Eight Fuel-Sipping SUV Alternatives

CNNMoney.com recently provided their picks for the best vehicles in 2008 that give you "room and utility you need without paying a gas pump penalty." The Saturn Vue Green Line was one of their choices. See what they had to say.

The Vue Green Line has only a "mild hybrid" system used in the Chevrolet Malibu and Saturn Aura hybrid sedans, but here it offers a 6 mpg fuel-economy boost, not just 2, as in the other vehicles. An advantage of the Vue Green Line's hybrid, as compared to full-hybrid systems, is some serious hidden underfloor storage space in the back because there's no huge battery pack. One big downside: Try finding a Saturn Green Line at a dealer near you. So far, GM is producing just a trickle of these crossover SUVs. The good news is that Saturn dealers can't charge any more than the sticker price.
