10 Surprisingly Fuel-efficient Sports Cars

Scion FR-S

Scion's FR-S takes a chapter straight out of the sports car textbook. With a futuristic and aggressive design, the FR-S has the look of a true sports car. A 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine brings 200-horsepower to the six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. It may not boast the high horsepower that other sports cars have, but when it comes to miles per gallon, the FR-S is doing just fine. The automatic transmission delivers 25 miles per gallon (10.6 kilometers per liter) in the city and 34 miles per gallon (14.5 kilometers per liter) on the highway, while the manual gets 22 miles per gallon city and 30 miles per gallon highway (9.4 and 12.8 kilometers per liter). Both sets of numbers are more than respectable for any car in the sports car category.
