco Assist - this system offers a two-pronged approach to increased fuel savings: Drivers can engage the Insight's ECON button, which adjusts the car's functions to prioritize fuel economy. Eco Assist also includes a built-in feedback mechanism that can help teach owners to drive more efficiently.

The new CR-Z gets 34 mpg with a six-speed manual transmission or 37 with a continuously variable automatic. The 2011 Honda CR-Z is the least expensive of the new hybrid small cars out from the competition. The sporty EX version with navigation system has a sticker price of $23,310.

Automakers selling models in the US have been trying to boost fuel efficiency ratings after President Barack Obama in April ordered a 5% annual increase in mileage to an average of 35.5 mpg by 2016 models.
