The Sonata Hybrid includes a number of sound system and multimedia improvements for the new model year: a7-inch color touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD radio, and next-generation Hyundai car connectivity. A new color palette will be available mid-year.
There are two trim levels offered for the Sonata Hybrid: base SE and upscale Limited. Both use the same hybrid drivetrain. The four-cylinder gasoline engine produces 154 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque; the electric motor contributes 51 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
As expected with a hybrid, fuel economy is excellent with an EPA-estimated 42 mpg in combined city and highway driving. Total range is over 650 miles on a single tank.
Standard features include a hands-free trunk opener, driver memory, and a rearview camera.
Comes equipped with heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, automatic climate control, and 16-inch aluminum wheels. Options are very few: upgraded floor mats, wheel locks, a first aid kit, a trunk hook, and a rear bumper appliqué.
