TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Hyundai Sonata

Hyundai Sonata Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
In fuel economy as well the 2013 Hyundai Sonata has lost an earlier lead. EPA ratings of 24 mpg city, 35 highway, impressive two years ago, can't match the 2014 Mazda6's 26/38 or the 2013 Altima's 27/38 today. The trip computer reported about 25 in my regular suburban driving, a bit over 30 if I engaged in some mild hypermiling, and about 34 on the highway. When mildly hypermiling the Altima for a few miles its trip computer average approached 40. While trip computers aren't always accurate, others have also reported impressive fuel economy from the Altima. The Mazda has a smaller edge, but an edge nonetheless. see full Hyundai Sonata review

With just over 1400 miles so far, it is averaging 28.3mpg combined with the eco option turned off. It has the eco drive option which works well in sustained at speed driving but lags in demanding driving situations. see full Hyundai Sonata review
2013 4dr Sedan 198-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The fuel economy is pretty good for a car of this size. I have averaged 36.5mpg (imperial gallon) over the last 37000km. 85% highway, 110km/h and little sitting in traffic. It gets very cold here sometimes so the mileage suffers. In Dec/Jan when it reaches -30 C (or colder), I get about 33mpg and in the summer about 40mpg. My best was 44mpg in the summer and worst was 31mpg in mid-winter when the car was new and not broken in. I keep track of the mileage with an app on my cell phone so the numbers above are exact. see full Hyundai Sonata review

Dreadful fuel economy. For long highway drives, the Sonata Turbo can indeed match the 34 mpg EPA rating, but for city driving with A/C, you'll be lucky to get any more than 17 mpg. Even with A/C off, the urban mileage never hits the 20 mpg level. Only 2,700 miles on the engine so far, so this may get better, but the EPA city estimate seems to be pegged too high by Hyundai. see full Hyundai Sonata review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai Genesis Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
2009 While competitors have been switching to relatively small turbocharged engines, the Genesis continues to rely on larger normally aspirated ones. Even the base car's 3.8-liter V6 is nearly twice the size of the Audi's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Also, Hyundai doesn't yet offer automatic stop/start. The most significant impact: the Genesis gets much worse fuel economy. With two-wheel drive, the A6 2.0T scored 24 mpg city, 35 mpg highway in the EPA's tests, the Genesis 3.8 only 18/29. Add all-wheel drive, and the Audi's ratings fall to 22/32, the Hyundai's to 16/25, not good. Hyundai has developed a new turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 to replace the 3.8, but it isn't clear how soon this new, more efficient and more powerful engine will be available in the Genesis G80. It won't be available when the car arrives this summer, so most likely the 2018 model year. According to the trip computer, my real-world fuel economy was well above the EPA figures. Only when I drove the Genesis fairly aggressively did the trip computer average fall below 20 mpg. On my usual suburban route it averaged around 23 mpg, and on a 70-mph highway it averaged about 30 mpg. The former was still a few mpg short of the Audi, but the latter was at least as good. If the trip computer is accurate, the fuel economy of the Genesis isn't nearly as dismal as the EPA ratings indicate. see full Hyundai Genesis review

This is my second Genesis. First one was a 2010 4.6L and this has the 6 cyl and it is nearly as quick but gets better fuel mileage. I get in the high 20's on the highway.

Others say they are getting the 18 to 24 MPG claimed. I find that when I do 80% "suburban driving" (strip malls, lights, in/out of car, etc), I get 16 at best. When I am doing 80 on the highway w/ cruise control, I get 23-26. see full Hyundai Genesis review
