With a car price starting at $25,795, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a midsize sedan loaded with comfort and convenience features.
Standard features include dual-zone climate control, power windows and door locks, a six-speaker audio system with MP3 capability, cruise control, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and six air bags as well as stability and traction control. It also has a heated driver's seat with an eight-way adjustment and power lumbar controls.
The hybrid version of the Sonata is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor that produces 206 horsepower and gets a fuel-efficient, EPA-estimated 35 mpg city and 40 mpg on the highway. New for 2012 is Blue Link, a system similar to GM's OnStar that provides real-time traffic and weather, a connection to emergency services and roadside assistance, maintenance alerts and the ability to sync to a smartphone to help owners locate their car in a crowded parking lot.
