Sonata Hybrid with solar roof panel launched

Sonata Hybrid has a long list of new features to offer. The Hyundai’s Sonata Hybrid is almost here and the sedan looks so sleek. The front to end spline lines and the single wave devil’s horn-like taillights are the first things to notice.

The 2020 Hyundai will come in three trims: the aforementioned Blue, mid-level SEL starting at $30,875 and the range-topping Limited starting at $36,275. The price tags fall shorts, doesn’t it? The Hybrid is just 4000 dollars of extra weight.

The Sonata gets its power from a 2.0-liter GDI HEV engine which makes 150 hp and 139 lb-ft on its own. The combined hybrid output, however, stands at 192 hp. The engine is paired with 6-speed automatic transmission to ditch the conventional CVT. And the extra dollars come back with fuel efficiency. Hyundai claims that the Blue trim will return 54 mpg on the highway and 50 mpg in the city with an overall fuel efficiency of 52 mpg. On a full tank it claims a range of an impressive 686 miles.

The newest feature to pin on is the Solar roof panel, which is said to add two miles to the overall range. Though the system also saves power loss from the HVAC and infotainment system, it takes six hours to fully charge. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid also comes with Hyundai Digital Key. This allows the owner to unlock the vehicle with android only smartphone application. Customers can also share the key to family and friends.
