Over the past few years, sustainability in auto design has become the major focus of the industry. Hyundai is no exception to this, and the 2012 Sonata Hybrid allows you to do your part in saving the environment while enjoying the unmistakable Sonata style.
The first non-plugin hybrid with next generation lithium polymer battery technology (the most efficient battery on the market today), the Sonata Hybrid delivers an outstanding 40 MPG highway with a best-in-class 206 horsepower. While most hybrids use a nickel-metal hydride battery, the Sonata Hybrid’s polymer gel electrolyte battery allows for a thinner and lighter casing, which means more cargo and interior volume. This battery delivers the same power with 25 percent less weight, takes up 40 percent less volume and gives 10 percent more efficiency.
However, it’s not just what’s under the hood that matters. The Sonata Hybrid is the first of its kind that’s every bit as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. The design is only slightly different than the standard Sonata, yet still manages to achieve an industry-low 0.25 coefficient of drag. LED headlight accents, a panoramic sunroof, the unique front grille and many more features all create the distinct Sonata style that you’ve grown to love.
While you’re protecting the environment, you’ll be able to shield yourself from ultraviolet rays with the Sonata Hybrid’s solar control windows. This helps to keep the cabin cool, which means you don’t have to expend as much energy on climate controls inside.
As you enjoy your smooth, sustainable drive, you’ll be spoiled by the array of amenities at your disposal. The AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system in the vehicle comes standard with six speakers and XM Satellite Radio. You can use built-in iPod/USB jacks to access all of your favorite music. If you have to take calls while on the road, you can do it hands-free with integrated Bluetooth technology.
The navigation system allows you to get to where you need to go with simple directions, and can also direct you to points of interest along the way. Finally, enjoy the comfort offered by outstanding interior volume, a heated driver’s seat and cushions meant to create the most soothing driving experience possible.
Going “green” doesn’t have to be a fashion statement, but with the Sonata, a little bit of style certainly doesn’t hurt. Come out to Chico Nissan Hyundai to get a close-up look at the 2012 Hyundai Sonata today!
