I'm currently driving a BMW 325i, 2002 I believe.
I'm planning on selling it to buy a newish used, more fuel efficient car.

What are my best options?
Preferences in order of priority:
Fuel Efficiency
Nice, attractive car
Not use premium gas if possible
4 Doors for cheaper insurance

price range: about 10k (if possible)
Mpg: about 35 mpg

***I honestly do not care how much horse power or how fast the car can go. I won't be racing or anything.

Any good suggestions?

Updated with price range...
Sorry for the vague description.

Civic 2012 is an option but I really don't like the exterior. Looks really bland to me.

Read up about the VW and it looks good and everything but maintenance is costly.

My car is way too costly for me. Maintenance, the 15mpg, everything. It's nice and all but times are hard and gas prices are high lol.

If you're looking for cheap maintenance and good mpg, your best bet is an asian car. If civic is out of the question consider 350z. Only problem is insurance is probably expensive.

Damn your bmw gets you 15 mpg? Is that the normal mpg rate? I know the new 335i get 25-30 mpg. But anyways how much does it cost you to maintain it? I'm considering buying a new car and right now i have an accord, was looking into an audi so i just wanted to see the difference.

But anyways why don't you just get a 2010 civic or something? Since the 2012 isn't your favorite exterior.

vw tdi

^ how does 40mpg sound?

Golf 2.5 gets about 30 with 170hp.

I would definitely get a golf mk5 if I were you. Or used mini cooper.

Civics are tasteless.

Are you seriously getting 15mpg's in a 325? If youre getting that mileage, its your driving habits.

But, a diesel VW would be a great contender. Electronics are a bit iffy, but theyve gotten much better. If its used, look for one with manual rollup windows and door locks. It'll help on maintenece.

As fuel efficiency is your major concerned then, I would advise you to go for Japanese cars. As these cars are known for its fuel efficiency and reliability, also these cars are easier to work on and the parts are easily available.
I would suggest you to go for
Honda Civic or Toyota Yaris. I too, recently bought the later one from autopartsfair.com and so far, I am pretty satisfied with the car

Get a s2000 ap2 if you have money, ap1 if you're on a budget. But honestly rather just settle for the best and get ap2. You get the reliability and maintenance of a japanese car, as well as the sportiness and power. 240 hp coming at you from a 2 liter engine, naturally aspirated. best 4 cyl engine ever
