Which INFINITI Has the Best MPG & How to Improve Yours
Fuel efficiency is an important consideration whenever you’re looking to buy a new vehicle. However, you don’t have to sacrifice fuel efficiency to get a premium, upscale vehicle. Many INFINITI models combine performance and fuel efficiency with luxury features, so you don’t have to choose between them.
Which INFINITI Model Has the Best MPG?
2022 INFINITI Q50
The 2022 INFINITI Q50 Is Infinity’s entry-level luxury car. Despite being a standard sedan option, the Infinity Q50 isn’t lacking in performance features or style. With this model, you can expect to get around 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. Under the hood, you’ll find a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission, which you can combine with either rear- or all-wheel drive. This is a strong option to consider if you’re looking for an affordable sports sedan that’s great on gas.
2022 INFINITI Q60
For a two-door sports-coupe, consider the 2022 INFINITI Q60. This model is rated up to 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. With excellent fuel efficiency, you’ll also get a 3.0-liter V-6 engine and a powertrain that can take you from 0 to 60 mph in about 6 seconds. The Infinity Q60 has a luxurious, hi-tech interior, meaning you’ll likely enjoy even your longest drives in the INFINITI Q60.
2022 INFINITI QX50
The 2022 INFINITI QX50 is a compact SUV that provides an estimated 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. This makes the Infinity QX50 a superb fuel-efficient vehicle, especially considering it’s an SUV. Other benefits of the QX50 include a spacious interior for both driver and passengers, a strong 268-horsepower engine, and a hi-tech infotainment system for all your entertainment needs.
2022 INFINITI QX60
The 2022 INFINITI QX60 is a midsize crossover SUV that comes with great fuel efficiency. With the Infinity QX60, you can expect an estimated 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The QX60 is powered by a 295-horsepower engine and includes a spacious cargo area and a decent towing capacity, making this a vehicle your whole family will enjoy.
The 2022 INFINITI Qx80 is one of the larger vehicles offered by INFINITI. This three-row SUV has a fuel efficiency rating of 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. If you decide to get this SUV with four-wheel drive, expect the mpg ratings to dip slightly for both city and highway. Either way, this is great fuel efficiency for an SUV with a 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V-8 engine.
How To Improve Your Fuel Efficiency
Below are a few simple tips to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, whether you’re driving an INFINITI or another vehicle model.
Perform Regular Maintenance
Regular maintenance is one of the best ways to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. The air filter is an essential component in your vehicle. It prevents dust and other debris from entering the engine. However, as the air filter becomes clogged over time, the engine needs to work harder, which results in your vehicle using more gas. Simple maintenance tasks such as replacing the air filter and spark plugs can improve fuel efficiency. If you haven’t brought your vehicle in for maintenance in a while, now is the perfect time to schedule an appointment.
Your vehicle uses gas as long as it’s on, even if you’re not driving. This means you’re using gas even as you’re idling. If you can, try to avoid idling whenever possible. Instead, turn off your vehicle while you wait, then turn it back on when you’re ready to drive. This is especially important if you plan on idling for an extended period of time. On hot weather days, consider keeping the car turned off until the temperature becomes too uncomfortable, then turn the car back on until the interior of the car cools off.
Drive at a Steady Pace
Your driving habits can also impact your fuel efficiency. Vehicles that drive at a steady pace consume fuel more efficiently than those that stop or accelerate suddenly. Cars are at their most efficient around 45 to 50 mph. Keep your vehicle around the speed limit when driving on the highway to preserve fuel. It’s also a good idea to use cruise control, as this will prevent you from accelerating too often. Finally, when you need to stop, try to come to a slow stop rather than suddenly, as the increased workload on the brakes can reduce efficiency.
Reduce Vehicle Weight
Vehicles that weigh less are more fuel efficient. Small vehicles have better fuel efficiency ratings than trucks and SUVs. While you can’t do too much to alter the weight of your vehicle, there are a few small things you can do. For example, you can remove any extra clutter you may have, such as heavy bags, books, sports equipment, etc., in your trunk or backseat. You can also remove exterior storage items, like back racks, to reduce the weight even further. While it may not seem like much, remembering to remove your clutter can help improve your fuel efficiency in the long run.
Check Your Tires
The last thing you can do is check your tires regularly. When tires wear down, they don’t grip the road’s surface well. This reduces their efficiency, which in turn causes your vehicle to work harder and use more gas. At the same time, worn-down vehicles don’t stop as well either, adding extra pressure to your brakes and using more fuel. Make it a habit to regularly inspect your tires to ensure they have enough tread. To make your tires last longer, ensure they’re properly inflated and rotate them every few thousand miles.
