What You Have to Get From 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

Starting here with the front, we do still have a Hyundai signature cool looking daytime running lights. That carries over from the all-new model but right here is where it’s going to change this is all-new for the Sonata Hybrid you have this bar design. In the actual grille and this piece right there, this chrome piece is entirely new for the hybrid. It gives it a bold and distinctive look we a massive fan of it.

As well now moving on from that, we do have specific hybrid wheels on this model. So, we do have the aerodynamic design; these are 17-inch alloy wheels, and we have little poor little vortexes in them as well as a beautiful contrast look, but moving up, this is really where you’re going to start to see some cool features. It’s not a hybrid, and that is the solar roof. I’ve never seen this on any mainstream vehicle, and probably the last vehicle you’ve seen that has this is the Frisker Karma. And what this promise is two miles of charge per day, so you’re looking at around 700 miles of just free energy.

That it’s soaking up from the Sun, I’m a unique feature to have, especially in the mixed midsize today at the segment. At the rear, this is going to be mostly the same as the regular Sonata. However, you are going to notice you have this beautiful hybrid bed right there. And it still does have that same distinctive look no other midsize sedan looks like this. You have your entirely LED taillights right here now. This is a hybrid after all, so here in the powertrain is going to see your significant benefits over the regular Sonata model.

It feels very spacious; however, there is one difference that we want to point out, and that’s that there is no moon roof because of that solar roof, so you’re going to pay the price for that extra 2 miles per day by having no moon roof at all on this model.

And the last thing that I do want to cover here is the cargo area. This is going to be just as spacious as the regular model because 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid  has claimed that this is no different than the regular Sonata.
