28 mpg city, 40 highway (manual); 29/38 (DCT auto)

our foot-to-the-floor driving style yielded a not-very-impressive 25 mpg average
Car and Driver

The 2012 Hyundai Veloster is rakish, sporty vehicle, but it doubles in purpose as one that's not only quite versatile but also very fuel-efficient. And with tall gearing and six-speed transmissions, the Veloster is set up for good gas mileage.

In brief early testing, we saw about 32 mpg overall in nearly 120 miles in a DCT car, then about 30 mpg over about 80 miles in a manual car—in both cases including some very enthusiastic driving and steep hills.

Official ratings have changed since the 2012 Veloster was new. It's one of a set of vehicles found to have overstated fuel-economy numbers, an issue uncovered in a routine confirmation test by the EPA. Initially, the Veloster was rated at 28 mpg city, 40 highway for the manual version, while the dual-clutch automatic was pegged at 29/38 mpg, both with a 32-mpg EPA Combined figure.

Upon testing, the EPA has now rated the Veloster at 27/37 mpg for the manual, or 31 mpg combined; it's 27/35 mpg or 30 mpg combined with the automatic.

Owners can register with Hyundai to receive reimbursement for the gas consumed above and beyond expected levels; more details are found at HyundaiMPGInfo.com.

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.
