• Introduction


    So you want a high-up driving position and high safety levels. Perhaps you want a roomy back seat for the kids or baby but also want room for them to grow. Maybe, just maybe, you want to venture off road. Regardless of why you want a Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV), or cute-ute, gas mileage probably figures pretty highly on your list of a CUV's benefits.

    We took a look at the generally excellent mileage figures of the most popular crossovers on the market today, and saw how they stacked up. Here are ten of these crossovers that, in addition to being solid all-around vehicles, won't inflict too much pain at the pump.
