This year, very fuel-efficient for the class include the Land Rover LR4 (Discovery 4), Porsche’s Cayenne, the Acura MDX, BMW X5, Audi Q5, Chevy Tahoe Hybrid and the Volkswagon’s Touareg Hybrid. But the most fuel efficient of all is the Land Range Rover, scoring a solid 84 on combined reviews and as a close second, the Ford Flex, at 82.

First, this is a pretty tough category to classify in. Motorscore lists 76 vehicles here. Fuel efficiency can vary from year-to-year on makes and models, so this best-of should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt—or at least a shot of tequila, which is better for you anyway.

So why does the premiums SUV Land Range Rover stun? It gives reviewers the chills for its legendary off-road performance and car-like road manners and good grip—despite what is actually poor mileage, at 12 mpg city and 18 highway. It touts a good grip, Obviously, with such poor fuel economy if this ranks best in class it’s for many other reasons.

Among the myriad ways it excites are its off-roading chops and fluid handling on city roads as well. It “delivers an airy ride similar to a Rolls-Royce’s”, according to a reviewer with The 27.6-gallon tank on this 5,891-pound sucker is big enough to get you from fill-up to fill-ups.

The $31,000 Ford Flex, which clocks 18 mpg city and 25 highway, is a step up in the fuel-efficiency category while offering a real kick on the road. Ecoboost acceleration provides a real rush, while the vehicle proves that crossovers don’t need to put one to sleep. The 2013 Flex sports the MyFord touch interface, which snags a 10 of 10 from The Car Connection. Ditto, this honey’s safety on the road, securing one hundred percent ratings as well. It has a chic, utilitarian look and supportive seats, even if the third row is hard for adults to access and climate controls seem superfluous.

If you want to make an environmentally-friendly choice, try the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid. For around $49,590 to $54,775, it doesn’t come cheap but you’ll get great fuel economy (20 mpg city/23 highway) and acceleration as well as enviable towing capacity. What you won’t get—headaches. Tahoe Hybrid made the Bluetooth standard in 2009, while other regular features include satellite radio, navigation, tri-zone climate control, backup camera, Bose stereo and heated leather seats.
