Combined Gas Mileage: 32 mpg
Price: $21,625

Choose the standard, non-hybrid Chevy Malibu if saving on the price tag is most important for you. Though it’ll cost nearly $7,000 less than its hybrid counterpart, it may be worth the extra expense when it comes to weighing fuel savings versus the total cost of the car (the hybrid gets up to 15 mpg more than the base Malibu). If hybrids aren’t your thing, the Malibu does eke out 2 mpg more than other cars in the midsize segment.
