March 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

Large and mid size sport utility vehicles are perfect choices for those wanting a strong and reliable hauler. But with the cost of fuel skyrocketing at an all time high, drivers want vehicles that are fuel efficient as well. The BMW X-5, Mercedes Benz GL-Class and Honda Pilot offer the best gas mileage for their respective auto class.

The German made BMW X-5 is known in the market to not only be one of the sportiest SUVs, but also a very agile and versatile family hauler. The selling price of the X-5 starts from $45, 638 to $61,357. As a larger vehicle that offers great gas mileage, this BMW can get drivers as far as 14 miles for a gallon of fuel on city driving, and 20 miles per gallon for highway driving. Although the X-5 is not recommended for off-road handling and usage as it is more of a crossover vehicle, auto reviewers praise the X-5 for its sturdy, quality exterior that matches its exceptional driving performance. Its luxurious interior is also well approved.

Another European automobile manufacturer that is superior in making fuel efficient this kind of large and mid size vehicle is Mercedes Benz. Their model, the Mercedes Benz GL-class sells at a much higher price than their European competition the X-5 at $58, 773. With additional features, this price can shoot up to $81, 066. With its much more expensive market price, the GL only offers drivers 13 miles of coverage per gallon of fuel for city driving and 18 miles per gallon for highway driving, however it has other features to offer. Critics like the vehicle's high quality interior that guarantees the driver and passengers a comfortable ride. Just like the X-5, the GL-Class is not recommended for off-road handling.

Among a bevy of European SUVs, this Japanese model stands out, and not only because of its sheer mammoth size. The market price of the Honda Pilot starts from an affordable $27, 921 to the reasonable $39, 707. Auto experts and reviewers applaud the Pilot for bringing one of the best fuel consumptions with a V6 engine. The Pilot can get coverage of 18 miles per gallon of fuel for city driving and 25 miles per gallon for highway driving. Another reason why the Pilot is approved is due to its spacious second and third rows of seating and its four sets of connectors for child seats. All in all, this Honda is a very practical driving machine at a reasonable price.

Even with the growing conscience to lower fuel consumption, drivers need not sacrifice performance and practicality with these large and mid size sport utility vehicles.
