2012 Hyundai Veracruz Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The 2012 Hyundai Veracruz is only available with one powertrain, and an option for all-wheel drive. While it makes the trip to the dealer an easy one, it doesn't help the Veracruz overcome mediocre gas mileage, since there are no options for more efficient driving.

The EPA's gas-mileage ratings for the Veracruz carry over into the 2012 model year, at 17/22 mpg for the front-drive model, and 16/22 mpg for the all-wheel-drive edition.

Gas mileage lags in the not-so-big Veracruz: it's less efficient than some bigger seven-seat crossovers.

Compared to other seven-seat crossovers like the Ford Explorer, the Veracruz falls behind by at least a few miles per gallon on the highway cycle. With the four-cylinder Toyota Highlander, rated at up to 20/25 mpg, the difference is even more stark.
