Hyundai Elantra Engine & Efficiency

Before we dig into how you can maximize your Hyundai Elantra fuel efficiency, we first have to establish what powers this impressive sedan. This will lay the groundwork for the MPG you can earn. The Elantra packs a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine under its hood, capable of pumping out 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

This engine is paired with a SmartstreamÒ Intelligent Variable Transmission. This performs like an automatic transmission; however, it does not have fixed gear ratios. Instead, it constantly optimizes looking for the ideal gear ratio for peak performance. This transmission helps the sedan to earn an EPA-estimated 33 city/43 highway MPG.1

Idle Stop & Go

The Hyundai Elantra also comes with an Idle Stop & Go system. This system was designed and implemented into the vehicle with the specific purpose of increasing fuel efficiency. So, how does this feature work?

When you bring your Elantra to a halt, the Idle Stop & Go will kick into gear. It’ll shut your engine down while keeping your key interior features—like radio and air conditioning—on by using the battery power. This will preserve fuel while you’re not actively in motion.

Then, once you are ready to resume driving, all you’ll have to do is transition your foot from the brake pedal to the gas pedal. At this point, your engine will turn back on, and you’ll be ready to resume your commute.

This feature is applicable anywhere, but it is very useful in settings with frequent stops. For example, a downtown environment with frequent stoplights.

Optimizing Fuel Efficiency

One of the most popular ways to optimize fuel efficiency within a vehicle is to avoid idling. Though, we’ve already learned that the Elantra’s Idle Stop & Go system has you covered here. There are some additional practices you can explore that could help optimize your fuel efficiency further, though.

Minimizing cold engine operation is one example of this. While it’s not practical to always avoid cold engine operation, reducing it can help your fuel efficiency. In the same light, letting your Elantra warm up before you start your commute can also help in this area.

Another way to improve your fuel economy is to avoid frequent acceleration and deceleration where applicable. Driving smoothly and conservatively is a surefire way to ensure you receive excellent fuel economy. The Elantra’s available Smart Cruise Control can help in this aspect, as well.
