Mileage Update
By youngblood on


2011 Hyundai Elantra Limited 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Update on mileage: I now have over 6,000 on my 2011 Elantra and mileage numbers have not improved. I'm getting 23-24 mpg on city streets with moderate stop/go traffic (avg speed 26 mph). On the interstate I'm getting 32 mpg at 75 mph and 35-36 mpg at a steady speed of 65 mph. In the warmer fall weather I did get 40 mpg once when driving a steady 55 (with everyone else passing me). The city mpg is the most disappointing as it is not much better than our
larger Nissan Altima. I thought the EPA revised their mileage estimates downward to be more "real world," but it appears they are still inflated.

Best Features

Positives: heated seats are nice in the winter months. Sound system & bluetooth work well, although some larger rear window shelf speakers should be included in the "Limited" model. Controls are logical and easy to use.

Worst Features

On/off switch for daytime running lights. Better quality material for "leather" seats (it feels more like a leather/plastic blend). The wiper blades are very poor - lots of streaking. Not covered by warranty. Hyundai still not even stocking spare tires even for purchase after the sale.

Yup! That's why people have to wait till others (and not fan boys either) get new cars and report their real world mpg.
