Let me tell you about the more efficient Chevrolet cars that yield 30 miles per gallon or more, especially for those concerned about gas prices or looking to buy a more economical vehicle in this next 2012.
These Chevrolet are known as the champions of savings :
The Chevrolet Sonic made its debut in society at the Detroit Auto Show this year and is already on sale as a 2012 model. The Sonic is offered in two flavors: Sedan and Hatchback, and comes equipped with two engines, a 4-cylinder 1.8-liter displacement and 135 horsepower turbocharged, and a sporty version "RS" with 1.4 liters and 138 hp. Only three more HP. Chevrolet says that the family's baby will yield 40 MPG on the highway. If so, the Sonic will become part of a very exclusive club and share with the Ford Fiesta the subcompact segment leadership. The price of the Chevrolet Sonic starts at $13,735 for the Sedan version and $14,635 for the Hatchback. The Sonic will replace the sad Aveo model.
Chevrolet Camaro V6
Incredible but true. The V6 version of the Chevrolet Camaro, either with equipment base or the fully loaded RS yields 28 miles per gallon on the highway and is rumored to will soon reach the milestone of 30 miles which now has exclusive in this category, its archrival, the Ford Mustang.
This is almost science fiction coming from a "muscle car" equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 312 horsepower. This economic beast could not have come at a better time for both, General Motors, which desperately needs to sell all the cars it can, and buyers who see in the Camaro the possibility of saving fuel driving a powerful muscle car. The V6 Camaro started its career at $22,980 for the base model.
Chevrolet Cruze Eco
Although it has a design far more conservative, the Cruze is already a certified hit of sales. The Cruze is a very low-consumption car. According to official figures from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Chevrolet Cruze yields 36 miles per gallon on the highway. However, the Cruze Eco shines for its high yield, which jumps to 42 miles in this version. The Cruze Eco is equipped with the same 4-cylinder turbocharged 1.4 liters and 138 horsepower engine that mobilize the Sonic RS. Chevrolet Cruze announced they would sell a diesel engine, but while this does not happen the Cruze Eco, now available with an initial base price of $19,985, is the leader in the consumption of the Cruze line.
The Chevrolet Equinox crossover SUV is one of the most attractive vehicles in the segment of medium-sized pickups. So far has had sales exceptionally healthy and is one of the few vehicles that GM sold consistently at high numbers during its financial meltdown. The Equinox is powered exclusively by a 4-cylinder 2.4-liter displacement and 182 horsepower and when it is set as a front-wheel drive vehicle only yields 32 miles per gallon on the highway, set up as a vehicle for 4-wheel drive the Equinox only yields 29 miles per gallon on the highway, due to the extra weight the differential system for the distribution of traction adds to the vehicle. The Equinox base model starts its price at $23,450.
The Chevrolet HHR is offered with two 4-cylinder engines, one with 2.2 liters which produces155 horsepower and the other with 2.4-liter that produces 172 horsepower. But it is only the first one that runs 32 miles per gallon on the highway, by being equipped with a manual 5-speed gearbox. In all other models, the HHR runs 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The HHR's base price is $18,720 exactly for the model that offers the highest mileage. By the way, amazing redesign eh?
The medium Chevrolet Malibu is one of the most solid options in the midsize segment and along with the Equinox crossover SUV is the largest vehicle in the club of the most efficiency Chevrolet cars. The Malibu is one of the most historic names that Chevrolet has nowadays and the current model that is already circulating since 2008, reaches its membership in this exclusive club courtesy of its 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 169 horsepower which enables the Malibu to get 33 miles per gallon in its 6-speed automatic transmission model. Chevrolet has ready a new Malibu for 2012 which promises great things for this midsize sedan. The Malibu prices start at $21.995 for a 4-cylinder base model.
The Volt is a totally new concept and a controversial pioneer giving plenty to talk about. Basically, it's a hybrid, but unlike conventional hybrids like the Toyota Prius, in the Volt, most of the work is done by the electric motor and not the gasoline. In fact, the Volt's gasoline engine will only work on three occasions, the first to charge the car battery when it is low, the second to assist the electric engine in certain circumstances, and then to maintain its integrity of this. The Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in hybrid, which means that the size of its battery needs to feed on the electric grid to achieve a full charge. The Volt's price starts at $40,280, but with the incentives tax of up to $7,500, the price could be effectively reduced up to $32,720.
With this list of the most efficient cars, Chevrolet shows how much has evolved lately. So, according to the Chevrolet cars presented above, which one do you like the most?

The re-design of the new Chevrolet HHR is amazing, I'd pay $18k for it. It used to have this car on my list of ugliest cars ever seen .
New 2012 Chevrolet HHR
There's no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It's cheap and nasty or expensive and cheerful. NYC Style!
The new Chevy HHR redesign is going over well at our dealership, too.
The design is a bit more bold, yet still retains the shape and familiar trademarks of other current Chevy models.
