6. 2015 Lexus NX300h
The all-new Lexus NX300h is the one and only crossover on our list, and it only barely made it in terms of fuel economy. Powering this crossover is a 2.5-liter engine and an electric motor that combine to produce 194 horsepower. Sure, it doesn’t have much power and its 9.1-secon 0-to-60-mph time is a bit sluggish, but its 35 mpg city is what most buyers are looking for. Unfortunately, the 300h suffers on the highway, as it can only deliver 31 mpg there.
The standard features on the 2015 NX300h are decent, as it comes with 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, NuLuxe seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter, a seven-inch display, a rearview camera, and an eight-speaker audio system. Pricing on the NX 300h isn’t overly outrageous, as it starts out at $39,720, and it has plenty of options to load it up with premium features.
