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

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
