If you're looking to save some money this year, there are few better ways to accomplish this than driving a fuel-efficient vehicle. Not only will a car with low fuel consumption save you money every month, it will pollute the environment far less than a traditional gas guzzler.

Our guide will exhibit a number of vehicles that are tailored for different lifestyles, all while remaining entirely fuel efficient.
To maintain consistency and availability, all of these models are from 2017 and can be found on Kijiji Autos.
