Luxury Cars That Get 32 MPG Or Better

The idea behind the new Imperial is to take Chryslers 300 sedan, keep the philosophy and the proportions, change the sheet-metal and make the wheelbase longer. The Imperial would be a premium sedan above the 300 and would compete with Cadillacs top-end sedans. The 300C is an upscale sedan, but its base price is limited to $34,000 because the down-market, regular 300 sells for $10,000 less. The Imperial would have no such handicap. But any future American luxury cars may have tough roads ahead of them.

In Pictures: 10 MostFuel-FrugalLuxuryCars. But luxury car buyers dont necessarily have to choose a hybrid or electric-powered vehicle to get top fuel economy these days. Three out of the top 10 highest mileage luxury cars are conventionally powered, including the Audi A6 and the BMW 328i and 528i models, which are all rated just a few mpg lower than many of the hybrids on our list. In fact most of the remaining luxury cars that get 30 mpg or better on the highway pack gasoline powertrains tweaked for maximum mileage, with exceptions including the Porsche Panamera Hybrid and the diesel-powered Mercedes-Benz S350 Bluetec.

Are Luxury Cars Really Worth It?

Ford Fusion or Lincoln MKZ? Honda Civic or Acura ILX? Deciding whether the luxury upgrades to automakers’ base line-up can be difficult. As automakers offer more and more luxurious upgrades to their standard line-up, it begs the question of whether upgrading to the higher-end model is worth the money anymore.

All I can take away from this is Audi doesn’t think highly of Americans. But we’re discounting the fact that the TT-RS is actually a very good car. And the turbocharged inline-five sounds awesome.
