Sonata Hybrid Performance

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid PerformanceThe Sonata Hybrid offers a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor that makes 192 horsepower combined. This engine setup has plenty of reliable power and rapid acceleration, aided by a sharp 6-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain is highly regarded for its seamless shift between gas and electric power.

While each Sonata Hybrid trim level varies with fuel efficiency, the Blue trim is the most efficient and delivers an EPA-estimated 50 city/54 highway MPG.1 This is one of the top outputs in the class. Most of the other trims are around an EPA-estimated 45 city/51 highway MPG.1 The top Limited trim adds a standard solar panel that increases fuel economy and helps power some interior accessories.

Sonata Hybrid Interior

The Sonata Hybrid has room for up to five people in two rows of spacious seats. Adults have ample headroom and legroom in both the front and back, and the seats have plenty of long-distance comfort. Even at the base level, the Sonata Hybrid has high-quality materials and soft-touch surfaces. Cloth upholstery is standard.

Available interior features include:

  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
  • Heated front seats
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Ambient lighting
  • Rear center armrest with dual cup holders

The Sonata Hybrid’s battery pack is stored under the rear seats, so it doesn’t take up space in the trunk like many of its competitors. The trunk has a total capacity of 16 cubic feet, which is well above the class average. If you have long or awkward cargo, you can fold the 60/40-split-folding seats down to access the space in the rear seat.
