10. (TIE) 3-Series Hybrid, Mercedes E400 Hybrid, Infiniti M35h, Buick LaCrosse/Regal eAssist: 29 mpg

Who is to say that luxury car buyers aren’t affected by high gas prices? If you want to drive in comfort, style, and have the latest high tech goodies in a car, you shouldn’t have to pay more at the pump for it. Here are our picks for the top 10 most fuel friendly luxury cars, ranked in order of their combined city/highway mpg numbers.

Quite a few luxury cars hit the 29 mpg mark combined. The most impressive of the bunch is the Buick LaCrosse, which manage to get solid fuel economy, despite its bigger size. The Infiniti, Mercedes and BMW vehicles make do with a high-power pairing of a six-cylinder engine and an electric motor, which gives the end result of over 300-hp.

The Buicks use a mild hybrid system called eAssist which pairs a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with a conventional automatic, and a compact lithium ion battery to get its impressive fuel economy numbers.

    Calling the ILX a luxury car is ridiculous. Get real.

    You get real, Tom. I own one and it is better than non luxury cars. The service at the dealer is also over the top with perks, which is part of the luxury experience.

    As of 1053 4/3/2013: “This rear-wheel drive Lexus is still fun to dive and manages to get 31 mpg combined, making it frugal and exciting.”

    …and apparently suitable for Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

    LOL @ Ford’s fuel economy claims. I’m going to go ahead and call their bluff on that Lincoln MKZ claim right now. They lied about the Fusion Hybrid and the C-Max, this won’t be an exception lol

    It’s crazy to have to click through 10 pages to see everything. I know you want your ad money, but this is yet another webpage I won’t visit just because of this. At least have an option to view all on one page.

    My sister’s 1993 Honda Civic got better gas millage than these new cars today. Also the first hybrid, Honda Insight had around 60 mpg on the highway. Why such low fuel efficiency today. We can do much better. Is this a result of the oil and auto industry in bed together?

    these are the best mpg’s? this is pathetic. while europe has many cars from honda, toyota and volkwagon that achieve more than 50MPG, volkswagon getting 75mpg on a diesel. it just shows how messed up it is

    Honda had the 1992 Civic VX that got 60mpg with a 1.5 liter gas engine.
