2017 Drive Mode Select Option

I really enjoy the drive mode select button on my 2017 Tucson SE with the 2.0 GDI engine: (Normal, which is the default), (Eco), and (Performance). Over the last few weeks I've discovered when to and when not to use certain drive options when in full automatic. I've found the Normal default mode is an all-round decent drive mode to be in for most freeway and street driving. The Performance mode definitely is the one to be in when wanting to accelerate faster off the line and also for stepping-on-it to pass a car at any driving speed; basically it pulls quicker power from the engine that is really noticeable. Performance mode is when one feels like driving a little aggressively/offensively. The Eco mode is best for when one is not in a hurry and just cruising on the streets or highway. I've noticed a little better gas mileage in Eco mode for sure. CAUTION: I've experienced some sluggish performance when in Eco mode when I needed to rapidly accelerate to get out of an intersection or attempt to pass a car. Therefore Eco mode is when you should use extra defensive driving skills and not running late for work. I have yet to test out the three drive modes when using the Shiftronic. I'd assume that when using Shiftronic it would be best to be in Performance mode to achieve the most from it. To this date, I've experienced no jerkiness or rough shifting in my 2017's six speed transmission so far, knock on wood!

The transmission issues are with the 7-speed DCT so you shouldn't experience any issues with the traditional 6-speed auto. Eco mode in the DCT is almost dangerous.

I'm late to the party, but why is ECO mode on the DCT dangerous? I have been using that basically for the first 7600 miles thusfar including 2 8 hour trips each way with mountain passes and higher altitude driving conditions.

Some think the "no go" early issue on the DCT was worse when using the ECO mode. Hyundai even removed it from the 2017 models.


I just leave mine in regular mode.

Yes, but the Performance Mode will get you there with more fun!

I'm always out for the best MPG I can get since I commute pretty far (in my standards) so I am always trying to get the best I can. But I do agree there are times when it thinks too slowly when I need it to go, when it comes to the ECO mode. If the MPG difference isn't that much then no sense in using it then I guess.

In that case...

If you want decent performance and decent MPG, then drive in the normal default mode. Gas mileage primarily has a lot to do with RPMs, rapid starts, and how heavy your foot is while driving. Always keep it under 75 mph for better MPG.

Has anyone checked what kind of mpg increase you get using eco mode? (Or decrease using Sport mode). I think Hyundai suggests it would be about a 7% difference between each mode (roughly 2 mpg). I realize how and where you drive can have a big impact on these numbers, but I was wondering about real driver experiences. Also: If you are driving on an open highway with no traffic, not having to brake or accelerate and your cruise control is set at 70 mph, would it still improve your mpg to be in eco mode?

I've been using eco mode almost exclusively, i also have a long commute to work. I calculate all my mileage using fuelly, and filling my tank to full every time, essentially dividing miles driven by gallons used. I tried normal mode for 2 tanks and i find overally, it's probably about 1-2mpg less than eco mode. It's negligible for most people, so they should stick to normal mode. For people that drive alot, every little bit helps.

^ This.

I used to switch between the modes but since the update I mainly keep it in ECO mode. I find that even with the constant stop and go traffic of NYC, I get better mileage in ECO than the others.
