Now one full year old GL model
By caperguy on
2013 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
A bit disappointed with the gas mileage as it is not getting what was advertised 13000 miles later.
Drives like a sports car.
Really fun to drive. Good trunk space and spacious backseats.
The front seat passenger seat is too low and only the drivers seat can be elevated as a result the front seat passenger on a sunny day always has to use the sun visor which adds to the blind spot created by the right front windshield pillar.
Also due to the design of the car taller people tend to duck their heads more getting in and out of the vehicle.
The EPA sets the mileage.
Hyundai uses it.
If you're using the MPG calculator in the car and not calculating it manually when you fill it up, you are not getting the real mileage.
The ave. MPG readout in the car is useless.
Mine said (2013 Elantra Ltd) 27 but I've always calc'd it manually after each fill-up and it was 32 mpg city/hwy.
We'll see what happens on a long trip.
