Best Gas Mileage SUVs


The problem with making a list of the best gas mileage SUV’s is that for the main part, they are all very similar, and that there are many different categories of SUV; compact, mid-size, full size, luxury, performance … and of course, they are all going to give different results.

We should also factor in the Volkswagen factor; manufacturers test MPG figures under the most ideal conditions, perhaps maybe even ‘massage’ those figures a little. In the real world, hitting those expected MPG figures can be difficult.
