Choosing the right fuel-efficient vehicleBy Kijiji Autos
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.
Typically, when we think about fuel-efficient vehicles, we imagine compact hybrids with zippy electric engines, but what about the family with three kids who all play hockey—is there an economical option for them? 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.
