7. 2012 Kia Sorento EX
Combined miles per gallon: 26.6
The Sorento's mileage is ample for the price, but so is just about everything else about it. Not only does the Sorento have the largest passenger cabin of its similarly sized competitors, but its 37-cubic-foot maximum cargo volume is cavernous for a midsize SUV. Features such as a 10-speaker sound system and rear camera display only sweeten the deal.
