The list of high consumption cars sorts all new models according to the highest consumption of fuel. We can call them worst mpg cars either. But first we should know that, what makes a car consume more fuel than others.
Starting with engine size and power, high performance of a vehicle is related to high fuel consumption. To produce more power, engine needs more intake of air and fuel. In the list it is easy to find out sports cars consume the most. Secondly, the weight of the vehicle has a big effect on consuming a lot of fuel. Heavy SUV’s with petrol engines are just monsters, made for consuming high amount of fuel.
Why people prefer high consumption cars then? There is only one good explanation for that question and it is the performance. No one wants a family car that has low mileage. “A car with low mileage” doesn’t always mean that it has high performance. Sometimes cars that haven’t been maintained for a long time consumes more fuel than it should. That does not end up with giving extra performance, it only causes high CO2 emissions.
