fuel economy a 'big selling point'
Autoblog



Hyundai has made vast improvements to the gas mileage of its fleet over the past several year, and the 2012 Tucson certainly does its part.

The base Tucson now comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and automatic transmission, and is rated at 22/29 mpg by the EPA. With a five-speed manual transmission, the same engine delivers 20/26 mpg. With the larger, 2.4-liter four-cylinder the Tucson gets 21/29 mpg (manual) or 21/30 (automatic). Adding all-wheel drive drops those numbers by 1 to 3 mpg.

NOTE: The Tucson 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.

Conclusion

The 2012 Hyundai Tucson is one of the more efficient vehicles in its class, although its gas mileage isn't as good as Hyundai's mid-size Sonata sedan.

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.
