Constantly looking to raise the bar, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid takes an already capable and sharply-designed sedan to the next level—along with plug-in hybrid vehicles in general. This member of Hyundai’s hybrid and electric vehicle lineup boasts a state-of-the-art lithium-ion polymer battery, forming the basis of the Sonata’s hybrid drive system that uses less gas without compromising performance. Learn more about the unyielding drive of the 2019 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, with the Hyundai Experts at Edmonton’s Go Hyundai.
The Sonata PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle) offers the pinnacle of lithium-ion technology thanks to its lithium-ion polymer battery. Compact and reliable, this battery is lighter and takes up less space, while lasting longer, charging faster, and providing more energy than batteries found in other PHEVs. In Hyundai’s capable full-parallel hybrid drive system this battery combines with a class-exclusive Atkinson-cycle 2.0-litre 4-cylinder Gasoline Direct Injection, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Drive Mode Select, meaning you can switch from incredibly efficient, low-emission battery-powered driving to thrilling gas-engine performance at the click of a button.
The intelligent design of the Sonata PHEV extends beyond its revolutionary engine, and into its intuitive, driver-oriented cabin. Just as the Sonata refuses to compromise performance and efficiency, the interior offers equal measures of convenience and comfort. Steering-wheel mounted controls and a centre console screen keep your eyes on the road, while the standard heated front seats and steering wheel keep your mind from wandering from the task at hand during brisk Edmonton winters. A standard 7.0” touch-screen audio system can be upgraded to an 8.0” system with built-in navigation, though both options are well-equipped to handle the rigours of your commute (hands-free) thanks to Hyundai’s exceptional BlueLink℠ system.
The 2019 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid’s exterior design provides aerodynamic ability, presented through a handsome and athletic frame. A cascading grille featuring dynamic active air flaps provides an improved driving experience, while also providing a focal point on the Sonata PHEV’s wide and aggressive frame. Standard LED Daytime Running Lights combine with the available LED headlights for a sharp and illuminating accent, before blending into the chiselled lines of the Sonata PHEV’s body, culminating in the sculpted LED taillights that put an impressive exclamation point on this sporty Plug-In Hybrid. A standard hands-free trunk is just a little extra icing on the cake.
With the 2019 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, Hyundai sought to combine performance with efficiency without compromising any other aspect in this great sedan. From its smart and spacious interior to its aggressive styling and sporty performance, it’s safe to say Hyundai accomplished its goal. The fact that the Sonata PHEV also contains one of the most efficient batteries found in a hybrid or electric? Well, that’s just Hyundai raising that plug-in hybrid bar.
