2022 Kia Rio

As a subcompact sedan, the 2022 Kia delivers superb fuel economy for normal driving conditions. This inexpensive car runs on a 1.6-liter engine block that whips out up to 120 horsepower. Cranking out just above 110 lb-ft of torque, the 4-cylinder engine is synced with multi-point injection. The Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) transfers all power to the front wheels. You'll get up to 41 mpg on the highway from this nimble Kia car. If you drive in the city, you'll get 33 mpg. Holding approximately 12 gallons of unleaded gasoline, the fuel tank supports a driving range of nearly 500 miles.

Made for the compact niche in North America, the 2022 Kia Forte boasts excellent fuel economy. This sporty sedan is equipped with a 2.0-L engine that spits out approximately 150 total hp. Peaking at just over 130 lb-ft of torque, the DOHC inline-four powertrain is fully mated to the IVT. You should choose the Comfort Mode or Normal Mode for maximum fuel efficiency on the road. This agile Kia sedan is rated at 39 mpg on the highway. Thanks to a combined fuel economy of 33 mpg, you can confidently enjoy urban trips in this affordable model.

2022 Kia Niro

Engineered for the compact segment, the 2022 Kia Niro is driven by the Full Parallel Hybrid System that delivers approximately 140 gross horsepower. You'll tap into 195 lb-ft of torque from the default hybrid system on this five-seat crossover SUV. When it works between 1,800 and 2,500 RPM, the primary electric motor generates 43 net hp. Occurring at a rotational speed below 1,800 RPM, 125 lb-ft of torque is available from the motor. Lithium-ion polymer chemistry is incorporated into the 2022 Niro's hybrid powerplant. Operating at 240 V, the Li-ion polymer battery holds slightly under 1.6 kWh of electrical energy for rapid deployment. A dual-clutch, six-speed automatic transmission system syncs the Full Parallel Hybrid System with the front wheels. If you follow the suggestions from the EPA, the 2022 Niro boasts a combined fuel economy of 50 mpg. Additionally, this efficient Kia crossover SUV holds about 12 gallons of fuel.
