The lists below highlight the vehicles, by category, that got the best and worst gas mileage in Consumer Reports’ latest tests. We have selected miles-per-gallon cutoffs that are relative to each category. For example, a vehicle that gets 21 mpg would not be a standout among wagons, but it would be among the highest in the midsized SUV or minivan category.

Click through to each model overview page to find out how the vehicles rate in our road tests, reliability, safety, and more. 

Choose a car type from the drop down list to see the best fuel economy in that category. For groups where there is a significant difference between the best and worst, we have a separate list for the least-efficient models.
