I am going to be looking for a 2014 compact SUV. I currently have a 2011 AWD Ford Escape Limited 6 cyl. My question is, what is(are) the best 2014 AWD compact SUV(s) with the best combination of acceleration and good gas mileage that run on regular gas? I notice that a number of the new SUV's like the Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape, Mitsubishi Outlander, etc. recommend(require) premium fuel on those engines (all 4 cyl now) with the highest hp/turbo engines. I don't see the sense of paying an additional couple of thousand up front for some turbo charged engine which will require paying an additional 20-25 cents per gallon for premium fuel to get the acceleration and mileage they claim. However, I don't want to have less acceleration than I'm getting now with my 2011 6 cyl Ford Escape. Does such an animal exist? Thanks.

Have you considered Volkswagen Tiguan.

The Tiguan has the same engine as the GTI.  It will outperform most 6 cyl. SUVs, and give you 27-31 MPG highway.  Plus, the best safety rating in its class, great handling, and comfort.
