Most Efficient Mid-Size Cars

Below are the top 10 most efficient mid-size cars in order of increasing city fuel consumption.

Five hybrid cars take out the top 5 spots with gasoline cars making up the remainder. Toyota's Prius comfortably beats all others though, including the nearest hybrid, which is the Ford Fusion.

Its a surprise not to see any clean diesel engines in this size category, which are generally more efficient than gasoline engines. This is something that will definitely change in the future if diesels begin to get more popular.
