What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2014 Sonata: For 2014, the
Sonata get's a midcycle refresh. The refresh brings on a host of new
updates including revised styling cues, a refreshed interior design, as
well as more technological features. The Sonata was never really stylish
than the rest of the competition until Hyundai rolled out this generation
in mid 2010 as a 2011 model. Power comes from a 2.4 L 4-Cylinder or you can
opt for a 2.0 L turbo 4-Cylinder that is
basically comparable to a V6 all made into a 6-Speed Automatic. On the
interior you will find it to be very user friendly and stylish too with
many standard and optional features, but headroom in the rear can be tight
for some occupants. The styling is still one of the best in the segment
with a sea of boring looking midsize sedans like the Camry and Accord.
Competitors range from the Accord, Camry, Malibu, Fusion and many more we
advise you take a look at one of these many midsize sedans if you are
shopping in this class. So is it still competitive? Yes it is, however
saying that it's best in class is going a little to far as the Sonata has
many great competitors that are just as good and if not better than the
Sonata, but with this said it still make a solid middle down the road

[cc] 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Road Test Review - First Drive
Adam Barrera at highmileage.org evaluates the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
sedan and places it in the context of its competition. Let me know what you
think -- start a conversation with me on Twitter.
In a market saturated with low-denominator midsize sedans that try
just hard enough to earn buyers' attention, Hyundai has taken a
radical tack with the wildly styled Sonata Hybrid.
Manufacturers obsessed with selling vehicles in bulk tend toward
conservative exterior designs.
Hyundai, on the other hand, has retained bravery.
Even the base Sonata wears daring sheetmetal strakes and a swooping
The Hybrid's unique front air dam allows for an aerodynamically tight
grille-less hood design.
Blue logos and clear taillamps seem to be staples of hybrid
It also seems as if every hybrid must have a gimmicky display to
reassure owners that they are,
indeed, helping the planet.
Four different screens in the navitainment system can be used to
monitor the driver's behavior, the flow of energy to and from the
wheels, and fuel economy statistics.
Only the last two screens provide useful information at a glance.
An Eco Guide needle swings to indicate live fuel consumption.
A traditional tachometer would be more useful, but, unfortunately,
there's not even an option to monitor engine speed through the driver
This Blue Drive button on the steering wheel seems to have no effect
other than turning the driver information center blue.
One screen 'grades' drivers' habits via an Eco Score,
which never exceeded nine during this test.
No matter. In heavy Chicago traffic, the Sonata returned an average of
40 miles per gallon
by aggressively cutting fuel during deceleration
and staying in EV mode until the battery pack reached less than
At freeway speeds, the Sonata often cycles into pure EV mode.
Hyundai says their hybrid will enter EV mode at speeds of up to 62
miles per hour,
but this pre-production car entered EV mode when coasting down from
speeds of over 70 mph.
On the road, powertrain transitions are seamless.
At parking lot speeds and at idle, however, the Sonata whirs, pops and
buzzes in a cacophony that, again, probably serves to remind its
drivers that they are indeed inside a hybrid. Imperceptibility was
once the goal of any hybrid vehicle.
Now that driving a hybrid is a social statement,
certain types of aural feedback may possess an important sort of novelty.
Otherwise, the hybrid shares the base Sonata's quirks and assets.
The steering wheel is admirably designed with a sense of motion,
but curiously, the leather wrap doesn't cover the touch points at 9 and 3.
The same dynamism is captured in the design of the center stack,
but the navitainment system cannot split radio and map data.
Hyundai's famous premium leather grain is perforated to stay
comfortable during long roadtrips.
The battery pack does annex some trunk space,
which leaves a very narrow pass-through slot to accommodate long cargo.
However, passenger volume remains unchanged from the standard model.
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid makes sense for midsize sedan buyers
who spend lots of time in bumper-to-bumper city traffic.
However, like most other hybrids, high-speed commuters may find that the
conventional non-hybrid Sonata delivers similar highway fuel
efficiency -- at less cost.
