2015 Hybrid Sonata
The seventh-generation car touched base in dealerships for the 2015 model year, Hyundai revealed a brand-new Hybrid model in South Korea that follows the styling of the non-hybrid models. The Sonata nameplate may be 29 years of age starting 2014, yet Hyundai's medium size vehicle had little effect on the U.S. market until 2009, when the sixth-era model was presented. Grown more than four years in a process that cost Hyundai $372 million, the YF Sonata turned into the first of its kind to get a mechanical production system on North American soil. It got several just took the ribbon off new Theta motors, and in addition a crossover drivetrain that gave back 38 mpg joined. 

The non-half and half Sonata got yet an alternate makeover for the 2015 model year, which brought outside and inside styling taking into account the all-new Genesis. Good looking to take a gander at and more upscale within, the new Genesis was gotten with energy in the U.S.

With the United States being Hyundai's most critical market as far as half breeds and module mixtures, the overhauled Sonata Hybrid additionally got its yankee immersion at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. With rather thin contrasts as far as styling contrasted and the non-cross breed model, the new 2016 Sonata Hybrid accompanies a totally new drivetrain and enhanced mileage. 

The past era's 2.4-liter four-barrel has been supplanted by a cut back, direct-infusion, two-liter four chamber, while the electric engine brings the aggregate force yield to a not-to-shabby 193 drive.As expected, the Sonata Hybrid’s exterior design is nearly identical to the standard, gasoline-powered sedan’s. This means it benefits from the company’s new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, with more angular body lines, large hexagonal grille, and reshaped light units, making it the sportiest Sonata yet. In addition, the sedan is longer and wider than its predecessor.

But that’s not to say you won’t be able to spot a Hybrid model in a pack of conventional Sonatas. Hyundai made sure the greenest member of its midsize lineup can stand out in a crowd by adding a unique inner-grille pattern while extending the grille farther down into the apron. On the sides, the Sonata Hybrid showcases a distinctive chrome molding at the bottom of the doors and "blue drive" badges on the front fenders.

Noticeable differences are found around back as well. The taillights feature a revised cluster configuration, while the standard diffuser-like element has been replaced by a low-drag piece unique to the Hybrid model. The exhaust tip is concealed behind the bumper. Naturally, the trunk lid comes with "hybrid" lettering in additional to the mandatory "Sonata" badge Step inside and you’ll find the same cabin layout that debuted with the regular Sonata earlier in 2014. Changes are limited to the instrument cluster and the center stack display, which have been updated to include information about the vehicle’s hybrid drivetrain and the all-new Eco mode.

Other than that, expect to find each and every convenience and safety feature available with the standard Sonata. Convenience amenities include Smart Key entry with Smart Trunk function, ventilated seats with four-way lumber support, a heated steering wheel, and Smart Cruise Control among many others. Moving over to safety features, the Sonata Hybrid is equipped with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, and a knee airbag. This is where the Sonata Hybrid is completely different when compared to its siblings. Instead of carrying a 2.4-liter, four-banger under the hood, this sedan is equipped with a smaller, 2.0-liter unit mated to a 51 horsepower electric motor. 

Total system output yield is 193 strength at 6,000 rpm, however the precise torque figures are still a puzzle for the minute. Hyundai has yet to post execution figures, yet we expect the new Sonata Mixture to sprint from nothing to 60 mph in around eight seconds, a good figure for the half and half medium size section. Force makes a trip to the wheels through a fresh out of the box new, six-pace programmed transmission. The unit houses a profoundly effective footing engine, a lighter torsion damper and another grasp with less grip plates for decreased drag. The extent that the efficiency goes, the new 2016 Sonata Half and half is required to offer a 10 percent change contrasted and the 2015 model, with Hyundai saying it accomplishes up to 39 mpg in the city, 44 mpg on the expressway and a consolidated EPA rating of no under 42 mpg.
