What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai Elantra Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I have over 1,100 miles on the car as of today. My first long trip of 450 miles yielded an average of 38.6 mpg. I am consistently seeing over 33 mpg in city driving. This is as good as advertised. see full Hyundai Elantra review
2013 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed 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! see full Hyundai Elantra review
2012 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed 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. see full Hyundai Elantra review

Hyundai Elantra Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed 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. see full Hyundai Elantra review
2012 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 1.8L I4
6-speed 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. see full Hyundai Elantra review

4-speed 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 see full Hyundai Elantra review

Not nearly on par with the competition. see full Hyundai Elantra review
