Fuel Economy / MPG » 7
GREEN | 7 out of 10
20/30 (2.0T, automatic); 21/30 (2.0T, manual); 17/27 (3.8, automatic); 17/26 (3.8, manual)
Automatic-transmission V6 test cars averaged 19.3-20.5 mpg with even city/highway use
You might not expect the aggressively styled 2012 Genesis Coupe to be all that fuel-efficient. But with EPA ratings of 30 mpg highway for both 2.0T models, if you go with the turbo four-cylinder engine you'll get pretty good gas mileage relative to other performance coupes.
At 17/26 or 17/27, V-6 models are quite a bit worse, but about on caliber with V-6-powered sport sedans.
The two V-6 American pony cars, the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, both beat the Genesis Coupe in fuel efficiency, however.
Especially if you go with the 2.0T, the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is reasonably efficient and green.
