Hyundai's midsize sedan got a freshening for 2018 that's on sale now. It brought new exterior styling, interior refinement and a revamped trim structure. The optional 2.0-liter turbo models now have an eight-speed automatic transmission. A redesign should land in 2019 for the 2020 model year.
Hyundai has added a gasoline-electric hybrid and plug-in hybrid variant to the refreshed 2018 Sonata lineup. The conventional hybrid variant is powered by a 2-liter NU GDI four-cylinder engine and a 38-kilowatt electric motor. The fuel economy of the SE variant, according to internal estimates, is 39 mpg city/45 highway/42 combined, the automaker says. The plug-in hybrid Sonata, with a lithium ion battery pack and capacity of 9.8 kilowatt hours, has an EPA-estimated all-electric range of 27 miles. The plug-in variant, like the conventional hybrid, houses the 2-liter NU GDI engine. Its electric motor is 50 kilowatts, which Hyundai says is 32 percent more powerful than the motor used in the hybrid version. The total system output is 202 hp.
