Aside from “greenifying” your car, you can choose also choose an eco-friendly option the next time you’re in the market for a new one. Our South Texas car dealerships carry a range of models, some of which rank among the most eco-friendly on the market. From the FIAT 500C, to the versatile Ford Focus Electric, here are a few eco-friendly options to consider:


It sure is a nifty little ride. The FIAT 500C includes a 1.4L I-4 101hp engine, a 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS), driver knee airbag, electronic stability, side seat mounted airbags, cruise control and so much more!

If you’re looking for affordability, the Ford Focus is a fantastic option. The electric version is about as eco-friendly as cars come. Aside from its spacious interior, critics have voted the Ford Focus among the best looking small cars on the road. And the eco-friendliness of this car can’t be denied. Additional features include Xenon headlights and LED taillights, dual-heated front seats, push-button start, and a perimeter alarm system. Sounds good, huh?


Plenty of power wrapped up in a small package, the Chevrolet Volt is a great option if you’re hoping to go green. With a wide range of features, it’s become a favorite among the Chevy lineup. And if space is a concern, don’t worry. The Volt’s got plenty of it, and its functionality isn’t too shabby, either!
