2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Fuel Economy Update for November

December 05, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe continues to rack up the miles. We've driven it over 11,000 miles since it joined our fleet in June, including an additional 1,100 in November. And the crossover's fuel economy continues to impress.

The EPA estimates the Santa Fe's combined fuel economy at 20 mpg. So far we are averaging 19.5 over 11,000 miles of driving. However, load up this six-passenger vehicle with people and things and drive it around in city traffic and it gets real thirsty real fast. Recently we did just that and averaged just 14.1 mpg over a 190 miles worth of driving.

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 miles
Current Odometer: 11,032 miles
