The I4 gets about 33 mpg for me in mixed driving. It still has plenty of power at 175 HP and is a quiet smooth engine. This is the first 4 cylinder I have ever owned and so far it has performed well. see full Hyundai Sonata review

Some of the BEST gas MPG I have seen in a V6. It is not uncommon for me to obtain 29.5 to 31 MPG on the highway and 17+ in the city. I typically drive a mix and get around 25MPG combined. see full Hyundai Sonata review
