All about econ­omy

Some cheap and fru­gal SUVs

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - CONTENTS -

Tra­di­tion­ally speak­ing, SUVs were ex­pen­sive to buy and cost a for­tune to run. But times have changed. Sure, large SUVs are still ex­pen­sive (more ex­pen­sive than ever, in fact), but they’re a whole lot more eco­nom­i­cal to run. Even a mas­sive lux­ury SUV with a huge engine uses sub­stan­tially less fuel than it once did. And then there’s the rise of the mod­ern cross­over. Thanks to this seg­ment, SUV own­er­ship is now much more at­tain­able for the Av­er­age Joe. Th­ese ve­hi­cles typ­i­cally aren’t as large and ca­pa­ble as a ‘proper’ SUV, but they are af­ford­able, eco­nom­i­cal, ver­sa­tile and fash­ion­able. For a lot of peo­ple, a cross­over is all the SUV they’ll ever need, es­pe­cially if they care about pur­chase price and fuel econ­omy. Here are six sec­ond-hand crossovers that are amaz­ingly cheap to run.
