Best fuel economy for 2016 VW models
If there’s one good thing we can say about fall and winter, it’s that the gas prices drop dramatically. The summer season seems to get everyone out and driving about as there are plenty of events to attend, but it can be hard on those who have a long daily commute. If you’re looking to upgrade from an old car and you have your eye on Volkswagen, you may be wondering about which 2016 VW models offer the best fuel economy.
Which Volkswagen models save the most on gas?
Diesel models are officially out of the lineup, which leaves you with plenty of gasoline-fueled options and a handful of others. Obviously, the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf is your best bet, getting an estimated mpg-equivalent rating in the triple digits, but with a relatively short range and somewhat narrow network of charging stations, VW isn’t offering it outside of the east and west coast. You’ll see it tops our chart for accuracy, but the most fuel-efficient vehicle in our inventory at Napleton Volkswagen Springfield is the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, and the standard 2016 VW Jetta is the most efficient gasoline model. Check out the chart below to see where your desired model falls.
|VW Model||Highway Fuel Efficiency|
|e-Golf||105 Hwy MPG|
|Jetta Hybrid||48 Hwy MPG|
|Jetta 1.4L and 1.8T||40 Hwy MPG|
|Passat 1.8T/Passat R-Line||38 Hwy MPG|
|Jetta 1.8T Sport||37 Hwy MPG|
|Golf 1.8T (2-door and 4-door)||37 Hwy MPG|
|Golf SportWagen 1.8T||36 Hwy MPG|
|Golf GTI 2.0T||34 Hwy MPG|
|Beetle/Beetle Convertible 1.8T||34 Hwy MPG|
|Jetta GLI 2.0T||33 Hwy MPG|
|CC/ CC R-Line 2.0T||32 Hwy MPG|
|Golf R||31 Hwy MPG|
|Beetle/Beetle Convertible R-Line 2.0T||31 Hwy MPG|
|Eos 2.0T||30 Hwy MPG|
|Tiguan||26 Hwy MPG|
|Touareg||23 Hwy MPG|
As you can see, every car in the lineup has a highway mpg rating that breaks the 30 mark, though the SUVs fall slightly behind. If you’re driving an older vehicle, this could present some clear savings. Just how much depends on your make and model, but if this is a deciding factor when it comes to upgrading you can always use our fuel savings calculate to get a better idea.
