2012 Lexus ES 350 Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

If you don't have especially green expectations, you'll probably be happy with the 2012 Lexus ES 350; it gets EPA ratings of 19 mpg city, 28 highway, which are pretty typical for this class. 

Actually, the ES 350 is more fuel-efficient than most larger V-6 sedan alternatives, and Lexus has lifted the requirement for premium fuel. But you could do better if going green is the top priority; the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, for instance, offers an interior nearly as large and luxurious, with fuel economy ratings that top 40 mpg; and the Lexus HS 250h, while not all that roomy inside, gets much better mileage.

Unless you're willing to step up to a hybrid, the 2012 Lexus ES 350 is one of the more efficient large-sedan picks.
