2013 Hyundai Genesis: 18/28 mpg (V-6); 16/25 mpg (V-8)

figures are impressive given this vehicle's size and available power
Consumer Guide

With its mid-level model gone, the gas-mileage story for the 2013 Hyundai Genesis becomes a little clearer for potential buyers.

The base Genesis and its 3.8-liter V-6 gets good fuel economy, especially considering its considerable power (333 horsepower) and its rear-drive architecture. The EPA rates it at 18 miles per gallon on the city cycle, and 28 miles per gallon on the highway cycle--figures that make it almost as efficient as some front-drive sedans like the 2012 Toyota Avalon. Those numbers also represent a fair improvement over the Genesis' base engine from the 2011 model year, mostly due to the adoption of an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The eight-speed automatic transmission is also paired with the 5.0-liter V-8 in the 429-hp Genesis R-Spec sedan, which is rated at 16/25 mpg. Unlike most other luxury vehicles, the Genesis doesn't require premium gasoline. If it's used, it yields a few more horsepower, but likely won't affect fuel economy.

NOTE: The Genesis sedan 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,

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.
