The All New 2015 Sonata Hybrid | Performance Features
The Sonata Hybrid is the first non-plug-in hybrid with the next-generation lithium polymer battery technology, one of the most efficient batteries on the market today. It also features a 6-speed automatic transmission that delivers a smooth feel, 199 net horsepower, and an EPA-estimated 40 MPG Highway.
Using a fully parallel Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) system provides optimum power, with engine and battery power supply working simultaneously. Additional energy saving comes through the electric engine's Hybrid Starter Generator (HSG) function and an all-electric mode up to 74 mph.
It's not just the battery that makes Sonata Hybrid a more efficient vehicle. The Sonata Hybrid's 2.4L DOHC Theta II gas engine features an Atkinson cycle for decreased pumping and friction loss-resulting in improved fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 40 Highway MPG.
The fully independent suspension, with MacPherson struts up front and a multi-link rear, includes advanced SACHS® Amplitude Selective Damping (ASD) shock absorbers for added response and a smooth ride.
