Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient SUVs

2. Lexus RX 450h FWD - 30 MPG Combined

If you’re shopping for luxury, then the Lexus RX 450h should be at the top of your list. Priced from $47,320, the RX 450h is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to an electric motor helping provide a total system output of 295 hp. The result is a luxury SUV that gets 32 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway, good for a 30 MPG combined rating. Note that if you’re shopping for the all-wheel-drive variant, prepare to lose a bit of fuel efficiency in the city, as the RX 450h AWD gets a 30 MPG city, 28 MPG highway rating.

    Not one SUV made the list. These are all CUVs. There is a difference.

    Good thing you let us know.

  • Mac1977

    Good thing you pointed it out.

    Good thing.

    Good point. It’s technically number 1 but we chose to leave it off the list as it’s ultra low volume.

    It’s too bad that image has rendered the public leery of the much more practical minivan, in favor of the SUV. Funny how, in eschewing the body-on-frame design of earlier generations, and adopting the construction of the minivan, the SUV has become even more the thing. I drive a Toyota Sienna, which seats 8, is extremely comfortable, only costs $30 to fill up, only costs $25/month to insure (thanks to Insurance Panda), and outperforms most SUVs on safety tests…. I love my Sienna and wish people with families would start considering minivans more than SUVs.

    It is sad when ‘mom vans’ and glorified ‘hatchbacks’ are considered SUV’s…. Show us some proper SUV’s with some actual fuel economy stats!
