When we compare in the first place the SUVs with the domestic cars first there comes a thought that the SUVs are far more than worse with respect to fuel economy. With the advent of better technologies it is not a hard and fast rule that SUVs are bad in the region of fuel economy such is not the case. There are two main types of SUVs which are available in the Market today. Fuel efficient SUVs and Fuel Guzzler SUVs.

Basically SUVs are not meant for Mileage; they are sport cars. They are mainly meant for performance, speed and more speed. Today due to restriction on Carbon emissions and due to increasing competition in the market with the changing trend of people to environmental protection has given birth to Fuel Efficient SUVs. This is a major change which has taken place in the field of SUVs. Still only a few SUVs can meet the fuel standards which are maintained by other vehicles. Many of the SUV models have more weight. Speed and have less fuel efficiency when compared with other cars.

So many companies like Saturn, Ford and Toyota have engineered a golden mid way out of these crises. They have created hybrid SUVs. These cars are called hybrid since they can run on Electricity too. This Hybrid or dual nature of these vehicles is instrumental in increasing their fuel efficiency. Approximately the mileage of these vehicles is approximately twenty six miles per gallon. The best cars in this category belong to the companies like Saturn, Ford and Toyota. They are more useful for towns and cities since they are made for mixed driving. The names of these vehicles according to the companies are as follows:

Saturn Green line, Ford Escape, Lexus RX and even Toyota Highlander these vehicles are the best in this regard. This allows these SUV vehicles to be used by families.

There are three varieties of SUVs they come in market first are the varieties which are built on passenger car basis, second type of SUVs are built on the line of truck chassis and the third and the last type of SUVs are the built on the lines of Rovers. The examples of each of these types of Sport vehicles are as follows:

Examples for first type is Toyota Highlander

Example for second type is Ford Excursion

And the third type consists of Range rover and land rover vehicles.

These models vary in size, weight, utility and mileage. The four cylinder engine is definitely higher on average.

Let us consider the best Mileage SUV Vehicles:

The best fuel mileage SUVs are small in number comparatively but are there in the market. The features of these SUVs are having a four cylinder, and two wheel drive. The examples of these types of SUVs are Toyota RAVA, Saturn Vue, Honda CR-V, Ford escape, Mazda Tribute, and Toyota Highlander. These are the few examples of Fuel efficient SUVs.

Some of the SUVs are worst in fuel Efficiency - - with examples being the Mercedes-Benz G500 and even the land rovers which struggle to crack even fourteen miles per gallon. Most of the SUVs are of this type they also offer less room and comfort.

So you are bound to get different varieties and a range of SUVs in the Market which will be either on par with other vehicles or can be of such caliber that even comparison between them and the other type of Vehicles is not possible. This means that they are not bad but they carved a different Niche for themselves in the market.
