The 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is Better Than Ever

After its debut three years ago, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid  has grown in popularity and has become a great option for drivers looking for a larger, eco-friendly sedan.  Green Family Hyundai believes the 2013 Sonata is better than ever, and we'd like to share some of the specifications that make it stand out.

First, the lithium-polymer battery pack has been bumped from 34 kW to 47 kW for additional power. The battery pack is also smaller and lighter, giving you more cargo space in the back of the trunk. The electric motor's output has also been improved from 30 to 35 kilowatts and outputs 47 horsepower.  When combined with the 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine, the total output on the vehicle is 199 horsepower.

Now you must be wondering about efficiency, since that is one of the main reasons you would want to buy a hybrid vehicle.  The Sonata Hybrid is now rated at 38 mpg, which is an improvement over last year's 36 mpg. The smart engineers at Hyundai made some changes to the design that reduces the drag to 0.24.  This is the lowest amount of drag any U.S production vehicle has ever experienced.
