Vehicle2013 Hyundai Elantra Limited PZEV 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewThere are a lot to like on the new Elantra 2013 but fuel consumption is certainly not one.
I've always paid attention to the gas mileage I would get on my cars compared to the EPA ratings and I've always notice close proximity among them. In my new Elantra 2013 however, the actual gas mileage on a combined 70% street / 30% highway can not get above 23 mpg. It is way too far from the claimed 29/39/33 EPA ratings. To my disappointment though, the fuel consumption I am getting seems to be pretty much in line with the Consumer Reports testing experiencing 20mpg on city driving.

I agree about the fuel consumption. I consistently get 23.5 miles per gallon. My previous car was a Honda Civic Hybrid and it promised 44 mpg but got 28. For 3 weeks I rented a Sonata, and it only got 18 mpg. So I was mentally prepared for the lower mileage. Overall, however, I love the car. =)Report it
