Sports car: Chevrolet Corvette
Price: Chevrolet Corvette
Mileage: $47,045 - $102,450
26 mpg Hwy, 16 mpg City

Two questions just popped into your mind.

First: "Fuel efficient?"

Second: "Cost effective?"

The answer to both is a resounding "Oh, yes."

As far as fuel economy goes, look at the numbers, not under the hood. Even with that big V-8 engine and 430 horsepower output, the Corvette gets 26 mpg in highway driving.

The smaller, four-cylinder Pontiac Solstice GXP, which ranks second in this category, has a two mile per gallon advantage. The Corvette more than makes up the difference with its amazing value retention.

After five years on the road, the Corvette convertible is still worth 65% of its original cost compared to the Solstice's 58%. The Corvette also has far lower insurance costs than other cars in its class.
