6. Subaru Outback 24/30/26

Subarus used to be hard to come by on fuel-economy lists. That’s because the standard all-wheel drive that Subaru vehicles come with (minus the BRZ) add to weight, and hurt fuel ratings. The Outback, which is based on the Subaru Legacy is one crossover to look out for. The lineartronic CVT-equipped 2013 Subaru Outback manages to get an impressive 24/30 mpg city/highway, and a combined rating of 26 mpg.

    Hard to believe that RX is as good as it gets. Amazing what a good city MPG number does to the overall score.

    how could anyone be dumb enough to buy a front-wheel drive wannabe SUV. idiots exclaim over the high mpg which is only available with the front-wheel drive. my 2011 subaru outback averages 30mpg and can go anywhere. these other vehicles are useless off road. watch youtube videos if you dont believe me. a total investment of $25k for mine, makes the others seem absurd.

     So… you honestly think crossover buyers care about off-roading?

  • Arturo Lopez

     EPA estimates for the 2011 subie are at 22/29, and the 2013 mazda are at 25/31 for the under-25k-AWD, I wouldn’t call that absurd. Subaru AWD is great and all, but I don’t see any major complaints from Mazda’s AWD.

    The Juke gas mileage is a lie.  I had one and just got rid of it.  No matter how much I babied it, I couldn’t get better than high 25′s on the highway – and sub-20 in the city. So, in reality it wouldn’t even be on this list if people know its true capabilities

    Where do you buy your fuel?  I’ve noticed the mileage may vary  — a lot — depending on how much non-gasoline is in one’s “gas”

    Is there an easier way to save fuel. The world’s first multi-vitamin for any car and it’s called EnviroTabs. This is a super thing, because the price is not high, but the real savings!
