2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Overview
The 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is the hybrid version of the popular Sonata midsize sedan, adding more fuel economy to what was already a pretty appealing option in this crowded segment.
For 2013, the Sonata Hybrid's drivetrain has been regineerred and it now offers better fuel economy, estimated at 36/40 mpg city/highway which represents an improvement of two mpg in the city and one 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.
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 (12.1 cubic feet).
The Sonata Hybrid is one hybrid that's easy to tell apart from the regular, gas-only version. A large, hexagonal front air dam, unique headlights and taillights, new side sills and the requisite hybrid badges all distinguish the Sonata Hybrid and give its own unique look. 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.
