Introduction

I have the Sonata Hybrid Limited with Advanced Package. I love this hybrid system over the Toyota systems because of the 6-sp auto vs CVT. The engine never whines when I need more power, and it seems programed to drive in Electric mode more often. I also get better mileage than I did in my Passat TDI or my previous car to that, a Prius v5. It's very quiet, very roomy especially in the back seat, and the flat trunk allows me to use all the space to the back seat versus the odd-shaped trunk in the Camry/Accord/Fusion hybrids. This hybrid vehicle is flying under the radar for most people and they don't realize what they're missing. I know, I've driven all of them out there before choosing to buy one.I can average almost 44mpg without modifying mydriving style.

2016 Hyundai Sonata Love Letter

The Sonata Hybrid provides great sightlines, and with the back-up camera, blind-spot monitor, and rear radar to detect objects when backing out of a parking spot, I'm never have to worry about having a blind spot under most driving conditions. It's not the prettiest car, but it is sleekly styled and aerodynamic.

Conclusion

Pros - great mileage, great warranty, and great value for what you get.
Cons - not the most exciting car to drive, but I enjoy driving it. Seats are not as comfortable compared to the VW Passat, but better than any Toyota vehicle.
