2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Long-Term Road Test

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Fuel Economy Update for December

January 6, 2014

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Since the last fuel economy update in November, our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe has logged 1,643 miles. In those miles, one of the more notable events was as a Christmas tree hauler. Otherwise, it's been tackling the usual commute and people transport duties without any hassles.

In terms of fuel economy, the Santa Fe has nothing all that new to report. The key data points remain unchanged, and that's a good thing as our 19.5 mpg average is right up there with the EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined rating.

Worst Fill MPG: 14.1
Best Fill MPG: 25.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 19.5
EPA MPG Rating: 20 Combined (18 City/24 Highway)
Best Range: 424.5
Current Odometer: 12,675
