Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient SUVs

Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient SUVs

4. Mazda CX-5 2WD - 29 MPG Combined

The Mazda CX-5 with its SkyActiv technology lands it on our list thanks to its 29 MPG combined rating. Priced from $22,190, the compact crossover SUV comes equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as standard that gets it 26 MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway in front-wheel-drive form. Those figures drop slightly if you’re opting for an automatic transmission, getting you the same MPG in the city but 32 MPG on the highway. All-wheel-drive owners will see 25 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. The 2.0-liter powerplant is good for 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque.

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

  • The Final Say

    Good thing you let us know.

  • Mac1977

    Good thing you pointed it out.

    Good thing.

  • ColumWood

    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!
