2012 Buick LaCrosse

Fuel Economy: 25 mpg city / 36 mpg highway

The luxurious LaCrosse offers eAssist, which includes a small electric motor, additional battery pack, as well as the stop/start system in this large sedan as standard equipment on the base model car. While this system is more advanced than some stop/start technology, the end result is a much less noticeable on/off rumble of the engine and an extremely smooth ride.

2012 Kia Soul Eco

Fuel Economy: 29 mpg city / 36 mpg highway

An inexpensive highway hauler, the Soul Eco may not be the best running stop/start system on the road, but it’s one of the least expensive. Kia is regrouping after harsh criticism befell the Eco’s stop/start system, and promises to improve the system and still deliver its high mileage.
