Small SUV with good gas mileage?
I'm looking for a small SUV with good gas mileage. Any recommendations? I'm leaning towards a Honda CR-V or a Toyota Rav-4. What's better? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

not exactly a suv, but a baby suv:
---suzuki jimny, daihatsu terios, toyota rav-4 (starting by 1,3 liters)
the smallest (the smaller the more efficient) and with less operation costs---
or next step (middle class of suv)
suzuki vitara or sx, and all big ones of ford/mazda, the nissan...etc bz 1,8 to 2,5 liters;
in general all over 2,5 liters engine-suvs exceed in terms of reasonable consumptions for normal mainly urban and weekend outdoor use; make sure 2wd option is available for economic normal street use;
for mainly outdoor use, get pick ups in the best texan tradition: simple, rough and tough (what you save in buying price you spend in little more gas or in cool design optionals optionals for elegant city eyecatching); (but are pick ups good for ladies? any pink one??? :) ) coolest pick up: mitsubishi L200 the new and the former model;
personally among the twos, you gobble in mind, i definitely suggest the toyota rav-4 (similar in technology to daihatsu terios, but nicer design);
honda cr-v is not really a suv, but a urban crossover;
alternatives are the cheap koreans kia sorento has a smooth tasty design (got from mercedes M) and hyundai santa fe (not exactly beautiful);
ps: like risks? try the very exotic indian ones (cheap and ugly: tata, mahindra and maruti)...good luck...
pps: wonna be among the first in town with alternative gas? look for who adjusts your engine for biofuel (by soia) (easy to use on diesel engines) or real gas-fuel (metan);

Either a Toyota Rav4, Jeep Patriot, Jeep Compass, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape, Chevy Equinox, or Honda CR-V.

Jeep Patriot or Compass both have decent gas mileage
at 30 miles to the gallon. Of course, I dont know the gas
mileage of the two you are looking at, but I do know that
the Jeeps are less expensive.
