The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid was named a 10 Most Fuel-Efficient Car Under $25,000 by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
The site in question is one of the highly regarded sources of information about car quality and impressions on world’s widest selection of vehicles. They offer pricing information for new and used cars. Also, they are the source of a wide range of guides, helping customers deal with nagging problems in purchasing a used vehicle as well. With this in mind, naming the The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid a 10 Most Fuel-Efficient Car Under $25,000 by the same source, poses a great deal of praise for the Korean car maker, specially in the eco-friendly field of such vehicles.
The 2015 Hyundai Sonara Hybrid offers an industry-exclusive Hybrid Lifetime Battery Warranty, and a EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway rating. The car saw no increase in pricing, compared to the 2014 model. Practical, yet efficient, it is a rather interesting choice for families who want to keep their fuel bills as low as possible. But overall, the car offers the practicality needed in the segment as well.
“The Sonata Hybrid not only provides consumers value with class-leading technology and design, but also alleviates price pain at the pump,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America in a statement. “Hyundai is committed to be a leader in alternative fuel vehicles and to increase our green footprint across our lineup.”
The 2015 Sonata Hybrid features an electric motor coupled to the 2.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. The vehicle uses all-electric mode during optimal moments such as driving on a highway, while keeping the gasoline engine idle until circumstances are necessary for it to be included int he power delivery. This means that the car can save the additional power for acceleration and heavier climbs for example, while keeping the steady, comforting and event free highway runs on EV power alone, saving fuel in the process and providing improved efficiency and saving money for their owners.
“The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid offers all the upscale feel and luxury features of the conventionally powered Sonata, but with the added benefits of a transparent hybrid drive system that delivers exceptional fuel economy,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director, KBB.com. “The fact that the model also offers an exceptionally long warranty is the cherry atop the sundae.”
