Question safe/good gas mileage car

I'm looking to purchase a new or even slightly used car for somewhere under around 19,000. Most important features is that it is safe (I have a 6 year old) and that it is good on gas. So many people are telling me so many different things that I am lost! Lol.

We found a good deal on a 2013 Chevy Cruze (15,900). Seemed to rank high in its class but I previously had a 2006 Cobalt and had a lot of issues with it... plus they are very similar since really the Cruze took over for the Cobalt.

I was also looking at the Honda Fit (its different from anything Ive had before)
However I was told that altho its 1st in its class... its a crappy class. But is the Cruze not in the same class???

I'm so confused! Lol.

What are your suggestions?

There is absolutely nothing similar really between the Cruze and Cobalt. Cobalt is mediocre at best, Cruze is an excellent car. Just make sure you get the 1.4T instead of the 1.8 engine.

New engine, new transmission, new body, new interior, better everything.
