Seen posts on best ski car etc.
I think the upcoming Porsche Macan Diesel is going to be hard to beat. Some specs:
- MPG = 45 combined
- 0-60 = 6.1 seconds
- Ground Clearance = 7.8-9.0" (9.0 is with optional air suspension)
- Range per tank = 714 miles
- Price = starting at 45-50K USD
- Estimated Availability in USA = 2015
Let's face it, it's a porsche and it's going to be expenseive, however, if you can live with a stripper (that means no options boys), there's nothing in the market that I'm aware of that even comes close for MPG, performance & AWD.
This will be a smaller SUV, so if you need more room - not the best option
