Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2019 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is a mid-size sedan that seats up to five. It comes in gas, gas-electric hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. The gas version offers three engines: a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder; a 178-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder; and a 245-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

Both the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models have a 154-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but while the hybrid has a 1.76-kilowatt-hour battery, the plug-in hybrid has a larger 9.8-kwh battery pack. The plug-in hybrid can travel up to 28 miles on electric power alone, the EPA says.

Sonata competitors include the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. A redesigned Sonata is slated to debut as a 2020 model.

What’s New on the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?

The Sonata Hybrid Limited adds automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, and an electronic parking brake.

What Features in the 2019 Hyundai Sonata Are Most Important?

Standard features include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split, folding backseat, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth, and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.

Upscale options include hands-free trunk operation, LED headlights and taillights, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, wireless device charging, navigation with a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and an Infinity premium stereo.

Should I Buy the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?

The Sonata is quiet, comfortable and has user-friendly technology, but its base four-cylinder is just adequate, and the sedan’s interior quality could be better. The availability of efficient hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions is a plus, but there are some good mid-size sedans available — it’s worth your while to check out the competition and find the one that best fits your needs.

5.0

Reliability not up to my expectations.

Within 2 years we’ve had the vehicle in for service it’s been in the shop 4 separate times for for different reasons. The last problem required towing to the dealership. All issues were handled satisfactory, but what lies ahead once I’m past my warranty limit - the last repair alone would have cost me $1500 - 2000 out of pocket if not still under warranty.

5.0

First purchase

This will be a great fit for my family. I’m looking forward to recommending friends and family to easterns. Didn’t think it would be this easy.

5.0

Love everything about it.

Comfortable drive; incredibly quiet; just enough bells and whistles but not more than I need; pretty styling. Love the ice blue color. Great mileage, of course.
