It's a common misconception that you need to drive a sport utility vehicle to get more space for rear-seat passengers or even cargo. Unless you opt for one of the largest SUVs on the market, there are some great fuel-efficient cars that beat driving a large gas-guzzling SUV.
Here are five vehicle options to suit different needs that also have good fuel economy. Our choices seat anywhere from five to seven occupants and provide substantial cargo space. So, whether you need to tote the tots and their gear, load up at the local home improvement store or travel with another couple on a weekend road trip, one of these cars will suit your needs without breaking your budget.
