Luxury Can Be Practical
Looking for Great Fuel Economy?
If you’re in the market for your first luxury vehicle, the thought of owning a beautiful new SUV may have crossed your mind. Or, maybe you’re more into the idea of a sport coupe with copious power under the hood – or a full-size luxury sedan. Regardless of what make and model you’re after, the rising price of gas is something to think about when shopping for a luxury vehicle. After all, it’s a major purchase, and being an informed consumer means thinking through how your next car will fit into your life – ideally, for years to come.
But who says driving a beautiful car can’t also be practical? INFINITI is all about designing luxury vehicles for real life. It’s why we created both the QX50 crossover and QX55 crossover coupe – two vehicles that prove an exhilarating ride can also be totally pragmatic. When it comes to luxury crossovers like these, we’ve got a few tips for those looking to get the most out of a full tank.
The 4 Big Factors
What Affects Fuel Economy?
There are a number of things that affect a car’s fuel efficiency. From the vehicle itself to driving habits and conditions, it’s important to have an idea of all the variables, so you can get the most out of each tank. Here are the four main factors that contribute to a vehicle’s fuel consumption.
2. Engine Size and Type
If you’re looking for a luxury vehicle that goes lighter on fuel, you’ll want to consider something with a more compact engine size. That’s because engines with, say, four cylinders are often more efficient than those with six or eight. Offering a standard four-cylinder VC-Turbo engine, QX50 and QX55 both have you covered on that front.
Want to totally optimize engine performance? It’s typically recommended that you use premium gas, which makes sense, since the vast majority of luxury vehicles are designed for it.3
