Sonata Hybrid Is One of the 10 Most Fuel-Efficient Cars Under $25,000

Most Fuel-Efficient Cars

You’ve heard of Hyundai’s Sonata and perhaps even have one sitting in your driveway, but have you paid much attention to the sedan’s hybrid version? The 2015 Sonata Hybrid was recently named one of Kelley Blue Book’s “10 Most Fuel-Efficient Cars Under $25,000”, a value worth exploring.

The Sonata Hybrid boasts 40 miles per gallon on the highway. It optimizes the use of power between the electric motor and gasoline engine and is able to speed up to 74 mph in its pure electric drive.

In addition, the sedan offers a Hybrid Lifetime Battery Warranty, an exclusive feature not offered by any other automaker in the industry, and impressive overall value.

“The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid offers all the upscale feel and luxury features of the conventionally powered Sonata, but with the added benefits of a transparent hybrid drive system that delivers exceptional fuel economy,” said Jack R. Nerad, KBB.com executive editorial director. “The fact that the model also offers an exceptionally long warranty is the cherry atop the sundae.”

New Sonata Hybrid Features Turbo Powertrain Option

New Sonata Hybrid

A new version of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will be on the market soon, and here at Southtowne Hyundai, we like pretty much everything about it. It’s got an all-new design, which looks just as up-scale and luxurious as the new Genesis, pushing the Hyundai lineup even farther into the future and making it a truly luxury brand. Plus, it’s got some new advanced powertrain options as well.

You can get either a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower/177 lb-ft or an all-new turbo option, a 2.0-liter direct-injected turbo engine with 241 horsepower/258 lb-ft. Both models are matched up to a six-speed automatic transmission, and together, these versions of the Sonata Hybrid will make the model the most advanced and powerful option in its segment.

According to Hyundai itself, the new Sonata is “easily the best-built, most technologically-advanced and drivable Sonata yet.” Here at SouthTowne, we see no reason to disagree! Come in to learn more about the car’s all-new design, its sculpted and aerodynamic lines, new powertrain options, and much, much more!
