2011 Hyundai Sonata: This Sucker Has Serious Range

August 10, 2010


That's the trip meter on our Sonata after a run from Vail, Colorado to St. George, Utah. Not bad, especially considering that I was averaging around 75-80mph most of the time with the A/C on.

That, and I still had a gallon or two left as the miles-to-empty meter said I had another 60-70 miles to go before running dry.

It took 15.3 gallons of regular gas to go that far. That works out to 34.1mpg, a solid number for a midsize sedan going that fast. I'm guessing that with an average speed in the 65mph range the Sonata would easily pull high-30s and go over 600 miles on a tank.
