Hyundai Motor America has announced pricing for the 2014 Sonata Hybrid.
The 2014 Sonata Hybrid starts with an MSRP of $26,000 for the Sonata Hybrid and $30,750 for the Sonata Hybrid Limited. Freight Charges are $810 and not included in the prices above.
Hyundai Motor America said it will continue to offer its Hybrid Lifetime Battery Warranty on the 2014 Sonata Hybrid, complementing the 10-year powertrain warranty.
The Sonata Hybrid relies on the company’s Hybrid Blue Drive architecture, which includes a 35 kilowatt electric motor and a 47 kilowatt lithium polymer battery pack. The Hybrid Blue Drive system is still paired to a 2.4-liter Theta II four-cylinder engine that runs on an Atkinson cycle and six-speed hybrid automatic transmission. In total the powertrain generates 199 combined net horsepower.
Hyundai said the body of the 2014 Sonata Hybrid remains unchanged, but still features the exterior that sets it apart from other Sonatas. The combination of a re-shaped front and rear fascias with a deeper air dam, extended rocker panels and lower drag wheels allow the vehicle’s drag coefficient to stand at 0.25.
The Sonata Hybrid is rated by the EPA at 36 city, 40 highway, 38 combined while the Limited version is rated at 36 city, 40 highway and 37 combined.
At the same time, Hyundai Motor Co. previewed the soon-to-be-launched redesigned Sonata with the release of its first official exterior rendering. The Korean version of the next-gen Sonata is scheduled to make its world-premiere later this month in Korea, while the U.S. Sonata will be shown for the first time in April during the New York International Auto Show.
