Quick Look

The Hyundai Sonata has undergone a complete redesign for the 2015 model year. The hybrid model first joined the Sonata lineup in 2011 and has since received a few tweaks, and four years later, this sedan is more refined than ever.




Full Review

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a midsize sedan that competes with some of the best-selling cars on the market today, but this underdog is looking to pave its path by offering what many don’t – value. This hybrid delivers a bucket full of features at a price that most rivals can’t compete with.

Having been redesigned for 2015, this hybrid is more attractive than ever. The Sonata Hybrid is available in two trim levels: base and Limited. The most attractive parts of this vehicle are its sleek look, its refined interior and the added benefit of fuel efficiency with the hybrid engine.

The exterior design of the 2015 Sonata is what Hyundai describes as “an athlete in a well-tailored suit.” While it may be a more toned-down version than the one last year, it seems as though the design will also have more longevity. The more mature look includes wider shoulders and horizontal lines that give off a calmer look. There is also an addition of a rear lip spoiler and its chrome surroundings, which in conjunction with the dual exhaust with bright tips, add a sporty touch.

The cabin of the Sonata is as clean as the car’s outward appearance. The centre stack got straightened out and the hierarchy of controls re-evaluated thanks to a bit of regrouping. The overall design is more formal than that of the previous generations, while the steering wheel is sportier and more reminiscent of the one in the Genesis. The cabin is spacious, being able to comfortably fit the five passengers that it promises. Those in the back get even more hip and legroom this time around, but headroom stays consistently tight for taller passengers due to the sloping roofline. The trunk is ample at 16.3 cubic feet of space and the 60/40 split-folding seats will only increase the room for cargo. There is no doubt that the materials, space and overall quality of the Sonata cabin have improved for 2015.

As for tech specs in the Sonata, it is completely dependent on the trim level that you go with to determine how good your features will be. The lower trim levels get a basic radio, CD player, USB port and Bluetooth with audio streaming. Moving up in trims can deliver an all-new infotainment system showcased via an eight-inch touchscreen display. The system includes navigation, smartphone-app capability and much more.

Under the hood of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a 2.4-litre Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine paired with a 35-kilowatt electric motor. The engine produces 159 horsepower on its own, which is elevated to 199 in combination with the battery. The combo also generates 154 pound-feet of torque. This hybrid is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission, with fuel economy ratings of 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 5.9 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway.

Overall, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a great option for those looking for a stylish and smart car at an affordable price. The Sonata Hybrid definitely will fit the needs of many midsize sedan buyers, while also offering a lot of value in the form of its superb efficiency ratings.

Power and Performance:

A 2.4-liter four-cylinder rated at 185 hp and 178 pound-feet of torque powers the SE, Sport and Limited models. All Sonatas are front-wheel drive, and all engines except the Eco's are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Sonata SE has an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29 mpg combined (25 city/37 highway). The Sport and Limited trims are slightly less at 28 mpg combined (24/35).

Interiors and Special Features:

The Sonata SE is fairly basic inside, but materials and build quality are improved over those in the base trim level from last year's Sonata. With their plusher door trim and additional cabin accents, the higher trim levels compare pretty well to those of segment rivals. Not surprisingly, the Limited trim, with its available two-tone color schemes and convincing wood grain trim, is particularly appealing. The Sport 2.0T features heavily bolstered sport seats for added lateral support during spirited back-roads drives.

Safety features:

Standard safety features on every 2015 Hyundai Sonata include antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag.
