KBB Says Hyundai Sedan Offers Safety and Comfort

The IIHS awarded the car the Top Safety Pick + award, based on crash testing and the wide number of available sensor-driven safety features available for the vehicle.

Reviewers Put Vehicles Through a Barrage of Tests

The editors at lived with a group of sedans for a couple of weeks and put them through a barrage of tests. They not only drove the cars, but also checked leg room, loaded and unloaded cargo, installed baby seats and anything else that a typical family might do with a vehicle. Based on the results of those tests and the value that you get with a Hyundai, the Sonata was the top dog in the family vehicle competition.

Sonata Available in Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid

Although the gasoline Sonata gets an excellent rating of 38 mpg on the highway, if you want even better fuel economy for your commutes and family vacations, consider the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid or Plug-in Hybrid. The Hybrid model delivers 44 mpg on the highway and comes in two trim packages, the SE and Limited. The plug-in hybrid can go 27 miles on a battery charge before the efficient gas engine takes over. It produces the equivalent of 99 mpg, has a lifetime battery warranty and available panoramic sunroof. The hybrid models have the same great aerodynamic design and safety features as the gas-powered model, they just deliver a little more fuel efficiency. Whether you want a gas model or a hybrid, stop by Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale and experience the comfort and performance that makes the Sonata a great family choice.


New Nu Engine Now Gets 42 MPG

When Hyundai redesigned the new 2016 Sonata Hybrid, the company not only created a sophisticated look but also delivered more power and better gas mileage. The heart of the vehicle is a 2.0-liter Nu gasoline engine that actually wraps around a 38 watt electric engine. With an electric engine that’s more powerful, the new Sonata has increased gas mileage by 10 percent, up to 42 mpg combined. The new design also allows the battery pack to rest under the floor of the trunk, removing the hump from the legroom of the rear seat passengers. This creates the most passenger space in the vehicle’s class, a whopping 106.1 cubic feet. See how the style, comfort and power of the new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid all come together with a trip to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Helping to avoid collisions are a slew of new features, such as forward collision warning, blind spot detection, lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert. All these features use audible and visual warnings when an action by the driver could cause a wreck. The new Sonata also has electronic stability control and vehicle stability management to help keep your car on the road when either speed or highway conditions cause you to start to lose control.
