3. Buick LaCrosse eAssist - 648

Buick’s large and lovely LaCrosse earns a bronze medal in today’s mileage melee. The eAssist version is the thriftiest model and it really goes the distance, capable of devouring nearly 650 miles of open road on a single tank.

It holds 18 gallons of gasoline and is rated by the EPA at 25 MPG city and 36 highway. Under the hood this mild hybrid is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. An electric motor and a small lithium-ion battery provide up to 15 additional horsepower.

    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.
