NEW FOR 2015:
– No changes.
Although there’s a brand new Sonata on Hyundai dealer lots for 2015, the redesign hasn’t yet arrived for the Hybrid version. It carries over from last year without any changes.
The Hybrid version of the Sonata is starting to feel a little long in the tooth compared to the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Accord Hybrid, both of which boast impressive road manners and strong fuel economy numbers, not to mention the just-redesigned Toyota Camry Hybrid. Nevertheless, the Sonata Hybrid has its merits with an impressively smooth hybrid drivetrain, responsive six-speed automatic and good power. A comfortable, well-made cabin is let down only by a lack of rear-seat headroom.
Trim levels on the Sonata Hybrid are base and Limited.
Features on the Sonata Hybrid include 16-inch aerodynamic alloy wheels, Hybrid-specific front grille, LED daytime running lights, LED tail lights, fog lights, power windows with driver’s auto up/down, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity key with push-button start, cruise control, telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, steering wheel audio remote control, 4.3-inch display audio system with six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo, satellite radio, USB and aux-in jack, reverse camera, front heated seats, power heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, solar control glass, leather-wrapped steering wheel, front windshield wiper de-icer, chrome door handles, chrome bodyside insert, dual zone automatic climate control, rear console air ventilation, auto light control, supervision cluster with advanced LCD trip computer, brushed aluminum-design interior accents.
Limited adds eight-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, garage door opener, panoramic sunroof, and 17-inch aerodynamic alloy wheels.
Limited with Technology package adds leather upholstery, heated rear seats, nine-speaker Infinity audio system, 7.0-inch display audio system with navigation, and deluxe door sill plates.
