A #sponsored  plug (pun intended). 
if you’re looking for horsepower, torque and fuel economy, then you need to look at the new DENSO Iridium TT Spark Plug.

This little Mazda clone we'll miss. 
Basing the Scion iA on the Mazda2 gives it a head start with solid Mazda design and build quality plus excellent highway fuel economy of 41 mpg.

Mazda zoom-zoom; Toyota support; 40+ mpg. What's not to love.

It's a whole new world. All-wheel drive and sport utility space no longer mean sacrificing fuel economy. But it comes at a price. http://www.cleanfleetreport.com/top-10-2014-2013-awd-4wd-suv-crossover-mpg/
Sometimes you need more than a car, but still want the best mpg. These are the top 10 awd/4wd vehicles on the market.

The year in year, according to Clean Fleet Report. And it's going to be another wild one in 2016. http://www.cleanfleetreport.com/say-hello-to-2016/
We can say with confidence that cars have never been better bargains, offering cost-effective paths to a “greener” transportation.

Larry closes out the year in Honda's new big little crossover. http://www.cleanfleetreport.com/road-test-2016-honda-hr-v-awd/
If practical, well-engineered interior versatility and fuel economy are your priorities, the 2016 Honda HR-V could be the subcompact crossover for you.

Finally, extra fuel economy along with a dose of style upgrade for the minivan segment.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will have a 30-mile all-electric driving range and is expected to deliver up to 80 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) on EPA

There are many more to think about, but these five deserve a special look.

Toyota finally adds hybrid drive to its popular compact SUV, the RAV4. http://www.cleanfleetreport.com/news-2016-toyota-rav4-hybrid/
Gasoline prices are expected to edge up some more in the coming weeks; that makes the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid’s value proposition a little more enticing.

VW may not have diesels on the lot right now, but some of their other hardware deserves a look. John Faulkner checks out the turbocharged Jetta. http://www.cleanfleetreport.com/road-test-2015-volkswagen-jetta-1-8t-se-automatic/
In its sixth generation, the 2015 Jetta 1.8T SE has had minor but important interior and exterior design changes that continue its top ranking in the compact category for comfort, interior spaciousness, fuel economy and ease of operation.
