New member here who has purchased a new Hyundai Tucson base model 2L gas engine/ 6 speed manual .
I'm already a bit disappointed in the liters/100 kms rate displayed on the electronic dash readouts. That shows 11 liters per 100 kms city driving - that's 23 MPG.
It has 340kms on the odometer and already shows by fuel tank level that its nearly 3/4 empty.
As drivers the wife and I are fairly sedate so for semi suburban driving in a regional city I think the economy figures are poor.
I think the sales advertising calculations are done in a lab and don't reflect real conditions.
Being a new engine I would expect that to improve.
We moved from a 5 speed man 1.3 L car to a 2 L 6speed so I grant that some adjustments in driving technique are necessary.
Welcome to Fuelly. Yes SUV'S suffer in real world conditions, heavier than regular cars and with poor aerodynamics, don't expect huge numbers. At least you have a manual gearbox so you can drive the car better and learn shifts that suit you which you can optimise for good economy.
