The Hyundai Accent Sedan, Accent Hatch, Tucson (Gas and Diesel), Elantra, and Santa Fe lived up to their Modern Premium cred by figuring among the most fuel-efficient vehicles at the recently concluded DOE Euro 4 Fuel Efficiency Eco Run.

 

A total of 70 vehicles representing 22 global automotive brands participated in the run. Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), official distributor of Hyundai passenger and commercial vehicles in the Philippines, fielded six models.

 

In the passenger car category, the Accent Sedan 1.6 CRDi 6M/T (Dsl) topped the list, beating smaller and lighter vehicles in the A-Segment with a rating of 29.41km/L, and bested major competitors in the B-Segment despite having the highest engine displacement (1.6L vs 1.3L-1.5L engines). The Accent Hatch also performed well, notching 8th place in the B-Segment and entering the overall top 20 list with fuel consumption of 25.64 km/L.

 

The Elantra 1.6 GL 6M/T ranked third in the C-Segment with a rating of 27.83km/L. Being a gasoline-fed vehicle, the Elantra surprisingly shared similar fuel efficiency results with its top two diesel rivals.

 

In the SUV category, the Tucson (Gas and Diesel) and the Santa Fe CRDi were among the Top 10 performers in the entire segment. The Tucson CRDi, which ranked second in the Compact SUV segment, turned out to be more fuel efficient than smaller and lighter SUVs, with a rating of 24.80km/L.

 

While in the mid-size SUV category, the Santa Fe CRDi ranked second with a fuel consumption rating of 22.76km/L, outperforming its peers with exceptional fuel efficiency despite having one of the most powerful engines among the SUV participants.

 

Said HARI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, “The results of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Euro 4 Fuel Economy Run only validate our commitment to responsible innovation-innovation that responds to our customer’s desire for fuel economy and is responsible to the community and to the environment in our concerted bid to reduce toxic emissions in the atmosphere. That is what being Euro 4-compliant is all about. As our ongoing “Gusto” campaign goes, we are proactively responding to what customers today need and want. I am proud to say that Hyundai engineering innovation in the Accent, Accent Hatch, All-New Elantra, All-New Tucson, and Santa Fe continues to give the market just that.”
