The Hyundai Tucson is a safe SUV with lots of room inside. How efficient is it, though? To show drivers and families in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre what kind of performance you can expect from it, Maguire Hyundai looks at the Hyundai Tucson MPG ratings.  

Hyundai Tucson Fuel Economy

The Hyundai Tucson can get up to an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city and 30 MPG highway.* To deliver this efficient performance, the vehicle runs on a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.

For more power though, there's an available 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. With this powertrain under the hood, you'll be able to get up to an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 28 MPG highway.*

Both engines work with a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. While front-wheel drive is standard with either powertrain, all-wheel drive is also available. Each drivetrain also runs on a large 16.4-gallon gas tank that can keep your drive going for a while.

Efficient Features

The Hyundai Tucson also offers lots of technologies that can help make your drives even more efficient. For starters, the standard Drive Mode Select feature lets you switch between three modes: Normal, Sport, and Eco.

If you're hitting the road for a long drive, you can also get the most miles out of your gas tank by engaging Cruise Control. It's a useful tool when you're on a road trip. On select trim levels, it can also help keep you safe. The available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go monitors the flow of traffic and can adjust your speed based on how close you are to the vehicle in front of you.

During your drive, you'll also get to see how your SUV is doing on fuel economy. The instrument cluster features a Multi-Information Display that constantly shows your distance to empty and average fuel consumption.

Aerodynamic Design

From its large grille and air intake vent to its sleek shark-fin roof antenna, the Hyundai Tucson is designed to look sharp and reduce drag while you drive. Its rounded features improve the aerodynamics and help you get better MPG numbers.

Overall, the frame runs 176.4 inches long. At 72.8 inches wide and 64.8 inches tall, the vehicle offers excellent handling. It can even pull off a tight curb-to-curb turning diameter of 34.9 cubic feet. Another spec that contributes to both its maneuverability and fuel economy is how light it is. This SUV boasts a curb weight of just 3,309 pounds.
