For some people, even a long commute in rush-hour traffic won't make them give up driving a sport utility vehicle. SUVs are larger than cars on the road, which means they are going to require more gas to get from point A to point B. That can be hard on your wallet.
But not all SUVs are created equal. There are those that have gas mileage that rivals some of the sedans on the market. One that falls into that category is the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, which boasts mileage of 25 mpg on city streets and 33 mpg on the highway.
It's not the good gas mileage alone that makes this SUV a smart choice for people with tough commutes. The Crosstrek is packed with interior technology, including Bluetooth, HD Radio and voice-activated GPS navigation that will let you forget, if only for a few minutes, that you are in standstill traffic. If you're sick of staring at the cars in front of you, open the power tilt/sliding moonroof and glimpse up at the sky.
