Updated Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Delayed

Hyundai may be launching its seventh-generation Sonata as we speak, but the hybrid version won’t be here until later this year or early next year.

The company is instead calling its present-generation hybrid Sonata a 2015 model year, and lining it up alongside the newer models with updates.

Hyundai did revise the hybrid Sonata in 2013 after it was found to have exaggerated fuel economy numbers which were updated in 2012.

Competition this year may also come from Hyundai’s new Eco model with 1.6-liter turbo, downsized from the Sonata’s 2.4-liter four.
