Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Crossovers

Ford Escape Makes the List



Quote:
10. Jeep Patriot 23/29/25

Crossovers have pretty much taken over the Sport Utility Vehicle market, thanks to lower prices, better fuel efficiency and the handling that comes part-in-parcel with being based on a car platform versus truck architecture. Additionally, many crossovers boast the same off-road capabilities as SUVs while offering improved safety and the high driving position that SUV buyers like. With fuel economy becoming an important priority to new car buyers, we decided to put together a top 10 list of the most efficient new or updated crossovers. It might be a bit odd to see a Jeep on a list about crossovers, but the Patriot here is based on the same platform as the old Dodge Caliber. The Patriot trades some of Jeep’s traditional off-road capability for better fuel efficiency. Using the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, the Patriot is able to get an EPA tested 29 MPG on the highway and 23 MPG in the city. The combined number is a frugal 25 mpg, which is enough to place the Patriot right at number 10 on our list. Other crossovers that make that benchmark include the Chevrolet Equinox, and Kia Sorento, which are slightly bigger than the Patriot we see here.
