9. Chevrolet Impala - 525 Miles

Chevy’s soon-to-be-replaced Impala barely edged out the Nissan Maxima, topping its total driving range by just five miles. This automotive antelope features a 3.6-liter V6 and a six-speed automatic transmission. Don’t think this trio of sixes is the mark of the beast, it’s a really sweet combination as recently tested in the Buick LaCrosse.

The Impala can only lug around 17.5 gallons of fuel, second lowest in this comparison and a fair bit less than the Maxima. Thankfully it’s pretty efficient. The car delivers up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway (18 around town) giving it a theoretical maximum range of 525 miles.

    What about the 2013 Nissan Altima 4-cylinder???  Or is that not considered a “large sedan” It gets 684 miles to a tank on highway.

    How about a kia Optima. I rented one for a week and whenever I filled it up driving it across the country it gave me a range of about 520. Tie for last place?

    Quick facts direct from the EPA fuel economy website, the Nissan Maxima, Honda Accord, VW Passat, Buick lacrosse and all new smaller Toyota Avalon Hybrid are not classified as large, They are all classified as midsize! The Maxima is in fact smaller inside then the midsize Altima.

    I think that compare diesel engines with engines to gasoline or hybrid it is wrong, they should compare them each one is its category of motorization

    FYI, the gas version of the Passat would’ve placed 4th, along with the diesel version still at #1.
