    5 reasons to buy the 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

    1. Lots of interior space

    Even though the 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a midsize sedan rather than an SUV, there's plenty of space available. In this five-seater, front-seat passengers have 46.1 inches of legroom, with 34.8 inches for those in the rear—plenty of room for your tallest passengers. And because the hybrid batteries are stowed underneath the trunk, the 16 cu-ft of luggage space is identical to that of regular Sonata models.

    2. Impressive fuel economy

    All 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid trims are powered by the same engine. The 150-hp 2.0L four-cylinder gas engine is paired with a 51-hp electric motor and a 1.62 kWh lithium-ion battery. This gives the total system 192 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, all running through a six-speed automatic transmission. This combination achieves an EPA-estimated 47 mpg combined, increasing to 51 mpg on the highway.

    Opt for the entry-level Blue trim if you need to travel farther between fuel stops—this achieves an EPA-estimated 52 mpg combined and 54 mpg on the highway.

    3. Plenty of technology

    Whichever 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid trim you choose, you will get a feature-filled vehicle. Ideal to keep passengers occupied, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, and Bluetooth® connectivity are standard on all trims, alongside a central color touchscreen. Higher-spec SEL and Limited trims add a Bose® 12-speaker audio system, wireless smartphone charging, and power front-seat adjustment. Choose the Sonata Hybrid Limited to get a solar roof, which can generate enough electricity on sunny days for around 2 miles of additional EPA-estimated driving range.

    4. Premium interior

    The 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid interior is made from high-end materials that offer a luxurious appearance and feel. If you choose the Limited trim, you'll love the leather seat coverings and seat heating and ventilation functions. All of this makes the Sonata Hybrid a great choice if you regularly transport passengers or want optimum comfort on long, solo drives.

    5. Easy to drive

    Hyundai has made the 2021 Sonata Hybrid as easy to drive as a regular gas-powered car. It rides comfortably and the steering reacts well to lane changes on the highway. The front-wheel-drive handling is equally poised, resulting in a relaxed on-road experience for you and your passengers. You can also tailor the drive to match your priorities with the Drive Mode Select button. Choose between Eco, Sport, Smart, and custom settings, depending on your mood.
