Many drivers find that most of their travels are spent on the highway. If this is the case with you, you'll want to make sure that you choose a vehicle that leads the pack in highway mileage.

The 13 picks that follow (our list is longer than the usual 10 due to ties) are the sedans with the best highway fuel economy for 2013. As you might expect, there are quite a few hybrids on our list. The Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, the Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Honda Civic Hybrid hold top spots. The list also features two Volkswagen diesels — the Passat Diesel and the Jetta Diesel.

Note that electric cars were excluded since their limited range makes them impractical choices for many shoppers. When ranking each model, we used ratings for the powertrain with the best fuel economy. Our rankings are based on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) miles-per-gallon ratings for highway travel.
