Fuel Economy

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.

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.

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.
