Hyundai Tucson Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2010 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.4L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD I used to own a 2008 Scion xB and I would usually fill up every 6 days. My commute has not changed since buying the Tucson (neither has the size of the fuel tank as it is the same as my old Scion.) Now I fill up every 7 to 9 days depending.
2010 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.4L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD In Canada the government offers a $1500 rebate due to the fuel economy rating.
2007 4dr SUV 140-hp 2.0L I4 5-sp manual FWD 10.4 L/100km with 45000km
2006 4dr SUV 173-hp 2.7L V6 4-sp shiftable automatic AWD I average 23 city and 27 jighway with regular trips of 250 + miles to see my grand daughter
Hyundai Tucson Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2006 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.4L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Poor fuel economy for a 2L 4cyl. averages no better than the 6cyl.
2006 4dr SUV 176-hp 2.4L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Disappointed. Purchased 4 cyl looking for good economy. It differed insignificantly from my 6 cyl Pathfinder in combined city/hwy driving.
2005 4dr SUV 173-hp 2.7L V6 4-sp shiftable automatic AWD poor highway mileage
