How's the gas mileage in your Elantra Sedan?
Are you getting MPG numbers close to the EPA Estimates (see official numbers below)?
Whats your driving style like? Do you drive like a granny or like Michael Schumacher.
Is your Elantra Sedan Manual or Automatic?

Please be as detailed as possible if you can to help others get a better idea of how your getting the MPG numbers you are. Shoot away!


EPA Mileage Estimates*/Fuel Capacity Features

Elantra Sedan GLS:
6-speed manual (city / highway / combined): 29 / 40 / 33

Elantra Sedan Limited:

When I had an Elantra sedan rental i was NEVER able to get 40 MPG and I find it hard to believe the Elantra can actually get 40MPG. These EPA mileage estimates aren't always on point.

I would like to see some real world numbers that prove the 40MPG claim.

I can vouch for the 40MPG highway number. My 2011 GLS automatic sedan has gotten this on the highway. In fact, I can take my car from Lawrenceville GA (i live)to Homer Glen IL (parents) and only have to fill up once, just short of the 400 mile mark in Kentucky. Prob would make it to 400 miles, it was not completly empty when I filled up. The computer on the dash does show between 38-41 MPG while on and off cruise control, driving about 70-75mph. And that was on three seperate trips. once with four people and full trunk of baggage, once with 5 people, light baggage, and once with me, my shih-tzu, and the back seat and trunk full of bags, boxes and other junk. Still gets the full MPG's!

Amazing! At least you are getting the MPG's you are suppose to and even on a car that's a couple years old. What is your driving style like and how good are you with keeping up with the maintenance?

I just got mine on Memorial Day weekend. 6-speed manual GLS sedan. I have around 1300 miles on it. I drive mostly highways and averaging anywhere from 35 to 37 miles per gallon. I work 35 miles away, so it's nice to know that I'm using around 2 gallons a day. I usually drive anywhere from 60 to 80 mph, but probably averages to 75 mph. I'm quite happy with it.
