So huge gas guzzlers have become malignantly taboo, why as Americans haven’t we been offered better options for curbing our consumption, here is a quick look at what’s available globally in the hunt for better mpgs
Toyota Urban Cruiser
Euro version of the Scion XD has a combined mileage of 52.8 U.S mpg, the AWD version gets 48
Global versions of the Qashqai make 56 U.S mpg compared to North American versions that only deliver 26 mpg!!! Diesel fuel is a major cause of the discrepancy, but a 30 mpg difference is borderline insane.
Volkswagon Blue Motion TDI Passat Wagon
Kids to soccer, groceries, long jaunts to the beach? No worries the TDI Passat makes an obscene 65.4 U.S mpg. The Passat is actually manufactured in Amerika and shipped overseas
All of these vehicles are banned by the Federal government citing safety concerns, but it certainly feels more sinister than that… so yea...
