Top 13 Crossovers With the Best Highway Fuel Economy for 2013


Long freeway commutes to and from work are more than just tedious; they are also capable of striking a blow to your finances at the gas pump. Drivers who find themselves in this situation often realize that a vehicle's gas mileage makes all the difference in the world, and that the mileage figure that matters most is highway fuel economy. Excellent highway mileage can go a long way to diminish the financial impact of those endless freeway slogs.

The 13 picks that follow (our list is longer than the usual 10 due to ties) are the crossovers with the best highway fuel economy for 2013. As you'd expect, most of the choices on our list tend to be smaller vehicles. You'll find an abundance of compact SUVs, such as the BMW X1, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5 and the Nissan Juke.

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 electric vehicles were excluded 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.

    This article would be more useful if it gave real world fuel economy. I remember the long term Terrain never got anywhere near its 32 mpg highway even when you were consciously trying to achieve it.

    I've always been able to beat EPA ratings with every vehicle I've owned, and that includes older ones before EPA changed the ratings method. It all depends on the driver and conditions - mountains, speed, weather, acceleration etc. Posting "real world" is more inaccurate than EPA estimates. Never trust a website that pounds cars for a living to give safe estimates for real world figures.
