The Elantra Eco’s 40-mpg highway rating was a big deal after Hyundai’s earlier scandal about erroneous MPG claims, and now even the more mainstream Elantra models hit that number.
When Hyundai first introduced the sixth generation of its compact sedan for the 2017 model year, it added an Eco trim level with a turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-four and a dual-clutch automatic transmission. Again, Hyundai claimed a 40-mpg EPA highway rating—but for real this time. And now, for 2020, there will be even more Elantra models that hit that vaunted EPA highway rating, thanks to a new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) for the car’s base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
The EPA’s website shows two 2020 Hyundai Elantra models with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission. These models previously used a six-speed automatic transmission and earned EPA ratings of up to 33 mpg combined, 38 highway, and 29 mpg city, while the new transmission bumps those numbers up to 35 mpg combined, 41 mpg highway, and 31 mpg city in the base Elantra SE model. The 2020 Elantra’s numbers match the related 2019 Kia Forte’s EPA ratings, which also uses a CVT: Hyundai and Kia’s first use of this transmission type
