A Review of Hyundai’s 2015 Sonata Hybrid

June 12, 2015

Hyundai_Sonata_Hybrid_--_03-28-2012Over the past few decades, it has been noted that oil and fuel prices rule the world. Hence, it is imperative for those who want to survive in the automotive business world to offer a fuel economy that is decent. This fact has forced virtually all automakers to meet the extra mileage target for every new model released. This is also a major reason why many people are choosing hybrid vehicles and why there has been an increased interest in the 2015 Sonata hybrid by Hyundai. This hybrid car will be on roads next year and Hyundai plans to use it as a replacement for the current gasoline-fueled version. This car’s Eco version has the intention of offering a cheaper solution to people interested in a mid-sized sedan car with a better fuel-efficiency.

A 1.6 litre turbocharged engine will be used to propel the Sonata Hybrid. The engine will also have an automatic transmission with a 7-speed dual-clutch. Sonata’s range over urban roads and highways will be extended by 4 and 3 mpg respectively, thanks to the mentioned power train. Therefore, 38/48 mpg is the total mileage figure of Sonata Hybrid next year. To make its first ever appearance in the Hyundai lineup is the 7-speed gearbox. For its power based gear changing, Sonata Hybrid takes an edge over Veloster’s 6-speed dual-clutch. Over the hydraulic actuation, this is a considerable upgrade. On the contrary, the suspension is similar to that of the current version. This means that there is no sacrificing the high driving quality for increased fuel economy.

The opening price of this green car is $24,085 and considering Hyundai’s pricing hierarchy, this figure is respectable. There is a slightly smaller price tag of $21,960 for the base model, which also has few features. On the other hand, the car’s hybrid version has several features including rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot detection system, pushbutton ignition, leather wrapped seats and steering wheel. It also features a proximity key, heated front seats, power based trunk opening, dimming rear view mirror, more chrome over the outer end, 8.0”-display for infotainment system with Blue Link, automatic climate control that is dual-zone, and many more. Another tale that we leave for the moment is how ready the buyers section will be for this car. However, one thing that is for sure is that the car will be worth whatever price will be paid for it. The Sonata Hybrid is set to meet all the requirements and needs of customers in the smartest way possible.
