There isn’t a van that comes close to matching being the best in gas mileage vehicles for a minivan like the Mazda Mazda5. This is the most fuel efficient giving you 21 mpg in the city and up to 28 mpg on the highway. This van is sporty looking and the front and second row seats are very comfortable and provide reclining features. This cabin in this van is noisy on the highway and the cargo space is very limited.
The next best thing in the best gas mileage vehicles in the minivan class is the Kia Rondo. This van can provide up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway, just under what the Mazda5 offers. The seating and capacity of the cargo is very spacious and there are a ton of neat features of the van. The downside is that it is not very stylish and the interior is very cheap. You can opt for a third row seat but it does not come with the van and is a tight fit when in the van.
Mini-vans are important for people who have a large family but need the best gas mileage vehicles they can find. The two best for gas include the Rondo and the Mazda5. The space seems to be compromised in the two vehicles to make them more lightweight for the gas benefit. Mini-vans are a better solution if you are taking a road trip and need the trip to be as affordable as possible. Full size vans won’t get near the gas mileage on the highway or in the city, but they provide the luxury.
