Research by Year

The Hyundai Sonata made its way to the States in 1988, responding to the need for more midsize cars in the American market. Since then, the versatile vehicle has won over buyers with its comfortable interior, user-friendly interface, and pleasing design. The addition of a hybrid model to the lineup in 2011 proved that the Korean company could ably keep up with the competition, and often surpass it.

Still in its first generation, the Sonata Hybrid has already risen to the top of its class, thanks to its impressive 199-horsepower output and affordable price tag. In addition to its fuel-sipping personality, the Sonata Hybrid also stands out for its excellent cabin amenities and five-star crash rating.

Lanky passengers may find rear head space a bit snug, and particularly observant drivers say there is an odd feel to the Hybrid's brake system, a trait many such models share. But small gripes aside, the Sonata Hybrid is where comfort meets practicality, and that's a winning combination in any class.

In 2011, Hyundai debuted the Sonata Hybrid, giving buyers a more economical way to get into a well-equipped hybrid vehicle. What outwardly distinguished the Hybrid model from the rest of the Sonata lineup was the blue background on each badge. Under its hood, the Sonata Hybrid carried a 2.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a 30 kW electric motor that cranked out a combined 206 horsepower and 193 pound-feet of torque; output dropped to 199 horsepower in 2013. The engine combined with a six-speed, automatic transmission to deliver 35 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.
