An inline six, thermally, is inferior to a V6. Fuel economy typically is poorer. Don't get me wrong though.... it's my preferred engine config... perfect primary and secondary balance. No balance shafts necessary. Wonderful sound too. Only V6 i really like is the long-ago Alfa Romeo SOHC V6... notwithstanding its wet liner and other issues hehe. Amazingly great sound for a v6.
