2012 Toyota Avalon (23 mpg combined)
The Toyota Avalon is a large car that leans more towards comfort than engine performance. While the downside of this is a less-than-exhilarating ride, the upside is fairly good fuel figures. The EPA estimates drivers will get 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. These numbers are courtesy of a 3.5-liter V6 that manages 268 horsepower. Beyond its comfortable interior, the Avalon is also lauded for impeccable safety, strong reliability and good resale values. Base models start at $33,195, which may be a little expensive for some shoppers. However, you'll get a lot for that price, including leather seats, foglights, sunroof, automatic headlights, back-up camera, wood trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, nine-speaker stereo and more.
