Hyundai Veracruz Gas Mileage

The mid-sized Hyundai Veracruz was introduced for the 2007 model year, as Hyundai’s move into the upmarket crossover SUV waters. Room for seven passengers, competitive pricing, and reasonable gas mileage make the Veracruz an interesting alternative to the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot, although the competition’s bound to get tougher in the coming years. Highway gas mileage ratings in the low twenties miles per gallon (MPG) range should be the bottom range for seven-seat SUVs, going forward.

All models of the domestic 2008 Veracruz are fitted with a 3.8 liter V-6 engine that produces a healthy 260 horsepower, mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Veracruz is currently Hyundai’s largest SUV.

Note: the EPA tweaked their testing procedure, starting with the 2008 model year, with the end result being that the 2008 MPG estimates are now lower than previous years. As always, YMMV.

PURCHASED A 2008 HYUNDI VERACRUZ AND I’M NOT HAPPY WITH GAS MILEAGE, GETTING 16MPG CITY AND 19MPG HIGHWAY. TOOK BACK TO DEALER AND THEY SAID ENGINE IS WITHIN SPEC’S. CAN ANY ONE TELL ME WHAT I CAN DO TO IMPROVE MILEAGE?

Gary – looks like city mileage is where it should be, but highway mileage is low.

What is your average highway speed? The faster you drive, the more gas you’ll burn.

Does your SUV have an instant fuel economy display? If so, turn it on and leave it on…this will give you the feedback you need to lighten your right foot and get better mileage.

I also have a 2008 Vera Cruz I just purchased with low miles. Best highway mileage I can get is 18.6MPG. Could be low qlty gas, maybe I need to use full synth oil, I don’t know, I’m not speed demon either but I use A/C most of the time as it’s now August.
