What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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
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.
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.

2008 4dr SUV 242-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
not bad for an SUV, but still expensive to fill its large tank. Goes about 600 km on a tank, at $1.20/L (in Canada) costs $80
2008 4dr SUV 242-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
got less MPG than the Escape
2007 4dr SUV 185-horsepower 2.7L V6
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Expected better than 20mpg
2007 4dr SUV 242-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Not bad for its class, but certainly not a fuel sipper.
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.
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.
