A few decades ago, you could either choose between an economical, basic runabout or a larger truck with the fuel-efficiency of a boat. Rarely could you get both in one package. Fortunately, times have changed and there are a number of modern SUVs that offer space, pace, and thrifty fuel consumption in equal measure.
Our reviews uncover the pros and cons of each vehicle so that you know exactly what you’re spending your money on. Where fuel-efficiency is concerned, you can find out about each SUV’s official economy numbers, how far they’ll be able to travel on a full tank of gas, and how their economy matches up to the competition.
Our ranking of the most economical SUVs is a carefully considered one, taking into account aspects that may not be top of mind for the average buyer. Even if economy is your main priority, you’ll also want to know about available safety features, build quality, warranty coverage, and ride/handling. Our experienced team addresses all of these categories to help you with your decision.
