How Does the 2014 Hyundai Tucson Gas Mileage Compare?

January 20th, 2014 by

2014 Honda CR-VLooking at the 2014 Hyundai Tucson for its gas mileage? At Mid-Michigan Honda Dealers, we get many drivers coming to us and asking about crossovers and SUVs—as well as their fuel economies.

While the Tucson is a decent vehicle, if you’re looking for efficiency, you’ll want to go with the 2014 Honda CR-V. Let’s look closer at these two family vehicles and make the decision easier for you.

For MPGs, Choose the CR-V

Let’s just get the numbers out of the way first, as that’s probably what you’re concerning yourself with. The 2014 Honda CR-V 2WD LX with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.*

If you were to drive the 2014 Tucson, you would only get 29 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city. Those numbers are close, but Honda also gives you a 185-hp engine with 163 lb-ft of torque to Hyundai’s 164 hp and 151 lb-ft.

That’s right, Honda’s engine is more efficient and more powerful. That’s what we call a win-win.

Add in that the CR-V is one of Honda’s many vehicles that includes next-generation auto tech at the entry-level trim—features such as Bluetooth, a touchscreen infotainment system, and a rearview camera—and it seems clear to us just which vehicle comes out ahead.

While we think that the numbers—and the incredible selection of features on the 2014 Honda CR-V—speak for themselves, we encourage you to visit a Mid-Michigan Honda Dealer and take the CR-V for a test drive to see it for yourself.
