A Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 language applied future-oriented design. HID headlamps, LED DRL and rear spoilers are equipped to add luxurious touch, and aerodynamics is used to minimize drag. Enjoy efficient city and highway fuel economy, plus everything else that makes the Sonata Hybrid a one-of-a-kind driving experience.
The standard LED Daytime Running Lights and LED taillights not only look great but also increase visibility. The available HID Xenon headlights are a brilliant upgrade, while the available automatic High Beam Assist feature automatically switches from high to low beam headlights when an oncoming vehicle is detected by the forward-looking camera.
This standard feature makes loading and unloading your Sonata Hybrid more convenient. The hands-free smart trunk opens automatically when it senses the Proximity Key is behind the vehicle within three feet for more than three seconds.
So sporty, so dynamic. The big mesh grille surely knows how to express the dynamism of Sonata Hybrid. Behind the grille exists an intelligent hydraulic control unit to maximize aerodynamic performance and fuel efficiency.
Sonata Hybrid offers a choice of alloy wheels ranging from 16" to 17", all carefully designed for low-noise performance, improved fuel efficiency and dynamic driving.
Open up and become one with the nature! Feel the fresh air, openness and best-in-class spaciousness with the panoramic sunroof, a unique present in this class.
In a class by itself. Enjoy best-in-class passenger and cargo volume plus an available panoramic power sunroof that gives you a better look at the sky above. Sonata Hybrid offers an impressive array of available features that turn your driving experience into something exceptional.
The Sonata Hybrid's cabin offers the most total interior space in its class. It's ergonomically designed so that driver and passenger amenities are within quick and easy reach. The dual automatic climate control offers custom settings for the driver and front passenger. Steering-wheel-mounted audio, phone and cruise controls keep you focused on the road.
Brilliant design and a more compact battery that fits in the trunk give the Sonata Hybrid the most passenger and cargo volume in the Midsize Hybrid Sedan class. That's more room than the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion hybrids. And that space-saving lithium-ion polymer battery comes with a lifetime warranty from Hyundai.
Most modern trip computers help you drive smarter and more efficiently. You can see average speed, average and instant fuel consumption, and miles to empty-but the Sonata Hybrid technology display, with its 4.2-inch LCD color screen, takes the idea of control a step further. It displays the status of vehicle operation and hybrid energy flow plus available safety features such as Smart Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning.
The driver seat has an available 10-way power adjustment with power lumbar controls to make even long trips seem short. There's also an available 6-way adjustable power passenger seat. The standard dual automatic temperature controls are nice in any weather plus the available heated front seats provide extra comfort when the temps turn cold. When the weather warms up, the available ventilated front seats help cool things down.
Two valuable commodities. The available manual sunshades for the rear windows are not available on any other vehicle in its class and help cut the sun's glare on family or friends sitting in the rear seats. For flexible loading, you just can't beat the available 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback. And Sonata Hybrid's battery system was cleverly designed to fit below the trunk floor giving you a flat, unobstructed space for loading.
The available navigation system features an interactive 8-inch touchscreen or drivers can use voice-recognition to get directions without distractions plus a world of music and content options. In addition to the features of the standard touchscreen, you'll enjoy SiriusXM Travel Link® which allows you to search for nearby businesses like gas stations, ATMs or restaurants. It also gives you a clear picture of current traffic situations, the weather, stocks and sports, all in real time. Plus, it can even let you know fuel prices and movie times.
Modern, aerodynamic design. Its expressive exterior is the latest iteration of Hyundai's signature design language. It's a confident and contemporary look that breaks free from category norms while delivering a class-leading lowest coefficient of drag.
It's not just the battery and electric motor that makes Sonata Hybrid a more efficient vehicle. The Sonata Hybrid features a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that runs on regular gasoline and offers Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) for smooth acceleration and efficient cruising resulting in improved fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 45 Highway MPG.
Everybody has a different take on steering feel. Some want more steering effort, others less. Well, with Drive Mode Select, now you get to choose. Drive Mode Select adjusts throttle response and transmission shift points as well as steering calibration to match your driving style. Select from three modes: Eco, Normal or Sport by simply touching a button on the center console.
Using a fully parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) system provides optimum power, with engine and battery power supply working simultaneously. The Sonata Hybrid switches seamlessly between a gasoline engine and an electric motor to deliver efficient power. The gasoline engine delivers the primary charge energy for the lithium-ion polymer batteries while the regenerative braking system provides supplemental energy.
Compared to the battery used in Camry Hybrid, the Sonata Hybrid uses a polymer gel as the electrolyte in its battery. This allows for a thinner and lighter casing, which translates to more cargo and interior volume. It also discharges more slowly to maintain available power longer than nickel-metal hydride batteries.
For efficient and safe electrical energy management, a compact, powerful and long lasting 270 V lithium polymer battery is installed. The battery, being relocated to the tire well, renders the car's luggage compartment more space.
Smooth 6-speed automatic transmission device is attached to a clutch separating the hybrid engine and traction motor.
Drive mode system has different driving types-normal, sports, and eco-depending on the steering feel you require and to suit different driving conditions.
Innovation that protects. Sonata Hybrid's impressive list of available safety technology includes many advanced features, such as Smart Cruise Control with stop/start capability, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, Forward Collision Warning and more.
Forward Collision Warning is an available feature that uses a forward-sensing camera to look down the road, determine the closing speed of your vehicle in relation to the vehicle ahead and provide an audible warning that alerts the driver to a potential collision.
This available radar-based system helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver's blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert to help keep you aware as you move down the road. When reverse gear is selected, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the sides. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it's not, gives the driver an audible and visual warning.
Drift outside your lane without signaling and this available system is designed to inform you with an audible and a visual cue. It turns technology into a tool that helps drivers maintain vehicle control and lane positioning.
The available distance sensors embedded into the rear bumper make parking as simple as driving. They produce a warning sound for the driver if the rear of the car gets too close to any object.
Properly prepared for collisions from every angle. Sonata Hybrid promises your safety with a 6-airbag system that includes driver and passenger airbags, front side airbags and front and rear curtain airbags.
The safety features are truly everywhere. Active headrests help reduce the chance of whiplash in a rear-end collision.
The electric parking brake operates with simple button control for excellent parking convenience.
