The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid was first unveiled at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show and was first available for purchase beginning in early 2011. It is currently one of the most affordable hybrid vehicles on the market and its 2013 facelift saw numerous improvements over the first few years’ of its life. In 2011, the Sonata Hybrid accounted for 20% of all Sonata sales, according to Hyundai, which shows a large interest in the hybrid version of one of their most famous and popular vehicles. Though it has yet to dethrone the popular Toyota Prius, it does rank second in total sales among all hybrid vehicles and is just barely more than the Kia Optima Hybrid. You can also learn more about the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid at Hyundai’s official website.
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid currently comes in two different trim levels, the Hybrid and the Limited. Both vehicles feature the same 2.4L MPI Theta II Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine with Blue Drive parallel hybrid system and 199 net horsepower (straight from Hyundai’s site), but it’s the features (and the prices) that are mainly different. The Hybrid, the lower of the two trims, comes in at $26,000 even and features 16″ alloy wheels, side mirror turn signal indicators, proximity key entry, push start, a tinted front grille, LED interior dome lights, HD Radio technology, and more. The Limited, which comes in at $30,750, features 17″ alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, premium door sill plates, leather seating, and a 7-inch navigation system with a high-resolution display.
The Sonata Hybrid, is, like most vehicles, a standard car, which means that it’ll cost the same as a standard car to ship. Its size and weight are both comparable to many standard sedan-sized vehicles, so really the thing that will affect your price the most when it comes to shipping it will be the pickup and delivery locations – in other words, where you’re shipping from and to. Geographic location, ease-of-access and distance between pickup and delivery locations are crucial to your price and can swing it either way but hundreds of dollars, so keep that in mind. When gathering quotes, make sure to have the city and state for both pickup and delivery; you won’t need specific addresses until you’ve booked your order.
