Fuel-Efficient Cars in Montana

  • 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid

    Honda has had a long reputation for building fuel-efficient cars, and drivers know that some of the most conservative fuel sippers can be found at Montana Honda Dealers. The recently released 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is just the first in Honda’s new wave of hybrid and alternative fuel cars, joining the already fuel-conscious Civic, Accord, and Fit.

Efficient Gasoline Engines

Honda has built some of the most efficient hybrid cars in the world—we’ll get to the hybrid and alternative fuel engines in a minute—but drivers who are interested in a traditional gasoline engine will likely be surprised at just how efficient Honda’s non-hybrid cars are.


2016 Honda Civic

The 2016 Honda Civic has two engine options, with the base Civic Sedan LX CVT earning an EPA-estimated 41 highway and 31 city mpg* and the new turbocharged engine earning an EPA-estimated 42 highway and 31 city mpg.* Not all small cars are this efficient; check out our 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited review to see a comparison.

2017 Honda Accord

It’s tough to improve on a midsize sedan as popular as the Accord, but staying the course on fuel economy and upgrading some features will do just the trick. The new 2017 Accord LX Sedan with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg.**

2016 Honda Fit

The hatchback design of the Fit offers a bit more flexibility than a traditional sedan, and base LX trims equipped with a CVT are rated at an EPA-estimated 41 highway and 33 city mpg.*

While each of these vehicles is a bit smaller than a family minivan like the Odyssey or SUV like the Pilot, they bring with them some of the highest fuel economies and offer plenty of passenger and cargo room. Standard features like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and a multi-angle rearview camera make the base models so well-appointed that many of our drivers are happy with the entry-level trims.

Alternative Fuel Options

The Fit, Civic, and Accord all offer high fuel-economy ratings, but there’s only so much a gasoline engine can do before it’s time to look at other, more efficient options. In addition to hybrid engines, Honda is developing electric cars and fuel cell vehicles for one of the most diverse alternative fuel vehicle lineups.

  • 2014 Fit EV: Honda created an electric version of their famous subcompact hatchback that doesn’t take a drop of gasoline; it doesn’t even have a tailpipe. Leave on a full charge and the Fit EV has an estimated driving range of more than 80 miles.***
  • 2014 Insight Hybrid: Honda’s first hybrid is still going strong. The Insight is a unique four-door hatchback with a peppy engine built for efficiency first, earning an EPA-estimated 44 highway and 41 city mpg.****
  • 2015 Civic Hybrid: Honda’s world-renowned small car was one of their first vehicles to get the hybrid treatment, making it even more efficient than gas-powered models with an EPA-estimated 47 highway and 44 city mpg.*****
  • 2016 CR-Z: The idea of a hybrid sports car might sound strange, but that’s only until you get behind the wheel. This two-seater is a spiritual successor to the CR-X and is capable of up to 140 hp on manual transmission models despite earning an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 36 city mpg on CVT models.*
  • 2017 Accord Hybrid: After a year off, the Accord Hybrid is back, and it received a fuel economy boost as well as a trio of trim options. Earning an EPA-estimated 49 city, 47 highway, and 48 combined mpg,** the Accord Hybrid is one of the most efficient options in our lineup.
  • Clarity: Honda has announced the soon-to-be-available Clarity Fuel Cell, Clarity Electric, and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, giving drivers two zero-emission options (fuel cell and electric) and bringing back a plug-in hybrid model that can be charged via an outlet for extended electric-only driving. Fuel economy estimates are forthcoming.

The latest hybrids, like the 2017 Accord Hybrid, have a diverse selection of standard and available technology features that show there’s more to a modern hybrid than just its fuel economy.

Reviews of Fuel-Efficient Cars

You’ve seen the specs; now see what the critics have to say about a few of these fuel-efficient Honda cars:

  • Car and Driver on the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid: “The new Accord Hybrid is quiet and comfortable for drivers and passengers alike, and seat-of-the-pants acceleration and braking performances should exceed most expectations … its EPA estimates are the best of the mid-size hybrid sedans.”
  • Consumer Reports on the 2016 Honda Civic: “The Honda Civic is back—recapturing its position as a mature, substantial economy car with enough elegant touches that make you feel like you spent more money than you did.”
  • Edmunds on the 2016 Honda Fit: “If there’s one thing this Honda is known for, after all, it’s the incredible amount of stuff you can fit inside its pint-sized hatchback body. Today’s Fit also has more rear legroom than ever, and it’s got a respectable roster of standard and optional technology, too. Throw in excellent fuel economy and you’ve got a uniquely talented vehicle that offers great value in this segment.”
