What Car?'s True MPG tests show what fuel economy you can really expect from a car. Here, we reveal the best-performing prestige SUVs we've ever tested...

Long-term Alfa Romeo Stelvio front

4. Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2.2D 210

True MPG 37.5mpg

If your top priority is a plush interior, the Stelvio is best avoided, because it features too many lightweight plastics. But if you're more interested in nimble handling, few SUVs will suit you better.

Audi Q5

True MPG 41.0mpg

For a more rounded car that's even easier on fuel than the Stelvio, look no further than the latest Audi Q5. Okay, it's not as much fun in the corners, but it offers more space, a classier interior, a more sophisticated infotainment system and a smoother and quieter four-cylinder diesel engine.

2. DS 4 Crossback 1.2 Puretech 130

DS 4 Crossback

True MPG 42.6mpg

The runner-up spot on this list goes to the DS 4 Crossback, but look past its 42.6 True MPG figure and there's little to recommend it for. Not only is its ride far too stiff, but also its interior feels cheap and it's not very practical.
