2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG: 14/20 mpg
EPA





It's a supercar...what? You were expecting fantastic fuel economy from a 571-horsepower two-seater?

It's not as terrible as it could be, though. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG--in either body style--is rated at 14/20 mpg by the Environmental Protection Agency. We've seen far worse from Lamborghini, and even the superhero Nissan GT-R barely bests these numbers.

The SLS' clean and green credentials could be issued as early as 2013, however, when Mercedes puts the finishing touches on an all-electric version of the AMG supercar. Benz promises performance equal to that of the gas-powered SLS, but the new "E-Cell" version may have a total driving range of less than 50 miles, if that's the case.

 

Conclusion

Gas mileage is the least of the Mercedes-Benz SLS' worries, but there's some hope for a pure electric model in the works.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
