Re: buying new car - good on gas

Of cars currently on the market, I think I'd say Mazda 3 too.

Unfortunately in the U.S. market the options for a 5 door car (for reasonable $) are limited:

Hyundai Elantra GT
Kia Forte
Mazda 3
Mini Countryman
VW Golf or GTI (next gen of this coming sometime in 2014 and worth waiting for IMO)
Subaru Impreza
Subaru Outback

Re: buying new car - good on gas

I drove a Mazda3 5 door a few years ago and really liked it. It was surprisingly fast even with 4 people in it. I also really like the vw tdi's. My passat gets mid 30s in the city and 42 on the highway. The new ones do even better.

If you are looking for performance the Subaru impreza WRX would be a good choice.
Will be slightly under your MPG's though.
