Sonata Honored for Best All Around Performance

Noting that the Hyundai “stands out” in a field of competent competitors, the Automotive Science Group (ASG) recently honored the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid for “Best All Around Performance,” and the Sonata sedan as “Best Economic Performance” in the field of full-size sedans. “In a highly competitive class, the Sonata is a standout that provides fuel efficient technologies at a best in class value,” according to the founding partner of ASG, Colby Self. “Additionally, five Hyundai vehicles earned ASG’s Best 5 All-Around Performance honors, further reinforcing Hyundai’s position as a market leader.” For the best selection of Sonata’s in the Valley, look no further than Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Selections Based on Ecological Economics

ASG has created the Automotive Performance Index (API), which combines social, economic and environmental performance when evaluating vehicles. This includes the cost of ownership for the first 6.5 years, including the initial cost of the vehicle. All three determining factors are equally important when it comes to evaluating a vehicle’s worth. Making sure that building vehicles does not overtax an already burdened resource system is an important part of ASG’s evaluation. “The recognition by ASG is a testament to Hyundai’s commitment to all aspects of performance and providing the best possible experience for our customers,” said Hyundai senior group manager Brandon Ramirez. “Our high marks across these measures demonstrates our drive to do better, not just in one aspect but across the board.

Sonata Hybrid Comes in Four Flavors

Most companies offer a hybrid model in one flavor, but the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid comes in a whole range of tastes. Choose the base SE and you still get modern features such as a proximity entry key, push button start and Blue Link telematics while still earning 45 mpg on the highway. Step up a smidge to the Limited and Hyundai adds blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, leather seats and sporty 17-inch alloy wheels. When you head to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale for a test drive, make sure and look at the Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid Limited. These two models let you bring your vehicle to a full charge at night while the car rests in the garage. The Limited model also has an Infinity premium stereo system, Xenon headlamps, rear parking sensors and smart cruise control that keeps you a specified distance from the car in front. All the Hyundai Sonata hybrids have a lifetime battery warranty to go along with the limited 5-year, 60,000-mile bumper to bumper coverage.
