Considering how ideal it is to own a Hyundai these days, the MPG deserves more credit.
https://www.cars.com/articles/2020-hyundai-venue-mpg-efficient-not-extraordinary-410515/Hyundai originally targeted 33 mpg when the Venue debuted at the 2019 New York International Auto Show in April, but later revised its projection down to 32 mpg. The combined EPA figure aligns with the revision, and it beats Hyundai’s other micro-SUV, the Kona, which maxes out at 30 mpg combined (excluding the Kona EV).
The Kona is arguably a real SUV, as it offers all-wheel drive; the front-drive-only Venue does not, but its high stance looks the part. Combined EPA mileage lands the Venue at the high end of other micro-SUV poseurs — think Nissan Kicks (33 mpg), Kia Soul (up to 31 mpg) or Toyota C-HR (29 mpg). Abandon the getup for a hatchback that isn’t trying to be anything else, and you can get higher mileage still: The 2019 Honda Fit is rated 33-36 mpg combined with an automatic transmission, while the automatic-equipped 2020 Toyota Yaris hatchback is rated 35 mpg.
I agree, it's a big factor for a lot of people when it comes to car shopping.Considering how ideal it is to own a Hyundai these days, the MPG deserves more credit.
Mine's up significantly too but I don't think I'm driving any different. My car spends time sitting, running, warming up and all trips are short distance so the little 1.6 never gets fully warmed up. Both of those hit fuel economy hard.OK So in Canada it shows for the Venue Fuel economy: 7.5-7.8 L/100 km combined (7.9-8.6 city, 6.8-6.9 highway)
I have been creeping up on 8-9.5 L/110 KM in the city lately. Haven't been on the Highway for at least a month. I was getting 6.9.- 7.9 in the city. Anyone have any suggestions on how to better drive these CVT transmissions. I try to ease off from a stop but cant seem to find the sweet spot.
That was taken right after filling up. The Average display resets when you pull away from the pumps. It isn't accurate until some mileage is put on the new tank of fuel. Best to go by the "Drive Info" screen for representative number.
