And even though the 245 horsepower of the Sonata’s available 2.0L Gasoline Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine with twin-scroll turbocharger is slightly overcast by the Passat’s 280 horsepower1 of its V6 FSI® engine, it compensates by its superior fuel efficiency of 23/32 MPG city/hwy2 against the Passat’s 20/28 MPG city/hwy3. Plus, the Passat requires premium fuel to achieve this potency1, which will also put a higher dent in your wallet.
