In order to show their determination in reducing the fuel consumption of their lineup, Hyundai Motor Company Australia recently done a test with the new i20 hatch back in which they went from Sydney to Brisbane on a single tank of fuel.

Before this the Santa Fe-R took out the SUV class in the transcontinental Global Green Challenge achieving outstanding fuel consumption figures of 5.1L/100km driving between Darwin and Adelaide.

The outcome of the challenge was outstanding! The i20 had travelled the distance on a single tank of fuel (53.63 litres)* and delivered outstanding fuel economy of 4.23L/100km (66.78 mpg).

“I was quite astonished,” said Ordynski. “I originally thought Sydney to Brisbane on one tank seemed an impossible task, especially on the Pacific Highway but then the i20 just kept on going – far beyond our wildest expectations. It was a remarkable journey and a truly special result.”
