2012 Hyundai Genesis: 18/28 mpg (V-6); 16/25 mpg (4.6); 16/25 mpg (5.0)
figures are impressive given this vehicle's size and available power
Though it's a large luxury sedan, the 2012 Hyundai Genesis has surprisingly good fuel-economy figures with its base engine. However, it also comes in more powerful V-8 editions, and those models aren't quite as efficient.
The base Genesis 3.8 is outfitted with a 333-horsepower V-6. It's rated by the EPA at 18/28 mpg, as good as some large front-drive sedans. It's an improvement over the 2011 version by as much as 2 mpg on the highway cycle.
The 385-horsepower Genesis 4.6 earns an EPA rating of 16/25 mpg, up slightly from last year. It also benefits from the Genesis' new eight-speed automatic transmission, as does the 429-hp R-Spec sedan, which is rated at 16/25 mpg.
Unlike most other luxury vehicles, the Genesis doesn't require premium gasoline. If it's used, it yields a few more horsepower, but likely won't affect fuel economy.
NOTE: The Genesis sedan is among those Hyundai vehicles included in a restatement of fuel-economy figures. From the 2011 to the 2013 model year, the EPA has calculated that many Hyundai vehicles had overstated gas-mileage ratings that did not hold up to confirmation testing performed by the agency. Owners will receive reimbursements for extra fuel used, and can initiate payment through Hyundai's site, www.hyundaimpginfo.com.
The 2012 Hyundai Genesis isn't particularly green, but its V-6 edition earns good highway fuel economy numbers.
