The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published fuel economy numbers for 2021 model year vehicles, revealing which are the most and which are the least efficient.

Named the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the two-seater class are the Toyota GR Supra 2.0 and BMW Z4 sDrive30i that both use the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and return 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined, impressive figures considering how fun the two sports cars are to drive.

Taking the top spot as the most frugal vehicle in the minicompact class is the Polestar One (45 combined mpg), while the Mini Cooper SE Electric is the most efficient in the subcompact class, returning 108 MPGe. The Toyota Corolla Hybrid (52 mpg) takes the top spot in the compact class, while the Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD and Tesla Model S Performance take out honors in the midsize and large vehicle classes with 134 MPGe combined and 110 MPGe combined respectively. The Volvo V60 AWD PHEV (42 MPG combined) and Volvo V90 FWD (26 mpg combined) take out the small station wagons and midsize station wagon classes.

As for the least efficient vehicles, the limited-run Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport returns 8 mpg city, 13 mpg highway and 10 mpg combined, on par with the 2021 Lamborghini Aventador Coupe and Roadster that both return 8 mpg city, 15 mpg highway and 10 mpg combined. Other vehicles included in the least efficient list of cars include the Bentley Continental GT, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Ghost, Dawn, Wraith, and Cullinan, and the Mercedes-AMG GLA 35, Subaru Impreza Sport 5-Door and Volvo V60 CC AWD.

Right below you can see EPA’s best- and worst-faring cars, as well as the most and least efficient trucks and SUVs.


About a year ago, we reviewed the fourth-generation Mercedes-Benz GLE and found it to be supremely capable in just about everything. The GLE Coupe however is a little less practical than its more conventionally-shaped sibling, so does that make it the inferior choice?

The answer is no. In fact, it really depends on how you view practicality in general, because the GLE Coupe actually has quite a few nice tricks up its sleeve.

Before we get into all that, let’s review the competition really quick, as the large premium SUV coupe segment has really grown in recent years. Apart from the Merc, it includes the BMW X6, Audi Q8, Porsche Cayenne Coupe, Lamborghini Urus (technically), and to some extent, the Range Rover Velar, although the latter is a bit smaller in size.

It’s not easy to find a lot of separation between these nameplates, but there is a case to be made for the GLE Coupe, both against its rivals as well as the regular GLE.

Looks better in person than in photos

Large, imposing vehicles will often imprint their design and dimension onto you much more successfully once you see them in person. The same is true for the GLE Coupe. It’s quite elegant, especially with a toned-down exterior color like the Selenite Grey you see here.

Nailing the moose test is no easy feat for a new car and while you may think smaller vehicles would have a better chance of passing, that’s not always the case.

Sure, quite a few big SUVs and pickups have performed horribly in the past, but there are some large vehicles, such as the Mitsubishi L200, which didn’t do that bad.

Most recently, KM77 put the 2020 Audi A3 Sportback through its paces. In the first attempt, the driver entered the cones at 75 km/h (46 mph), slightly less than the 77 km/h (47.8 mph) needed to pass the test. Despite that, the A3 Sportback understeered massively and took out a number of cones. With the speed lowered to 72 km/h (44 mph), the driver was able to thread the A3 Sportback through the course without taking out any cones.

The current A3 Sportback range was recently updated with the launch of a new 40 TSFI e plug-in hybrid variant. This uses a 1.4-liter TFSI engine rated at 148 hp and 185 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque that’s coupled to an electric motor delivering an additional 107 hp and 243 lb-ft (330 Nm) of torque.

Power is sent to the front wheels courtesy of a six-speed S tronic transmission that allows the car to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 7.6 seconds and continue through to a 141 mph (227 km/h) top speed.
