Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs. the competition

2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

The Accord Hybrid looms large over this group, especially since the Accord was recently given a thorough overhaul that places it at the top of the class. The Accord Hybrid shares the best traits of the regular sedan and offers more power, more safety features and better mpg than the Sonata Hybrid. The Hyundai, however, is more affordable and offers more front and rear headroom for taller passengers.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs. Toyota Camry Hybrid

The regular Toyota Camry sedan has dominated the family sedan segment for decades thanks to high build quality, comfort and proven reliability. The hybrid model isn't quite as dominant but still presents a formidable competitor. The Sonata Hybrid lacks the Camry's long track record, but it otherwise matches up well, especially when considering its warranty coverage.

Compare Hyundai Sonata Hybrid & Toyota Camry Hybrid features

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs. Ford Fusion Hybrid

The Fusion Hybrid packs heavy style in its futuristic curves and shape, and it might be one of the best-looking hybrid sedans out there. It falls behind the Sonata Hybrid on several measures, however, with smaller trunk capacity and less power. The Fusion does offer lengthy complimentary roadside assistance coverage and more rear legroom, though.

Hyundai's first attempt at a hybrid version of its Sonata sedan was pretty lackluster, delivering mileage only marginally better than the regular models. The company went back to the drawing board, and the result was a much-improved vehicle.

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid model marks the third year of the current-generation model, meaning it shares the same improved platform and roomier interior that all Sonatas received in 2015. Styling updates have made the Sonata a bit less sleek-looking but translate into a handsome car that should age well. New for 2018 are restyled front and rear ends, available LED headlights, new driver safety aids, and upgraded navigation features.

The whole point of a hybrid powertrain is improved fuel economy, and the base Sonata Hybrid SE delivers an EPA-rated 42 mpg in combined driving. The gasoline engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and combined with the electric motor, the tandem produces a total of 193 horsepower. Hyundai also offers a plug-in Sonata Hybrid that is equipped with a more powerful battery and a higher-voltage electric motor. The transmission for all Sonata Hybrid models is a six-speed automatic.

The price premium for the plug-in Sonata Hybrid is considerably more than the base-model Hybrid. But that may be a worthwhile investment for buyers who have a short daily commute that could be managed on electric power only, especially if they have recharging capability at work. Also, many states offer tax credits to help take the sting out of the extra upfront cost.

Every 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has a well-designed interior and solid ergonomics. Hyundais are also known for comfortable seats, quiet cabins and quality interior materials for the price. The Hybrid shares those traits. When you're ready to find some fuel savings of your own, let Edmunds help find the perfect Sonata Hybrid for you.
