2012 Nissan Rogue: 23/28 mpg (FWD), 22/26 mpg (AWD)
A need for better gas mileage is one of the main reasons why shoppers have moved from larger, sometimes truck-based SUVs into smaller ones like the Rogue, and while the Rogue might provide enough of a gain to satisfy those kinds of family shoppers it's not quite frugal enough to be considered one of the green picks.
In its front-wheel-drive form, the Rogue rates at 23/28 mpg; add all-wheel drive, and they drop to 22/26 mpg. In either case, those numbers—especially on the highway—are lower than most other compact crossovers.
The Rogue is quite fuel-efficient, but it's by no means the most frugal vehicle of its type.
