Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient SUVs

July 5, 2012

Fuel efficiency is on every car shopper's mind right now. While SUVs have historically been known as gas guzzlers, there are a few that actually get decent gas mileage.

Edmunds.com this week gathered a list of the top 10 SUVs (including crossovers) with the best combined gas mileage using the EPA's miles-per-gallon rating for city and highway travel.

The Ford Escape Hybrid leads the pack with a combined MPG of 32. Check out the rest of the list and make sure these are vehicles you're considering if shopping for an SUV.

To find out the lowest prices you can get on these vehicles, I recommend you try the CarWoo Deal Finder

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
