Ideal Family Hybrid - Excellent balance of comfort, safety and value
My wife and I now own 2 Sonata hybrids - 2011 with 12,000 miles and 2012 with almost 1,000. We liked the first car so much that we purchased a second. What we like: 1) The Sonata hybrid is an extremely comfortable car. We feel that it offers the most room among hybrids priced under $30,000. The ride is exceedingly smooth and quiet. It is joy to transport children and grandchildren - the little ones easily fall off to sleep and the back seat easily and comfortably holds two grandchildren in car seats and their mother (our daughter). 2) This is a great touring car that is ideal for family trips. We easily and comfortably fit 3 adults and 2 children in car seats along with several days luggage. The trunk is not spaceous, but the available space is sufficient to pack suitcases, toys and such. The car is ****** best on the highway and on country roads. 3) The car has a comforting record of safety. My family is precious to me and we chose to forego a Saturn Aura for the Sonata hybrid so that the precious cargo is transported in a very safe car. The handling is sure and the braking true. The car is very able to avoid sudden dangers such as deer bounding out onto the road. 4) After an update of the computer system for the 2011 model, the transitions between EV and gas engine modes became smooth and the low speed hesitancy that Consumers Reports had focused on was gone. The 2012 started out with smooth transitions without hesitancy. The braking was also improved with a free computer upgrade for the 2011 model. 5) The cars get good gas mileage - better if one attends to gentle acceleration and careful use of cruise control. I got 42+ mpg with careful driving in 2011, my wife who does not attend to her mileage values at all got 38-39 mpg in mixed driving that was primarily city. The 2012 is also getting above 42 mpg in mixed driving. 6) The standard features are excellent. The electronic proximity detection systems is a marvel and the Bluetooth is fantastic.
The Sonata Hybrid remains the best large mid-size hybrid sedan - Pleasure
