Most Economical Large Cars

Below are the top 10 most economical large cars sorted by combined MPG.

This size class is going to see an influx of new hybrids over the coming years and no doubt they will be up near the top of the list. For now though the top 10 is dominated by regular gasoline engine cars from Asia. The Sonata and the Accord top the list thanks to a combination of the smallest engines and only 4 cylinders.

The city MPG really lets these cars down, most only managing high teens, but if you don't drive in the city, these large cars can still offer you excellent MPG, in the high 20's and low 30's.
