The sport utility vehicle market has grown rapidly in recent years, as SUVs increasingly offer features that are competitive with car models, such as outstanding fuel efficiency.
Gasoline costs are an ongoing expense drivers will have to pay over the duration of a vehicle’s life, which equates to countless savings for those who own fuel-efficient models—and countless extra costs for those who don’t.
Save money over the long haul with a fuel-economical automobile. For some of the best gas mileage SUVs currently on the road, look no further than the Honda brand.
When it comes to fuel efficiency, the impressive 2016 Honda CR-V is a stylish SUV that knows how to stretch your fuel dollars.
CR-V 2WD models achieve gas mileage of an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, and 29 combined mpg,* while the CR-V AWD models deliver an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 27 combined mpg.*
Beneath the hood of the CR-V is a 2.4L direct-injection, In-Line 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and this exceptional SUV also provides gas mileage–enhancing features such as Eco Assist, a drive-by-wire throttle system, and an available real-time AWD with Intelligent Control system.
The 2016 Honda Pilot is a highly popular SUV that offers the prime amenities and capabilities drivers are looking for. One of the Pilot’s outstanding assets is its impressive fuel economy.
