Here is review of 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Hyundai Sonata cars became popular with the presence of hybrid engine technology embedded in Hyundai. The Sonata Hybrid may have taken longer than expected to hit the market, but its lithium-polymer battery pack and host of fuel-saving features have given Hyundai 35 miles per gallon city and 40 mpg highway fuel economy numbers to flash before consumers. And the Sonata Hybrid isn’t battling the competition on fuel economy alone. It also features attractive styling that sharply differentiates it from non-hybrid Sonata models, while also carrying an MSRP thousands of dollars less than the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Ford Fusion Hybrid. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid may not be twins, but they share much of the same DNA. The sheet metal looks different, but under the skin they are virtually the same. Hyundai also uses the touch screen to display an abundance of information about the hybrid power train and the efficiency of your driving. A screen titled Earth shows the globe with an engine on one side and motor on the other. The more you use the engine, the browner the globe appears, while the motor greens up the earth. So far, despite the pre-production glitches, the Sonata Hybrid is shaping up to be a promising entry in the growing midsize hybrid segment. But it’s going to have to be on its game to match the likes of the Fusion (our 2010 Car of the Year) and Camry hybrids. We’ll find out how the production model stacks up against the competition soon enough, but until then, be patient.
