If you’re shopping for a new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, you might be surprised to learn of the new car’s pricing. The previous generation Sonata Hybrid’s pricing starts at $29,749 which, when compared to the 2020’s pricing, is one heck of a deal. Hyundai Canada’s decision to limit the 2020 Sonata Hybrid to a single trim explains the difference.
For the 2019, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid was available in three distinct trims when excluding the PHEV iteration. The new 2020 car’s equipment matches that of the previous Ultimate which retailed for $38,099.
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Ultimate includes features such as a 10.25-inch display with navigation, BOSE premium audio with 12 speakers, a 12.3-inch digital cluster, head-up display, and loads more.
The car’s novelty is a new solar roof system is able to charge the vehicle’s 1.62 kWh battery. According to Hyundai, with up to 6 hours of daily charging, the solar roof system should increase annual travel distance by an extra 1,300 km annually. Hyundai ads “subject to varying charging conditions” which means considerably less in Canada.
The new 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Ultimate arrives in showrooms in May.
