Hyundai Elantra Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD After the first 10K miles, the AVERAGE MPG has risen from the low 20's to the high 20's on my average commute, but is nowhere near the advertised efficiencies. NOT a happy camper with this!
2013 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD I have over 1,100 miles on the car as of today. My first long trip of450 miles yielded an average of 38.6 mpg. I am consistently seeing over 33 mpg in city driving. This is as good as advertised.
2012 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp manual FWD Impressed with fuel mileage, and I'm getting better than touted. Couldn't do that with the last car, unless I could find pure gas (no ethanol). With the Elantra I'm getting 40 mpg mixed driving with ethanol.
2011 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Consistant 35 MPG with mixed HWY and City
2011 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Over 35 mpg, even on backroads
2010 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD I get about 30 mpg mixed driving which I consider pretty good
2010 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD We average about 31 mpg.
2009 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD not bad
2009 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD I keep fueling record and I get 36 miles per gallons so far ever since i purchased this vehicle.
2008 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD 2008 Elantra SE is rated at 24/33 and, so far, I am averaging 25-28.8 mpg in around-town driving.
Hyundai Elantra Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp manual FWD Just don't seem to be able to hit any of the gas mileage reported amounts. 10 to 15 litres per 100 KM seems to be the norm with combined city and highway driving. Dealer keeps telling me I need to "break" the vehicle in to get good gas mileage. Range odometer doesn't reset to 591 kms on fuel ups either. Takes several fill ups before it seems to work correctly for a while. Dealer can't find any issues with it.
2012 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD This is one of the most disappointing aspects of the 2012. The Active Eco is no longer anautomatic feature, and I've found I don't get the great gas mileage that I used to. I would consistently get 40mpg highway, and about 30 mpg in the city. Now I get 32 highway, 28 city. My parents live an hour and a half away, and I have other family living further away. I find it frustrating that I don't get the great mileage I did previously, especially since gas prices just keep going up.
2009 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Engine is 132HP PZEV, not 138 SULEV. Diff in power seems smal but is significant for this car. Mileage worse AND power is less. Unfortunately, states dictate what you can get; CA emissions rule for PA = stupid cop-out/liberal cave-in to greenie-weenies
2005 4dr Sedan 148-hp 1.8L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Not nearly on par with the competition.
