Expert Quotes:

19 mpg city, 26 highway (four-cyl manual, front-wheel drive); 20/28 (four-cyl auto, FWD); 20/26 (V-6 auto, FWD); 20/25 (four-cyl auto, 4WD); 20/26 (V-6 auto, 4WD)
U.S. EPA





No need to stick with the smaller engine here because you think it's greener, as it's actually not true here: The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe gets roughly the same fuel economy whether you choose the base four-cylinder engine or the available V-6. And if you want all-wheel drive, the V-6 is actually slightly better on gas.

With EPA ratings of either 19 or 20 mpg in the city and 25 to 28 on the highway, the Santa Fe gets numbers that are about on par with other vehicles in this class—or about the same as mid-size V-6 sedans.

Conclusion

The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe is a reasonably green pick in its class, though stepping to a sedan or a slightly smaller crossover will get you better fuel economy.

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.
