Fuel is always a big concern of car buyers because of its increasing price. That is why vehicles which offer not only decent gas mileage but also sufficient features are always in high demand. Hyundai, an automotive manufacturer headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, shines as a brand that always strive to deliver high quality customer-friendly cars.
The list below gathers top 5 Hyundai cars with the best fuel economy according to their scores at last year’s Euro 4 Fuel Efficiency Eco Run organized by the Department of Energy.
1. Hyundai Accent Sedan
Price: ₱678,000 - ₱878,000
Hyundai Accent (sedan) - impressive consumption of as low as 29,41km/l
In the Philippines, this car is heading the list of most fuel-efficient sedans. In the DOE Euro 4 Fuel Efficiency Eco Run, the Hyundai Accent 1.6 CRDi 6M/T equipped with diesel engine had beaten out other A-Segment rivals, even those that were far smaller than the Accent in terms of both size and weight, with an impressive consumption of as low as 29,41km/l.
Worth mentioning is that it also surpassed its competitors in B-Segment even though the Hyundan Accent’s engine displacement was larger than those of the others’. Particularly, Hyundai Accent: 1.6L, the others: from 1.3L to 1.5L, which means the Hyundai Accent should theoretically consume more fuel. Read full our review for the Hyundai Accen 2018 sedan here.
