Fuel economy is a topic that is on most people’s minds, especially with gas hikes at every corner. Perhaps the 1% who can afford anything, everything, and more, do not really need to spend much time on the subject. However, for the majority who live with a budget, no matter their annual salary, fuel economy resides as a fundamental matter when purchasing a new vehicle. Car manufacturers from all ranks are beginning to acknowledge this fact and have started engineering models that are appealing and fuel-efficient. Many are quick to suggest that sports cars cannot be both, however, speed-gurus like Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche have proven otherwise.
Although the luxury car market is still predominantly made up of gas-guzzling vehicles, there are quite a few hybrids on the rise, some of which can take on the fastest rides while priding themselves over sufficient fuel economy. Sure, they may not be as efficient as a Toyota Prius, but it is a good start, especially in comparison to other cars of similar ranking. So why not save on rocketing gas prices and make a few more ‘green’ decisions, without cutting back too much on speed and thrill? Here are some of the most fuel-efficient luxury cars that are paying attention to the needs of long-term mileage.
