2011 Acura RL Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The 2011 Acura RL comes with fuel economy ratings (17 mpg city, 24 highway) that are about average relative to other large luxury sedans.

There are quite a few non-luxury sedans that offer the same space but much better fuel economy--upward of 30 mpg on the highway or better. Those cars include the Hyundai Sonata, Chevrolet Malibu, and Buick LaCrosse.

The 2011 Acura RL is somewhat thirsty for its size, but respectable to other luxury models.

On a 250-mile test, which was a mix of suburban detail intermixed with highway drives, we managed 22 mpg combined, which was on par for the big V-6 and its EPA ratings of 17/24 mpg.
