Top 11 Crossovers and SUVs With the Best Highway Fuel Economy for 2014


ADVERTISEMENT

For many drivers, freeway travel comprises the lion's share of their time spent behind the wheel. In cases like this, strong gas mileage can save money, and the mileage figure that's most important is highway fuel economy. For car shoppers who log lots of freeway miles, choosing a vehicle with excellent highway mileage can go a long way toward reducing the amount spent each month on gas.

The 11 picks that follow (our list is longer than the usual 10 due to ties) are the crossovers and SUVs with the best highway fuel economy for 2014. Size plays a role in fuel economy: Our list is dominated by compact crossovers like the Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape.

Some vehicles come with a choice of powertrains and each vehicle's ranking is based on the fuel economy of the powertrain that does best at the pump. Note that we have excluded electric vehicles since their limited range makes them impractical choices for many shoppers. Our rankings are based on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) miles-per-gallon ratings for highway travel.
