Hyundai Elantra Fuel Economy

April 12th, 2023 by

If you’re considering a new vehicle, you might want to look at the Hyundai Elantra. This sedan has a lot to offer. Before you make your decision, take a look at the fuel economy of the Hyundai Elantra.

What is Fuel Economy?

Fuel economy is how many miles you can travel on one gallon of gas. The fuel economy is measured in miles per gallon or MPG and tells you how often you can expect to refuel when traveling. Fuel economy is broken down into city and highway miles. Some vehicles include combined MPG, which is city and highway measured together.

Importance of Fuel Economy

Fuel economy is an important statistic to know to determine how much it will cost to drive the vehicle every day. When you know the MPG and the size of the fuel tank, you can better calculate a vehicle’s fuel costs (and how often you will need to fill up) on a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual basis. This can also help inform your budget for a vehicle when you add these costs to the sticker price.

Hyundai Elantra’s Fuel Economy

Fuel economy for the Hyundai Elantra varies based on the model year. Newer models are much more efficient thanks to the latest technology improvements. For example, the base model 2023 Hyundai Elantra gets 54 MPG combined (52 MPG in the city and 56 MPG on the highway). If you choose the performance-focused N trim, you’ll get up to 31 MPG on the highway.

Factors Affecting Hyundai Elantra’s Fuel Economy

Several factors can impact the fuel economy of the Hyundai Elantra. One of the most important is regular vehicle maintenance. When certain components get dirty, like the oil or oil filter, it makes the engine work harder and use more fuel to travel the same number of miles.

Another factor is the tires you have on the vehicle. Larger tires are heavier, so they decrease fuel economy. Smaller tires have less resistance, which requires less effort to get them rolling.

Your driving style will impact fuel economy as well. Driving at high speed reduces fuel economy, as does frequent stopping and starting. Running the air conditioning lowers the MPG of your vehicle as well.

Maintaining Your Hyundai Elantra

Like most vehicles, the key to maintaining your Hyundai Elantra is regularity. Change the oil and replace the oil and air filters on a regular basis to maintain your vehicle. You should also rotate the tires and check the air pressure and tread. Properly inflated tires with enough tread will get better fuel economy.

Improving Your Hyundai Elantra’s Fuel Economy

You can take steps to improve your Hyundai Elantra’s fuel economy. First, you can drive in Smart mode, which is a drive mode that is more fuel efficient. Keep your tires inflated to the correct level, and don’t leave the engine idling for a long time. Driving smoothly will also help you be more efficient. Take out any extra weight in the trunk if you don’t need the gear all the time.

Most importantly, bring your Hyundai Elantra to Bentley Hyundai for regular maintenance. You can schedule service online or give us a call to set up an appointment.
