28 mpg city, 38 highway for all models
U.S. EPA





The 2011 Hyundai Elantra comes with official EPA fuel economy ratings of 28 mpg city, 38 highway across the entire model line. Several other models on the market, such as the Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Fiesta, achieve 40 mpg or better, but only in one specific trim. Most, like the Elantra, sit in the 38-mpg range. Considering that most of a vehicles lifetime carbon footprint is related to fuel use, that makes the Elantra a very green car.

In an aggressive drive route that took an editor up into mountains, skirting 5,000 feet elevation at times, a test Elantra registered 26 mpg; then driven on a mostly level stretch of Interstate at 65-70 mph we managed to average 39 mpg—so at first test the Elantra's figure looks easily attained with the cruise control on a relatively level highway.

NOTE: The 2011-2013 Elantra lineup was found to have overstated fuel-economy numbers. Hyundai initially claimed up to 40 mpg highway for some models, but after a consumer campaign alleged lower real-world economy, the EPA ran a confirmation check of the Elantra lineup and of several other Hyundai and Kia vehicles. The tests resulted in restated fuel economy numbers for all involved model years. Owners can register with Hyundai to receive reimbursement for the gas consumed above and beyond expected levels; more details are found at HyundaiMPGInfo.com.

Conclusion

All trims of the 2011 Hyundai Elantra come with a 38-mpg highway rating.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
