SUV Comparison

Fuel Efficient Suv

SUVs can be described in one word: versatility. Sports Utility Vehicles, or more popularly known as SUVs, present its customers with all kinds of vehicular opportunities. And this has been the main cause why the SUV line has been the most competitive of any type of vehicle in the market.

As useful and flexible as they are, SUVs have been criticized mostly by environmentalists as gas-guzzlers; they lack efficient yet eco-friendly fuel economy devices that can help in cutting down the usual consumption of gas and at the same time, be a lot more healthier for the environment. And in an age where fuel efficient cars have become so popular in line with gas mileage by car, a change in the SUV lines that we have today is very much needed.

Through recent breakthroughs, car companies have broken away from the gas-guzzler trends as they have provided more fuel efficient SUV’s.

2010 Toyota Rav4 

Surprisingly on this list, the 2010 Rav4 probably has one of the best gas mileage of any SUV in the market. With the front-wheel drive version having 22mpg city/28 mpg highway according to the EPA, the Rav4 has been quite efficient when it comes to paved roads.

2010 Subaru Outback Wagon

When it comes to crossover SUVs, expect this one to deliver. This versatile vehicle will give you the most MPG that any all-wheel drive SUV can ever provide you, as it draws a lot of attention when it comes to its gas mileage. Truly, it isn’t as efficient as other SUVs. But if you look at what you can get from this crossover, you will see that you can save more with an Outback compared to other SUVs.

2011 Mitsubishi ASX

Mitsubishi has been known to produce cars that use up a lot of gas. But with the new 2011 Mitsubishi ASX, expect a change in this trend. This SUV has a smaller engine size yet it has enough power to accommodate four-wheel or even two-wheel drive. With a fuel-efficient 2.0 litre petrol engine, the Mitsubishi ASX is one of the most fuel efficient SUV that you will find.
