January 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

SUVs come in all shapes, sizes, colors and classes, but when you compare all the compacts, luxuries, mid-sizes and crossovers in terms of their fuel efficiency, these three models, the Audi Q5, Mazda Tribute and Ford Escape Hybrid, take top honors.

The most fuel efficient sport utility vehicle is the Audi Q5. This European car sells at a starting price of $35, 200, although the price can go up as high as $42,500 with the installation of additional features. In terms of its fuel efficiency, the Q5 is able to cover 20 miles with a gallon of fuel for urban driving, whereas a drive on the highway with a distance of 27 miles is possible with the same amount of fuel. This vehicle has a seating capacity of up to five adult passengers. With its spacious and comfortable leg room, passengers will not have to feel squeezed in into a narrow space. The Audi also sports the classic, sleek and elegant Audi look, reminiscent of the cool, sophisticated look of a European design. Besides its fuel efficiency, spacious interior and classy exterior, the Q5 is also highly praised for its exceptional driving experience.

Not far behind the Q5 is a SUV from Japanese carmaker Mazda, the Mazda Tribute. This one sells at a starting price of $20, 555, although the price can increase up to $27, 315. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Tribute can easily cover 23 miles in urban driving per gallon, whereas it covers an impressive 28 miles in highway driving per gallon. Overall, the vehicle has a fuel capacity of 17.5 gallon. Another aspect that is praised in the Tribute is its very user-friendly layout and controls, so drivers would not have to fiddle around trying to figure out what each control meant. Its smooth riding experience is also well approved by critics.

The final model is the original hybrid vehicle in the sport utility vehicle category, the 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid. For $27,000 the Escape impressively covers 36 miles per gallon for city driving, and 31 miles per gallon for highway driving. It can also accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in under nine seconds. As the first one in the market, the Escape may have had to face dozens of other competitors, but its smooth and easy driving experience is what makes it a crowd favorite.

SUVs are gaining popularity among car enthusiasts and family drivers alike due to its durability and practicality. Now, added with features that allow them to be fuel efficient, they are going to be a market favorite for a long time.
