This is the list of the TOP five cheapest cars that get 40mpg's. So people who want to spend less but drive more should really get a look at these cars because it does not get any better thasn this at these prices:

2014 Fiat 500 Pop - $16,995
31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, 34 mpg combined
Fiat’s cute, European, and retro 500 hatchback can also be described as cheap and efficient, as this tiny Italian runabout achieves 40 mpg on the highway when equipped with the standard five-speed manual transmission. Sure, you’ll make some compromises in roominess and power (the 1.4-liter engine only produces 100 hp), but the 500 tries its best to make up for these shortcomings with its funky design inside and out. It’s even available as a 500c convertible model, although that car is more expensive at a starting price of $20,495 with destination.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan Drivers Side View
2014 Chevrolet Sonic sedan LT - $17,205
29 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, 33 mpg combined
When equipped with the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, the Chevrolet Sonic is a surprisingly fun urban runabout that also happens to get 40 mpg on the highway. To get this rating, buyers must avoid the optional six-speed automatic and stick with the six-speed manual transmission that comes standard when you upgrade to the turbo engine option ($700). The Sonic is available as a standard four-door sedan or a more versatile hatchback model that costs just $700 more. 

 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage DE - $13,790 34 mpg city, 42 mpg highway, 37 mpg combined
The smallest Mitsubishi may not have many other saving graces, but the Mirage is undeniably efficient, with a 42-mpg EPA highway rating. The low starting price represents the base Mitsubishi Mirage DE, which is equipped with the standard five-speed manual transmission; outfitting this tiny, three-cylinder, 74-hp hatchback with the optional CVT raises the EPA rating to an even higher 44 mpg highway, but also raises the price by $1000.

2014 Nissan Versa Front Three Quarters
2014 Nissan Versa Sedan S Plus - $14,600
31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, 35 mpg combined
The Nissan Versa has been one of the cheapest cars in the U.S. market for years now, and you don’t have to add much to the base Versa S to achieve the vaunted 40-mpg mark. Stepping up from the base S with its five-speed manual and into the CVT-equipped S Plus model gets buyers a ticket into the 40-mpg club, even if the Versa sedan is still sparsely-equipped at this low price point. These ratings apply to the Nissan Versa Note hatchback as well, although that model starts at a slightly higher $16,050.

2014 Ford Fiesta Sedan Passengers Three Quarters In Motion
2014 Ford Fiesta sedan SE EcoBoost - $17,400
32 mpg city, 45 mpg highway, 37 mpg combined
Ford’s smallest car in the States is now home to the company’s smallest engine on our shores as well. The Ford Fiesta EcoBoost is powered by a 1.0-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder that nets an impressive 45 mpg on the highway, higher than any other non-hybrid, gasoline-powered car on the market. We were impressed with this surprisingly sprightly little engine in our first drive. It costs just $995 extra on Fiesta SE models and pairs exclusively with a five-speed manual transmission.
