Great in city, good on highway, runs in electrical mode occasionally which is fun. For a 4WD non aerodynamic mini-truck the economy is stellar. see full Ford Escape review

2014 4dr SUV turbocharged 178hp 1.6L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Slightly less fuel mileage than I would have expected from the 1.6 turbo. Currently averaging about 24 in mixed driving. And I am not a lead foot with this car. see full Ford Escape review
2012 4dr SUV 171-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Fuel economy suffers thanks to the need to downshift for even smaller hills and the vehicle's brick-like aerodynamic profile. EPA ratings are 20/28, real-world is closer to 24. see full Ford Escape review
2008 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Surprised by how bad the fuel economy is so far (but have only had a month)... less than 15 mpg for my driving, mostly back and forth to work, 1.5 miles in a small town... but I can live with it because I really love this car. see full Ford Escape review

16-18 MPG in town, old V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee was not much worse. Should get more mileage out of a six. see full Ford Escape review

Knew it was not going to be great with V6. After several fillups averages around 19.4 mile per gal. see full Ford Escape review

Perhaps the 6 speed automatics are better, but the 4 speeds just suck! Not good at all, in my humble opinion, for a vehicle this size. see full Ford Escape review
2002 4dr SUV 201-horsepower 3.0L V6

I averaged about 14 city and 17.5 on trips, which for a vehicle this size is terrible. see full Ford Escape review

2012 4dr SUV turbocharged 194hp 2.2L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual AWD
Date is Sept 30 2013. It has a 2.2 litre diesel engine with manual gearbox. 6th gear is very useful on a long run as it acts as an overdrive. It has travelled 7509 miles at average of 38.42mpg imperial. It will easily exceed 41mpg on a long run. My Kia Sportage diesel travelled 15051 miles and averaged 37.85mpg imperial. Both vehicles were full of luggage for 29% of their mileage. Worst fuel consumption was 32.23mpg over 495 miles, all short runs so no complaints there. Best was 41.47mpg over 523 miles. Kia Sportage best was 48.59mpg and worst was 29.88mpg see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

2008 4dr SUV 242-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I am currently getting an average of 22-23 MPG, mostly city driving in this vehicle. I previously had a Dodge Ram 1500 Quadcab 4x4 which got an average of 11-12 MPG in the same conditions. Gas prices have driven me to change vehicles. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2008 4dr SUV 185-horsepower 2.7L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
We have only filled it up 3 times. Which only gives us two checks of MPG. First was 20.94 and the second was 21.96. With fewer than 1000 miles on the car our MPG could change. The sedan we traded averaged 22.8 so I will be happy if our mileage comes close see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

I drive the Diesel, so it is VERY economical. And here, on Aruba, Diesel is about 18cts per liter cheaper. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2005 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Getting ~ 20MPG using BP regular unleaded from Kroger. Quick Trip in Loganville, GA for some as yet undetermined reason is consistently 1 to 2 MPG less??? Still, this is a far superior fuel economy realized from a full time 4WD SUV over my 96 Durango V-8 see full Hyundai Santa Fe review

Only getting between 22-23 mpg around town on 4 cyl. My previous 6 cyl got 23-24. But the 4 cyl is surprisingly peppy. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2009 4dr SUV 242-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
It is a 3.3L 6 cylinder ( 242HP) engine, driven in mostly city driving....17.7 city MPG is realistic, but not amazing. In general, I would say the Santa Fe is average in fuel economy for a 6 cylinder SUV, but it is not outstanding in this area. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
