2011 Hyundai Elantra - Fuel Economy

The 2011 Hyundai Elantra is a vehicle that is blowing the competition out of the water. While many times the gas mileage on cars varies widely, depending on the features installed and what trim level the vehicle is, Hyundai is having none of that. All of the 2011 Hyundai Elantras have a very impressive fuel economy of 29 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. 

So, other than saving consumers gas money, how does this add up to the other vehicles out there in the same class? Here's an example - to have nearly the same mpg with the Chevrolet Cruze, which claims to get 42 mpg highway, you will have to pay for the Eco model, an extra $1900 dollars. Don't like manual? Then you'll have to pay an additional $2825 to get the same mileage with a Cruze. 

The same is true with the Ford Fiesta. While the vehicle is smaller than the Elantra, it doesn't have the same fuel economy. Unless you want to purchase the Super Fuel Economy package. That will force you to pay an additional $2765. 

So not only will you save money on the Elantra in terms of gas, but you even save on price of the whole vehicle. The Elantra starts at just $15,550. The only vehicles that can meet or beat the fuel economy of the Elantra are the Civic Hybrid and the Cruze Eco but guess what - you'll pay anywhere from $3000 to $9000 more. 

Even better: Hyundai didn't make horrible compromises to get those kinds of numbers. No matter what model Elantra you choose, you'll get that great fuel economy. No feature deletion, no weight reductions, and the vehicle is even a bit longer than the outgoing model.
