#10: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

  • MPG: 14
  • Engine type: gasoline
  • Car type: four-wheel drive, SUV
  • Fuel cost per year: $4,300
  • Sticker price/base model: $60,895

Land Rovers are known for being extremely capable sports utility vehicles. Perhaps the power and size necessary to maintain this reputation explains their placement on this list. ConsumerReports.org reports poor acceleration, a stiff ride and poor fuel economy, explained in part by its heavy weight. It costs $7.12 to drive this Land Rover 25 miles, and its mileage is as low as 12 mpg when driving in a city. The EPA calculates that a visit to the gas station will cost $83 to fill its 23-gallon tank. Like many SUVs, the Range Rover Sport compromises fuel economy for more power and tank-like safety features, such as a highly rigid body and a low center of gravity.
