Car buyers comparison site?

I’m looking into buying a new car, and finding the process quite frustrating.  I’ve checked out MSN auto’s and several other sites, but so far have been unable to find a site which answers a simple question.  Because our garage has one large bay and one small bay, I need to find a list of vehicles that are under 175 inches in length.  I’d like them sorted by fuel economy rating.

Has anybody seen a resource that would allow such a query?

    Believe it or not, I think you're best best for an fairly unpopular search metric like length will be the index in the back of a Car and Driver magazine.
    Go figure. Print is still better at some things. :)

    You'll probably enjoy their editorials too.

    Good luck.

    I would suggest Edmunds.com

    One of the best around.

    Does a Prius not work?

    It might, Ma. But there are many more hybrids on the market now, and I’m considering diesel as well.

    – The 2008 Ford Focus is exactly 175" long. What Mum said about the Prius can work too since that's 175" long as well. Other cars that go in that range include The 2008 Nissan Altima (175") and The Smart Car (108.6"). Hope that helps your search!
