Fuel efficient vehicles dominate the Detroit Auto Show.

Practical, affordable, good on gas.

That's what car buyers are asking for, and automakers are answering, sparking strong sales for two years running.

Many of the 40 new models at this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit are small and midsize sedans that get great mileage.

Hybrids like the Toyota Camry, Honda Civic and Ford Fusion can get more than 40 miles a gallon.

Some electric cars can go 90 miles on a single charge.

With gas prices still high, drivers want to save fuel and funds.

Experts say getting back to the basics helped the big three to get back in business.

After hitting a 30 year low two years ago Chrysler, Ford and GM are all selling strong, forced to listen to buyers like never before.

It should continue.

Low interest rates, new incentives and more demand could mean these small cars will sell big.
