Are mid engine or rear engine cars more efficient than front engine?

    There is no clear evidence that rear or mid-engine vehicles are more efficient and every layout comes with its own inefficiencies. Rear engine vehicles put the engine beyond the wheel base which disrupts the cars overall balance and makes it less stable. Mid-engine cars are the most stable though the location of the engine cuts down on rear passenger space. Most mid-engine cars are 2 seaters. Additionally, mid-engine cars tend to get hotter inside the car, encouraging more AC use. Front engine cars have the benefit of being easily air cooled and while they are slightly less balanced then the mid-engine vehicles, the engine is still within the wheel base and affords some degree of stability.
