2014 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

The 2014 Hyundai Tucson gets two new engines this year; but sadly, that doesn't significantly improve its EPA fuel economy ratings.

The base Tucson is rated by the EPA at 23/29 mpg, for its combination of a 2.0-liter four and a six-speed automatic gearbox. That's only up by 1 mpg in the city, and it keeps the same Combined rating as last year.

Gas mileage for the 2014 Hyundai Tucson now lags most other small crossovers--despite new engines this year.

With the larger, more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder, ratings go down by one versus the larger engine--to 21/28 mpg. All-wheel-drive models are significantly lower on the highway (25 versus 28 mpg for the larger engine, for instance), so get AWD only if you need it; but we tend to think that the larger 2.4-liter engine is a worthwhile upgrade--and its real-world fuel efficiency may be about the same.
