2012 Hyundai Veracruz AWD: 16/21 mpg
EPA




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.

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.

 

Conclusion

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

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.
