Top 10 Most Fuel-Efficient SUVs and Crossovers of 2010


SUVs and crossovers offer more room and versatility than most sedans. In the past, this superior spaciousness came at the expense of fuel economy, but that's no longer true. These days, there's no shortage of vehicles in this segment that offer decent performance at the pump.

The following 10 vehicles are the most fuel-efficient SUVs and crossovers on the market. Our rankings were generated using the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) miles-per-gallon ratings for city and highway travel. Specifically, we used the EPA's combined fuel-economy formula: 55 percent of city mpg rating plus 45 percent of highway mpg rating. All ratings apply to base models equipped with a CVT or automatic transmission, except where indicated otherwise with an asterisk.
