The Most Fuel-Efficient Vehicles of 2023

Autosphere » Fleet » The Most Fuel-Efficient Vehicles of 2023

Before buying a vehicle, it is now almost unavoidable to check its fuel consumption.

At the beginning of each year, around February, Natural Resources Canada publishes its “Fuel Consumption Guide”.

The content of the report is highly indicative of the pressure exerted by government policies and the market for manufacturers to offer vehicles that consume less and less fuel.

This year, out of 830 models and versions, 200 have a combined fuel consumption rating of less than 10L per 100 km; this includes cars and SUVs as well as pickup trucks and vans.

A majority under 10L and 12L

In fact, it is astonishing to note that 88% of the 2023 vehicles are below 12L/100 km, a category that includes only 94 models, the top of which is not topped by the 26L Bugatti.

Under 10L, all Mazda, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Volvo are there, followed by Alfa Romeo, Hyundai, Kia, Toyota and VW, as well as, to a lesser extent, Audi, BMW, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Subaru.

On the SUV side, Mistubishi and Fiat have the upper hand, with all their vehicles also from this group, and a good proportion of Alfa Romeo, Buick, Fiat, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Subaru, Toyota and Volvo

Also in the SUV family is the Jaguar F-Pace P250, as well as the Maserati Grecale GT and Modena.

The most fuel-efficient

Although not highlighted in Natural Resources Canada’s annual “Fuel Consumption Guide”, the department also lists the most fuel-efficient vehicles.

In addition to this list, there are tables showing the number of vehicles with an average fuel consumption of less than 10L/100 km by brand, as well as a complete list of their 2023 vehicles.

Hybrids, plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles will be covered in another article.
