2015 Hyundai Sonata: Fuel Economy Update for April - City Miles Drop Our Combined Average
May 13, 2015
It was a rather uneventful month for our 2015 Hyundai Sonata. We only added around 500 miles to its odometer and most of those were in town. As a result, it turned in one of its least-efficient tanks so far at just 17.5 miles per gallon. That dropped its overall average to 24.7 mpg, which is well below its rated number in combined driving.
So it didn't impress much in terms of its mileage, but it did impress in other ways. Editor-in-Chief Scott Oldham found several reasons to like our Sonata, while our staff in general liked it enough to give it an "A" rating, at least for the 2.0-liter turbo and Eco models. Our Sport model with the standard engine only earned a "B". Check the ratings pages for full explanations.
