2012 Volkswagen Eos: 21/31 mpg (manual); 22/30 mpg (auto)
The Volkswagen Eos originally offered a choice of a turbocharged four-cylinder or a six, but the latter has been trimmed from the lineup; it's really for the better, too, as the 2.0T engine returns excellent fuel economy considering the Eos' missions of open-air thrills, practicality, and a premium feel.The four-cylinder produces great EPA ratings for the Eos, one of the few four-seat convertibles that gets fuel economy of more than 30 mpg. The manual-transmission models earn 21/31 mpg, while versions that shift via the automatic transmission have an EPA rating of 22/30 mpg.
Overall, the Eos beats the smaller, lighter Mazda Miata two-seat roadster for fuel economy--and that makes the Eos one of the greenest convertible picks of all.
If miles per gallon are the priority, and you want a convertible with four seats, you won't do any better than the 2013 VW Eos.
