What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe

2006 Hyundai Santa Fe Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 148hp 2.2L I4 Diesel
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
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

Not bad for its class, but certainly not a fuel sipper. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2007 4dr SUV 242-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Could be better. Wish it had the 6 speed auto instead of the 5speed. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2007 4dr SUV 185-horsepower 2.7L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Should be able to do better than 17 MPG around town with a 2.7L. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
2005 4dr SUV 200-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Horrible fuel economy. If we were in the current gas price age, we would not have bought it. Average around 16 mpg. see full Hyundai Santa Fe review
