Most Fuel Efficient Mercedes-Benz Sport-Utility Vehicle

The most fuel efficient Mercedes-Benz SUV for 2016 is the Mercedes-Benz GLA250. Even when compared to competing brands, the GLA offers excellent efficiency without sacrificing interior comfort. On the other end of the spectrum, the G-Class has the lowest efficiency measurement at 11 MPG in the city.

Largest Gas Tank

It comes as no surprise that the GL-Class has the largest gas tank, but it is somewhat surprising to find it is only .9 gallons larger than the new GLE. These large gas tanks may sound expensive but they can carry either of these SUVs for more than 500 miles in the right conditions.

Required Fuel for Mercedes-Benz

All Mercedes-Benz SUVs require premium gasoline for unleaded models and diesel fuel #2 or B5 biodiesel fuel for diesel models. The reason premium is required for all models is that Mercedes-Benz vehicles use high-performance engines, not just for power output, but also for efficiency. The engines have higher compression ratios, prompting a need for a more stable gasoline. Putting in regular unleaded gas could cause engine knock, so if you accidentally put the wrong fuel in, don’t be like this guy. Just top off your tank with premium as soon as you can.
