Being fuel efficient is officially fashionable, and affordable cars now have more to offer than ever before. That’s why has arranged a third annual list of the best gas-sippers for the money. The article, Top 14 Best New Cars For 2014: Under $20,000, Over 30 MPG, names the vehicles that should be on every budget-minded and eco-friendly short list.

The world of cars is constantly changing, with automakers rolling out fresh designs every year that will set the tone for their future and the future of what we see on the road. For the upcoming year, a wide variety of cars will be released with new updates, brand new models and impressive technology and performance improvements that will force the competition to catch up or fall behind.

The article selects the vehicles that make the very best combination of value and fuel economy at a low price, whether they are compact cars or roomy five-door wagons. It also names the price and fuel economy figures of each vehicle, plus other defining characteristics that may help sway buyers in one direction or another. When it comes to fuel-sippers, this is the definitive list of 2014.

"This is always one of our most popular lists, and we are delighted to update it to feature the most affordable and fuel efficient vehicles for the 2014 model year," said Founder and CEO Doug Hamlin. "No matter what, every new car buyer wants to get the most out of their money. The cars we've highlighted here will not only save at the dealership, but at the pump as well. They are the future of the eco-minded movement that is at the forefront of the automotive industry today. Readers can thumb through the list, and then conduct more detailed research with the New Cars Buying Guide."

The list features some of the biggest and most recognizable models in the world, with a few familiar faces and a couple of young challengers that are re-writing the rules. They all sport low prices and high fuel economy figures, but don't be surprised to find luxurious interiors and dynamic handling abilities either.

Each of the Big Three U.S. manufacturers make two appearances on the list, thanks to renewed dedication to small cars and fuel-efficient engines. Chevrolet offers two strong vehicles in the Sonic and Cruze, while the Ford Fiesta and Focus are among the most athletic cars in the bunch. Chrysler splits their offerings between the Dodge Dart and Fiat 500, two cars with tons of personality and the numbers to back it up.

As always, imports are hot on their tail. Toyota also boasts two cars on the list, starting with the brand new 2014 Corolla that is better than ever. Likewise, the 2014 Mazda3 brings design in the class to new heights. We're holding our breath for the 2015 Honda Fit, which isn't out yet but promises incredible value for the package.

“There is a lot to choose from, and is here to help interested buyers make the right decision,” said Hamlin.
