Top 10 Most Fuel-Efficient Non-Hybrid Family Sedans

Top 10 Most Fuel-Efficient Non-Hybrid Family Sedans

3. 2015 Nissan Altima: 2.5-Liter, CVT – 27/38/31

Driving away with a bronze medal in this Top 10 is Nissan’s jack-of-all-trades Altima. The brand’s longstanding sedan saves drivers money at the pump thanks to its efficient four-cylinder engine and energy-sparing continuously variable transmission.

The car’s 2.5-liter ‘banger delivers 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. With a CVT automatically adjusting ratios the Altima delivers 27 miles per gallon in the city and 38 on the “interst8;” combined it should return 31 MPG.

If drivers prefer, Nissan also offers a dramatically more muscular 3.5-liter V6 engine. It delivers 270 hp with 251 lb-ft. Naturally fuel economy is significantly reduced; this version averages just 26 MPG.

    I’ll still take the Accord. Best damn family sedan you can buy.

    Get out of here with that Accord. The Passat is the best and this list just proves it!

    Mazda 6. The best and it still has a pulse.

    Can we please have these lists on pages that at least have a third of the list on one page? This click-count BS has gone WAY too far. I never get to the end of them.

    When each click only gets me ONE piece of information, I really don’t care how much money you make off the ads. I bail quickly. Please stop. The writer and the content deserve more respect than that.
