Kia Models with the Best Fuel EconomyJun 17th, 2022
When purchasing a new vehicle, there is a lot to consider. Those considerations depend on your
lifestyle and driving needs, whether you need all-wheel drive, want a crossover, the type of
powertrain you’re after, horsepower, and many other factors. With gas prices soaring to record
highs these days, the fuel economy on a vehicle is one of the most important reasons to buy a
new car or trade your existing one in. There is no better place to start looking for a fuel-efficient
vehicle than a Kia dealership. Kia is known for many things, including the incredible gas
mileage the vehicles get.
Most Fuel-Efficient Kia Vehicles
The Kia K5 (formerly the Kia Optima) base model K5 LX with front-wheel drive (FWD), which
comes standard with a turbo-charged 1.6-litre engine, is the best in the group, offering 29 mpg on
city roads and up to 38 mpg on the highway. The next best trim for gas mileage is the LX5 and
GT line, but unfortunately, when you move into an all-wheel drive (AWD), the mpg drops to
around 29 on the highway.
The stylish Kia Soul with FWD and a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine provides drives with 25 mpg in
the city and 31 mpg during highway driving. This subcompact SUV has impressive fuel
economy ratings and is also the most affordable Kia model.
Out of the entire Kia lineup, the Kia Rio is considered the most fuel-efficient gas-powered Kia
vehicle, getting 33 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. Available in a sedan or
hatchback with a 1.6-litre engine and 120 horsepower, this is a great choice for drivers looking to
cut down on fuel costs.
Of course, the most fuel-efficient vehicles are not fully gas engines, such as plug-in hybrid,
hybrid, and fully electric vehicles. For these alternatives to full gas, Kia has the Kia Niro, Kia
Sorento Hybrid, Kia Sportage, and Kia Forte. To learn more about the Kia vehicles with the best
