Fuel efficiency is no laughing matter for real estate agents. The fact is agents regularly log more miles than most any other sales professional. Indeed it’s not unusual to see agents drive as many as 30,000 in one year depending upon where they live. Some have driven more!

Purchasing a new car or SUV is also a pretty serious matter for agents. After all, a vehicle is about more than just getting from point A to point B. It’s part of an agent’s brand, his or her professional image is linked to it. What you drive says something about who you are.

Add to that the need for comfort and, yes, fuel economy, and you have a very important purchase that most real estate agents take very seriously when it comes time for an upgrade.

So, with fuel economy in mind, here are 12 SUVs that will get you from point A to point B in style without running up sky high gas bills in the process.
