Brilliant design and a more compact battery that fits in the trunk give the Sonata Hybrid the most passenger and cargo volume in the Midsize Hybrid Sedan class. That's more room than the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion hybrids. And that space saving lithium polymer battery comes with a lifetime warranty from Hyundai.
The Sonata Hybrid's cabin offers the most total interior space in its class. It's ergonomically designed so that driver and passenger amenities are within quick and easy reach. The dual automatic climate control offers custom settings for the driver and front passenger. Steering-wheel-mounted audio, phone and cruise controls keep you focused on the road.
The available navigation system features an interactive 8-inch touchscreen or drivers can use voice-recognition to get directions without distractions plus a world of music and content options. SiriusXM Travel Link® allows you to search for nearby businesses like gas stations, ATMs or restaurants. It also gives you a clear picture of current traffic situations, the weather, stocks and sports, all in real time. Plus, it can even let you know fuel prices and movie times.
The driver seat has an available 10-way power adjustment with power lumbar controls to make even long trips seem short. There's also an available 6-way adjustable power passenger seat. The standard dual automatic temperature controls are nice in any weather, while an available heated steering wheel plus the available heated front and rear seats provide extra comfort when the temps turn cold.
These two valuable commodities, often in short supply, are readily available on Sonata Hybrid. The available manual sunshades for the rear windows are not available on any other vehicle in its class and help cut the sun's glare on family or friends sitting in the rear seats. For flexible loading, you just can't beat the available 60/40 split fold-down rear seat back. It's a feature that you can't even get on the Honda Accord Hybrid. You'll also appreciate how Sonata Hybrid's battery has pack has been cleverly designed to fit below the trunk floor giving you a flat, unobstructed space for loading.
Most modern trip computers help you drive smarter and more efficiently. You can see average speed, average and instant fuel consumption, and miles to empty-but the Sonata Hybrid technology display, with its 4.2-inch LCD color screen, takes the idea of control a step further. It displays the status of vehicle operation and hybrid energy flow.
Part of designing a hybrid that's more beautiful on the inside is giving you a better view of what's outside. With the available power tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof, everyone can get their daily dose of sunshine, fresh air and vitamin D.
