Driving Excitement Meets Fuel-Sipping Sensibility

If the car you’re considering is fast and fun to drive, you’ll pay for that privilege at the fuel pump. At least, that’s the old way of thinking when it comes to the assumed pairing of high performance and low fuel economy 

We’re here to let you know there are plenty of sporty sedans, sleek coupes, and sun-loving convertibles that won’t dent your wallet with dismal fuel mileage. Even traditional muscle cars, such as the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, now come standard with turbocharged four-cylinder engines that provide punchy acceleration and impressive economy. 

For anyone who needs the added practicality of four doors and a usable rear seat, the BMW 3 Series, Mazda6, and Alfa Romeo Giulia prove a sporty sedan can have the drinking habits of an economy car.

Or, if you choose to throw caution to the wind – not to mention rear passengers, bulky luggage, and your favorite hat – it’s tough to beat top-down driving thrills in convertibles like the Mazda Miata, Mercedes-Benz SLC, or Mini Cooper. All three are a riot to drive while remaining kind to your fuel budget.
