People are used to buying Hyundais when they want a low price. The Korean brand is a famous success story, turning itself from an automotive off-brand into a top-tier automaker. Still, buyers are used to spending less than they would for a competing Honda or Toyota.
With the fully redesigned 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, though, Hyundai offers a different sort of value play. Instead of undercutting the competition with its $27,750 base price — which is within a few hundred dollars of the best-selling Toyota Camry Hybrid and $2,000 more than the Honda Accord Hybrid — the new Sonata Hybrid aims to the car you’d just rather have. Its strengths include upscale styling, a high-tech cabin, and unique features like a solar-panel roof. Plus, you get Hyundai’s other perks: three years of free scheduled maintenance and up to 10 years or 100,000 miles of warranty coverage. If an elegant yet spacious mid-size sedan that can get more than 50 miles per gallon sounds interesting, keep reading to see if the new Sonata Hybrid is worth your money.
