Sedans offer a certain measure of convenience for drivers who regularly transport two rows of passengers. For those who rarely need second-row seating, a coupe could be an ideal choice. Coupes tend to place driving enjoyment above all else and the segment offers some of the most engaging and performance-oriented picks on the market. Additionally, many coupes offer fuel efficiency that will treat your wallet kindly at the pump.

The 12 picks that follow (our list is longer than the usual 10 due to ties) are the most fuel-efficient coupes for 2014. Our list includes a microcar, sports cars, luxury cars and two-door versions of popular family sedans. Each model is allowed just one appearance on our list, for its most fuel-efficient powertrain, Note that electric vehicles are excluded from this list. Limited range and a lack of charging stations make these cars impractical for many drivers. Most buyers aren't likely to cross-shop them with the models listed below.

The EPA's combined fuel economy rating is based on miles-per-gallon ratings for city and highway travel, using the following formula: 55 percent of city mpg rating plus 45 percent of highway mpg rating.
