Endure Soaring Gas Prices with Fuel Frugal Hyundais

Analysts are predicting gas prices to hit an all time high by this summer which could mean as much as $5/gallon in some areas. Though Salt Lake City residents may not experience the worst case scenario, the thought of paying somewhere in the $4/gallon range is enough to make most people cringe. To endure soaring gas prices, your Salt Lake City Murdock Hyundai dealer is a good place to start.


After promising to lead the automotive industry in fuel economy ratings one year ago, Hyundai delivered. Hyundai was recently recognized as the most fuel efficient automaker in American by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  With vehicles like the following three, it's easy to see why Hyundai is a top choice for those looking to save money at the pumps.


2012 Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra is a top contributor to Hyundai's eco-friendly recognition thanks to the stellar fuel economy all models achieve. New for 2012, the Elantra gets an Active Eco System that improves fuel efficiency by as much as 7%. The result of this eco-friendly technology enables the Elantra to deliver impressive fuel economy ratings of 29 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. 


2012 Hyundai Accent

The Accent is another one of Hyundai's leaders when it comes to gas mileage. It stands out from others in its class thanks to a powerful engine and uncompromised fuel economy. The base model comes with a 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine that produces 138 horsepower, more than adequate for everyday driving. Despite the strong engine that powers the Accent from 0 mph to 60 mpg in a quick 9.8 seconds, fuel economy ratings are an impressive 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.


2012 Hyundai Tucson

For Salt Lake City residents looking for a more spacious car without compromising good gas mileage, the Tucson is a top choice. The crossover SUV received a slight redesign for the 2012 model year to enhance fuel economy and also received the same Active Eco System found in the Hyundai Elantra. The changes the Tucson received result in fuel economy ratings of 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway making it one of the most gas frugal vehicles in its class.
