Ford Escape Hybrid

Fuel economy: 34 city/31 highway mpg

While there are a few hybrid SUVs, it's the Ford Escape Hybrid (about $29,900) that stands out in terms of fuel efficiency. Powered by a 155-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine and paired with an electric motor that's mated with a continuously variable transmission, the Escape Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 34 city/31 highway mpg as a front-wheel-drive model and 30 city/27 highway mpg in its all-wheel-drive configuration.

Standard features of this five-seater include cruise control, audio system with a six-disc CD changer, capless refueling system, side-impact and side-curtain air bags, antilock brakes and electronic stability control with rollover sensors.
