fuel economy a 'big selling point'
Autoblog



The Tucson was one of the first vehicles to benefit from the focus on gas mileage, and though it hasn't gained any more miles per gallon since it was new in 2010, it's still competitive with the other leaders in the subcompact-crossover class.

The base Tucson is rated by the EPA at 22/29 mpg, for its combination of a 2.0-liter four and a six-speed automatic gearbox. With a rarely seen five-speed manual transmission instead of the automatic, the same engine delivers 20/26 mpg.

With the larger, more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder, the Tucson gets 21/29 mpg (manual) or 21/30 mpg (automatic). Adding all-wheel drive drops those numbers by 1 to 3 mpg.

Hyundai says it's been able to improve fuel economy by reworking all of its vehicles with lighter construction techniques, and by improving all of its powertrains.

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. Our corrected figures include a mix of updated EPA numbers and figures provided by the EPA for 4WD manual-transmission models that have not yet been retested. Owners will receive reimbursements for extra fuel used, and can initiate payment through Hyundai's site, www.hyundaimpginfo.com.

Conclusion

Gas mileage is good for the class, though the Tucson isn't quite as good as Hyundai's best sedans.

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.
