MPG: 51
Estimated cost: $4,760 - $6,350

Consumer Reports selected these cars with very specific criteria in mind: None are more than 10 years old, and the decision was based entirely on fuel economy and reliability.

That doesn't mean they're all dream cars though.

The ultra-thrifty two-seat insight gets the best mileage of any car on this list. And Consumer Reports applauds its reliability. But the magazine does note some serious downsides.

"The interior is cramped, noisy, and uncomfortable, and the ride is hard. Among hybrids, both the Toyota Prius and the Honda Civic Hybrid are better cars," Consumer Reports' Web site notes.
