2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Review

(3 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Plenty of people are looking for better ways to not only save at the fuel pump but to reduce their carbon footprints. The natural solution is to choose a hybrid vehicle. Hyundai threw its hat in the arena with the 2012 Sonata Hybrid. Like its conventional sibling in many ways, the model is equipped with an electric engine to help conserve fuel. The powertrain does an excellent job in most road conditions with only a few quirks to get used to. The exterior and interior body design is pleasing to the eye and offers a long list of standard features for the buyer. Available in only one trim level, the Sonata Hybrid is offered with a choice of the Leather package and Ultimate package for those who want more than the standard features.
