1. Lexus RX450h 32/28/30

It should come as no surprise that the Lexus RX450h claims the number one spot on our list. It’s also the only hybrid crossover here, and thanks to its electric motors and fuel-friendly 3.5-liter V6, the RX450h can get 30 mpg combined. Even more impressive is the crossover’s 32 mpg in city driving, a situation where the car’s two (or three in AWD models) electric motors are a huge help. Of course, even though the Lexus sits at the top of this list, it also has the highest MSRP, coming in at $45,910.

    Hard to believe that RX is as good as it gets. Amazing what a good city MPG number does to the overall score.

    how could anyone be dumb enough to buy a front-wheel drive wannabe SUV. idiots exclaim over the high mpg which is only available with the front-wheel drive. my 2011 subaru outback averages 30mpg and can go anywhere. these other vehicles are useless off road. watch youtube videos if you dont believe me. a total investment of $25k for mine, makes the others seem absurd.

     So… you honestly think crossover buyers care about off-roading?

  • Arturo Lopez

     EPA estimates for the 2011 subie are at 22/29, and the 2013 mazda are at 25/31 for the under-25k-AWD, I wouldn’t call that absurd. Subaru AWD is great and all, but I don’t see any major complaints from Mazda’s AWD.

    The Juke gas mileage is a lie.  I had one and just got rid of it.  No matter how much I babied it, I couldn’t get better than high 25′s on the highway – and sub-20 in the city. So, in reality it wouldn’t even be on this list if people know its true capabilities

    Where do you buy your fuel?  I’ve noticed the mileage may vary  — a lot — depending on how much non-gasoline is in one’s “gas”

    Is there an easier way to save fuel. The world’s first multi-vitamin for any car and it’s called EnviroTabs. This is a super thing, because the price is not high, but the real savings!
