Find a Fuel Efficient Hyundai in Albuquerque

Gas has been near $4 a gallon for a long time now, and if you're like me, you find that very expensive, especially if you drive a lot. And it doesn't look like the price of fuel will be going down any time soon. Some people just bite the bullet, but others are seeking creative solutions and buying more fuel-efficient cars and SUVs.

The good news is that overall, according to the Washington Post, cars in the U.S. are more fuel-efficient than ever before, hitting an all-time high gas mileage of over 23 mpg. That's an improvement over just a couple of years ago. The reason for this increased gas mileage is two-fold: when gas prices go up, people tend to buy more fuel-efficient cars to save money; and Congress enacted a new set of fuel standards in 2007 (the first time that had been done since 1984).

And do you know which car manufacturer is leading the way? (Hint: it's not Japanese, American or German.) That's right: it's Hyundai. In fact, according to Autotrader, Hyundai sells more fuel-efficient cars than any other car manufacturer. Already by 2011, Hyundai sold over 100,000 vehicles that got 40 mpg. Can you guess which Hyundais get the best gas mileage?

  • If you're looking for the perfect in-city car to get around town, the subcompact Hyundai Accent is a top choice. It offers a comfortable ride, a nice interior, and plenty of space for a car of its size. According to fueleconomy.gov, the Hyundai Accent gets 28 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway for 31 mpg combined.
  • The award-winning Hyundai Elantra is a leader in its class, with great reliability, performance and styling. It offers a smooth, quiet ride and great handling. According to fueleconomy.gov, the Hyundai Elantra gets 28 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway for 32 mpg combined.
  • The mid-size Sonata is ranked #8 in affordable midsize cars by U.S. News. It offers great value and a large, stylish, high-quality interior. According to fueleconomy.gov, the Hyundai Sonata gets 22 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway for 26 mpg combined. And the Sonata comes in a Hybrid model for 2014, which gets up to 40 mpg on the highway.

Let's see how much you can save with great Hyundai gas mileage. If you drive 15,000 miles a year, you'll pay $2,445 in gas if you drive a car that gets average gas mileage. If you drive an Accent, you'll pay only $1,814, for an annual savings of $631. If you drive an Elantra, you'll pay only $1,757 for gas, and save $688 a year over a car that gets average gas mileage. Even if you drive the larger Sonata, you'll save $282. And remember, you'll save this amount on gas EVERY YEAR. Think about it this way: if you buy an Elantra and drive it for 10 years, you'll save $6,880.
