The Sonata Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injected four-cylinder engine and powerful electric motor that combine to produce 193-hp. The power is sent through a six-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. Traction control, stability control, anti-lock brakes, anti-whiplash front head restraints and more, all combine to ensure occupant safety. The exterior features unique Hybrid only alloy wheels and chrome grille. Interior features include smart-trunk opener, back-up camera, unique metal-grain trim, Supervision instrumentation and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Limited trim is standard with 17" alloy wheels, leather interior, heated and ventilated front seats, power driver seat with lumbar, garage door-opener, and compass.
For 2016, the Sonata Hybrid has been redesigned, with improvements including the battery pack capacity and power output.
