Vehicle2013 Hyundai Elantra GT PZEV 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewThis is my second Elantra...wow, what a difference.
The other was a 2008 SE. This has more power, ride is much better.
My one is a big difference for the and the wife and I fell in love with lines and the "Red", I mean "Red".
I am looking for better mileage, but I only have 1,800 miles on the clock.
My last car was a 2011 Ford Fiesta W/6-speed trans that need work at 30K, so we traded it for the Elantra GT, even so, when ever I traveled for over 100 miles, I got a min. of 40mpg so where is the 37mpg Hyundai???

In my experience, 32 mpg at 70 mph is about right. Maybe 33. The Elantra GT seems to be unusually susceptible to slurping down fuel when driven hard or driven fast. At 65 mph, you'll get a lot closer to the rated 37 mpg. At 60, probably a shade over 40 mpg. At 55 mph, upper 40s. (These numbers are with cruise control on, on level roads with minimal wind). Also, it only takes a few miles of low-mpg driving to pull down the average mpg.Report it
