Vehicle size plays a starring role in the fuel consumption. And while it's true that larger, heavier vehicles burn more gas, they also carry more passengers which can be a huge plus for those family and friends trips the beach.
While the Fiat 500 achieves the best mileage, for a two-seat vehicle the amount of fuel needed per person is 1.84 gallons.
When you factor in the 6 passengers that the Chevy Suburban carries, the amount of fuel needed per person drops to only 1.07 gallons, making it a more attractive choice for a group.
Don't forget the FUN FACTOR value! There's nothing quite like the experience of driving a Porsche, regardless of the mpg.
