Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Car And Plug-In Hybrid Car Review

Here is the Best Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Car And Plug-In Hybrid Car Review, which is recently launched. Although hybrid of late has been gathering dust in new car showrooms, car manufacturers for many reasons, can not afford to ignore them. What comes down must go up: for one, the price of fuel, what you could call the law of gravity to respond to market petrol. Two, the environment and fuel economy regulations, automakers are pushing in that direction. And finally, the Hyundai sonata hybrid car maker somewhat “green” want to be perceived as, and that is certainly true at Hyundai. Enter the second generation Hyundai sonata hybrid car.

Hyundai Doubles Down

Be somnolent hybrid market, but Hyundai lineup expansion is pressing ahead with a program of electrification, and the foray of an element of a plug-in hybrid version of the Sonata is extra.

Like previous generations, 2016, a six-speed hybrid automatic transmission feeding power to the front wheels through a parallel system, with an internal combustion engine augmented by an electric motor. But for all elements of the system are new.

A 2.0-liter DOHC Atkinson cycle 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder replaces the previous 159 hp and torque of 154 154 and 140 horsepower and 151 £ 51 £ feet feet, electric motor, reducing the engine output than the previous version 4 horsepower, but 193 to 199 total system horsepower rating is down slightly.

The plug-in setup, essentially the same as a regular hybrid, although it taps versus 1.6 on a 9.8 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack more kilowatt hours is great. (1.6 kilowatt-hour pack in a 13 percent increase compared to the 2015 model represents.)

And Sonata Hybrid battery pack lives under the trunk floor in a small piece out of cargo capacity (13.3 cubic feet takes the standard Sonata vs. 16.3); More space PHEV, the trunk volume shrinks to 9.9 cubic feet in the sacrifice.

EPA fuel economy ratings better than the new Sonata Hybrid boasts. 36 mpg city and 40 highway, while the previous generation car came to a new 40/44 mpg (or 39/43 in heavy Limited trim level) is rated.

PHEV, for its part, a combined EPA fuel economy rating of 40 mpg and carries (at speeds of 75 miles per hour) as a pure electric is able to work for 24 miles. Also to note that the new models Hyundai’s 10-year, 100,000-mile power train warranty and lifetime of the battery is released.

Seamless quietly


The last Hyundai sonata hybrid car, the new silent-if anything, it is even quieter than the original. Aero contribute to its fuel efficiency improvement measures, a unique front fascia and rear diffuser as well as “eco-point” aluminum wheels, and additional sound deadening acoustic glass and aligned with the in just about anything that rolls to make this interior hushed, including those roles.

(Such as fenders, lights, and badges as a number of other external elements, to differentiate hybrids from conventional Sonatas, greenish neighbors and fellow travelers aware of the commitment of the owners were changed to keep.)

quiet also clearly applies PHEV version, which is a noise generator, a “virtual engine sound system” is equipped with a pure electric mode, the alert for pedestrians.

Both versions internalized smooth power trains, as are well. Sonata is pure power briskly off the line, and the transition to the internal combustion propulsion, is all but imperceptible.

2015 Hyundai sonata hybrid car will hit 60 mph in about eight seconds, and we estimate the 2016 version will be just as fast.

Our drive route on this early preview cover most freeways, hybrid power rack and pinion steering system improvements we have noted, particularly in terms of tactility to the center.

Like other Shankar, Sonatas a price premium commanded by comparison with other family members. Just how much of a premium until the new models this summer (outgoing Sonata Hybrid pricing starts at just under $ 27,000) is visible in the showroom will not be disclosed. PHEV any previous version, but a large number of regular hybrids on the window sticker is sure to come up with.

Prime competitiveness of PHEV Ford Fusion and Honda Accord Plug-in power at $ 40,000 -You ballpark. Hyundai claims to fame is its 24 mile pure electric range that beats them. Other plug-in recharging time Level 1 standard 110/120 volt recharging unit for about nine hours, available 220/240-volt Level 2 setup is similar to almost three hours.

However, unless the future owner to a very short routine, it is difficult to see the benefits of plug-ins. Even in the power range with small gains, once the battery is depleted its hybrid 40 mpg combined fuel economy is not quite as good as cordless hybrid. Standard hybrid, on the other hand, looks like a very good bet.
