Eco-Focused Crossover/SUV All-Season Tires -- Real World Fuel Economy

Monday, August 30, 2010 by Chad Hocker
Tire Rack tested tires from the newer Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category, collecting fuel economy data during our Real World Road Ride -- a test drive on a circuit of highway and county roads near our corporate headquarters in Indiana. The fuel economy results for the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires we tested are shown below.

We had a tie for first with best fuel economy going to the Michelin Latitude Tour HP N1 and Kumho Solus KL21 at 18.3 mpg in our Porsche Cayenne V6 test vehicles.

Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Tires MPG
Kumho Solus KL21
18.3
Michelin Latitude Tour HP N1
18.3
Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season
18.2

This information is based on our team of test drivers completing approximately 500 miles per tire over several days on the same 6.6-mile test loop. I would recommend using this fuel data as a good tire buying tie-breaker since the mileage differences are small and would only result in a difference of a few extra fill-ups every year.

You can read the full test results online shortly.

This was one of the closer fuel economy test results, essentialy all three tires are a dead heat.
