For those who want an SUV that’s both spacious and fuel-efficient, this top 10 is for you.

In celebration of Earth Day we take a look at some of the most fuel-efficient sport utility vehicles currently on sale in Canada. Now, we know what you’re thinking. SUVs and environmentally-friendly transportation don’t go together.

A decade ago you would have been right but the proliferation of hybrid and plug-in hybrid sport utility vehicles mean you don’t have to sacrifice efficiency just to get a spacious vehicle.

This list takes into account models that are available right now for sale. With so many new electric and hybrid SUVs on the way, the list will change quickly. In a few months, the fully-electric Audi e-tron will arrive in dealerships (expected in June) joined by the Mercedes-Benz EQC later down the road. The Tesla Model Y is coming, Volkswagen has a ton of new EV models including a couple SUVs like the I.D. Roomz on the way, and there’s also a Ford Escape hybrid and Mazda CX-5 diesel in the pipeline. The Kia Soul EV and Kia Niro EV will be here before the end of the year.

These are all worthy fuel-efficient SUVs you will want to check out if you’re buying a new vehicle in the fall or later. As we said, a list like this is always prone to change but for now, it will have to act as a good starting point if you’re looking for the most fuel-efficient SUV on sale in Canada.

Note: The average fuel consumption number expressed for PHEV vehicles is an average that takes into account fully electric operation.
