As new cars hit the market, take a look at some of the fuel-efficient vehicles that are getting attention.

Honda Accord Hybrid: The Honda Accord Hybrid has an EPA rating of 50 and has a combined city/highways rating of 47 miles per gallon. It also includes blind-spot warning and a rearview camera.

Chevrolet Spark Electric: An all-electric car, the Chevrolet Spark Electric is powered by a 130-horsepower electric motor. Chevrolet says its battery has a range of 80 miles before recharging. It has the equivalent of 119 miles per gallon combined driving.

Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid: This plug-in version of the Sonata Hybrid is expected to have a larger battery pack that will allow for a greater electric-only driving range.

Tesla Model X: Tesla is unveiling the first all-electric SUV crossover. It has optional dual-engine all-wheel drive, which Tesla claims allows the vehicle to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel: This four-wheel drive vehicle gets 21 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway, which is an improvement from the V-8 Grand Cherokee.
