Now available in a Limited trim that features navigation, leather seats, 17-inch wheels, and heated seats, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a mid-size sedan powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and interior-permanent magnet synchronous motor (using power delivered by the 270V lithium polymer battery) to produce 199 hp. FWD paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission enables fuel mileage to fall within an EPA estimated range of 36 mpg city to 40 mpg highway. Available features include 17-inch wheels, tilt-and-slide sunroof, proximity key with push button start, automatic climate control, 9-speaker sound system, and rear view camera. Safety is comprised of electronic stability control (ESC), traction control system (TCS), anti-lock braking (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), brake assist (BA), tire pressure monitoring (TPMS), advanced dual front airbags, side impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags. The Sonata is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
Following a thorough redesign in 2011, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata carries over relatively unchanged. More features are now available on the base model, and all versions come equipped with a 6-speed automatic as the only transmission option. SE models now feature heated front seats. Limited models no longer include a panoramic sunroof--instead, a regular sunroof has been fitted. The panoramic version is now available as part of Limited Premium Package.
Strong, fuel-efficient engine; radically different styling inside and out; high-tech communications and entertainment features; excellent ride quality; roomy interior; trunk space
Hyundai has put longtime mid-size best-sellers, including the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, directly into its sites with the Sonata. Hyundai meets or exceeds those models in most respects. With EPA fuel economy ratings of up to 24 mpg city, 35 highway, thanks to a direct-injection 4-cylinder engine, the Sonata has fuel-efficiency and power performance numbers that are both better than most base-model mid-size sedans. The Sonata Hybrid promises strong fuel efficiency. The Sonata is classified by the EPA as a "large car," and has more passenger room than most of its competitors, while it has significantly more trunk space than the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu. The Sonata is also lighter than many cars in its class and has a short 35.8-foot turning diameter that's also shorter than most other mid-size sedans. The Sonata also has a trump card in safety, as it's a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. Warranty continues to be a strong selling point for the Sonata. Like with all Hyundai products; the Sonata includes a 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty, 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and five years of roadside go cheassistance.
