Top 10 frugal 4x4s

Top 10 frugal 4x4s in UK

Jeff Lim's note: Only 1,2,7 and 10 were on sale in Malaysia.  Note that ALL of them were Diesel Powered. Still waiting for EURO4 to enable the importation of Modern Diesels.

You might want a 4x4 to keep you on the road this winter, but you don't want the sky-high running costs that tend to follow.

45mpg+ cars with four-wheel drive

Average MPG:50.2

3 Volkswagen Tiguan
The Tiguan's car-like dynamics and smart, versatile cabin make it a classy crossover that's well worth considering.
