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

2013 4dr Sedan 198-horsepower 2.4L I4

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 Tucson

Hyundai Tucson Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
The redesign improved the Hyundai Tucson's fuel economy, but not by enough to rank it near the leaders. With the SE's 2.0-liter engine and six-speed automatic transmission, the Tucson rates 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with front-wheel drive and just 21/26 with all-wheel drive. Stepping up to the turbo 1.6-liter engine and seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission improves these ratings to 25/30 with FWD and 24/28 with AWD. Alas, even though it has a larger, 2.5-liter engine the Mazda CX-5 achieves 26/33 with FWD and 24/30 with AWD. And the Honda CR-V, with a 2.4-liter engine, leads the class: 27/34 with FWD and 26/33 with AWD. Even with its uplevel engine the new Tucson doesn't approach these figures, especially not on the highway. The best suburban trip computer average I observed in a Tucson SE with FWD was 32 mpg. Decent, especially compared to the previous generation of compact crossovers, but others within the latest crop can travel at least a few more miles per gallon. see full Hyundai Tucson review
