Crossover | Going Green
The up and down pricing on gasoline has some consumers shopping for cars that squeeze the most miles from a gallon while others could not care less. Still others are deeply concerned about the environmental impact their car may have. You can get a good handle on it all using an average of the EPA city-highway projected mileage numbers.

Jeep PatriotMPG: 23 city/28 highway

View: slideshow
While Jeeps have had a reputation for less-than-stellar gas mileage, that's not the case with its Patriot crossover. The base front-wheel-drive model's 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission has an EPA-estimated 23 city/27 highway mpg. The 172-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine gets an estimated 23 city/28 highway mpg when it is paired with the five-speed manual transmission, in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive versions.

View: slideshow
Larger than many other compact crossovers, the Nissan Rogue seats five and offers about 29 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat. All Nissan Rogues come with a 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission, which does not require the driver to shift, though steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters are available. EPA estimated gas mileage on front-wheel-drive models is 22 city/27 highway mpg, while all-wheel-drive models get an estimated 21 city/26 highway mpg. Go »
Honda CR-VMPG: 20 city/27 highway

View: slideshow
The Honda CR-V is one of the most well-established vehicles in the crossover segment and remains largely unchanged for the 2010 model year. Introduced as a 1997 model, the CR-V is powered by a 166-horsepower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that gets 20 city/27 highway for front-wheel-drive models and 20 city/26 highway for four-wheel-drive models. With seating for five, the Honda CR-V offers a choice of cloth or leather seats and a generous 35.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. Go »
