    Default Most Fuel Efficient SUV's and Pick-ups 2011

    Eight of the most fuel-efficient SUVs and pickup trucks in the Philippines - Feature Articles | TopGear.com.ph

    what do you think guys?! Or is this not reliable? I'm surprised by their numbers on the FXT, CX7 and Tucson BTW.

    top gear attributes/cites the source of the test results

    it is up to the readers to pass judgment on the credibility of the testers

    The Tucson 2.0 is really economical. My cousin's just broke in, and he's getting fantastic mileage.

    The CX7 is good. Not great... but considering it's a 2.5 liter engine, very very good, nonetheless. This is thanks to the lower friction of the 2.5 MZR engine compared to the old 2.3 and the six speed gearbox. 18 km/l might be possible, given the long cruising gear and the torque converter lock-up (a la Santa Fe and Veracruz), but I'd like to double-test that myself. It's definitely better than many engines of the same size.

    The CR-V, exceptional... incredible. Especially considering the interior and cargo space.

    ASX, no comment yet, haven't done a long-term test.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    A CX-7 2.5 gas gets 18.17 km/l, while a Tucson 2.0 CRDi clocks in 9.5 km/l... go figure.

    Di mo pwede i-ask si foresterx about personal claims coz he doesn't own a forester xt. Forester X 2.0L N/A sakanya not Forester XT 2.5L Forced Induction

    Kung DOE test yung sa CX7, possible. Dapat. Mga 17-18 din yung Tucson CRDi sa DOE style drive.

    In my driving, exact same trip and conditions, 7.5 kml CX7, 8.5 kml Tucson.

    4WD kasi yung Tucson R-eVGT tsaka masyado masarap pahatawin

    Kidding aside, 9.8km/L na average ko ngayon. City driving below 2200RPM.

    Yup. Masyadong masarap.

    That was a mountain-climbing trip. The CX7 gets close because it has a good gearbox, a low-friction engine and 2WD. The Tucson, on the other hand, has a very heavy iron-block engine and AWD... so it's compromised while climbing.

    On the highway or in city traffic, the difference will definitely be bigger.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
