2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Overview
For 2013, the Sonata Hybrid gets a reengineered hybrid drivetrain that results in slightly better estimated gas mileage of 36/40 mpg city/highway, an improvement of 2 mpg in the city and 1 mpg on the highway. The hybrid system combines a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with a more powerful 35-kilowatt electric motor for a total output of 206 hp, which is a little more than the base gas-only Sonata makes.
Changes include a higher-capacity generator, a more powerful hybrid battery pack and a retuned hybrid system. The battery pack is also nearly 5 pounds lighter and it takes up less space, resulting in more trunk room for a total of 12.1 cubic feet.
There's a litany of visual changes versus the regular Sonata that include a large, hexagonal front air dam; unique headlights and taillights; new side sills; and the requisite hybrid badges. Inside, an LCD screen shows energy flow between the drivetrain components as well as indicators for electric mode, battery charge and gas mileage.
High-tech features such as satellite radio, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, Hyundai's BlueLink emergency communication system, and auxiliary and USB inputs are standard. Also available are heated leather front and rear seats, piano-black or simulated wood trim, touch-screen navigation system, and push-button start.
