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

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. see full Hyundai Tucson review

Disappointed. Purchased 4 cyl looking for good economy. It differed insignificantly from my 6 cyl Pathfinder in combined city/hwy driving. see full Hyundai Tucson review
