The 10 top-performing four-cylinder vehicles have been named by the editors of Kelley Blue Book, with an eye toward high gas prices, tough emissions requirements and driver demand for vehicle performance.

"Many car shoppers may be surprised at the sheer number of performance-oriented new cars available today that boast 'only' a four-cylinder engine," said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for kbb.com, in a statement.

"Even more surprising is the amount of power and performance elicited from many of these four-bangers, providing a satisfying alternative for enthusiasts who also may be looking to save a little cash at the gas pump."

The KBB list alphabetically:

CAR ENGINE HP MPG CITY/HWY
Audi TT/TTS 2.0 turbo 200/265 21/29
Honda Civic Si 2.0 i-VTEC 197 21/29
Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 turbo 210 21/30
Lotus Elise 1.8 189 21/27
Lotus Exige 1.8 189 20/26
Mazda Mazdaspeed3 2.3 turbo 263 18/25
Mini Cooper S 1.6 turbo 172/208 26/34
John Cooper Works 1.6 turbo 172/208 25/33
