3. Mazda CX-5 26/35/29

When creating the CX-5 crossover, Mazda went to the drawing board to create a vehicle that was fun to drive, yet fuel efficient. This is  the SkyActiv philosophy that is helping the CX-5 get noticed. By using all the SkyActiv Technologies and lightweight materials the CX-5 can get one of the best EPA rated mpg numbers on this list. 26/35 mpg city/highway equals about 29 mpg combined, and that number should be achievable in both manual or automatic transmission. The CX-5 also tops sits atop our list with the best high-way fuel rating.

    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?

     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!
