2016 Hyundai Sonata Redesign

Design changes won’t be too big on new Hyundai Sonata comparing to current model. However, it was announced that two new color patterns get into palette. These are called Graphite Blue Pearl and Seaport Mist. Seats could be purchased in blue color and all these options are available only for hybrid variant. There will be slight modification on the fascia and new wheel could arrive with 2016 Sonata.

The award-winning design of the latest Sonata is enhanced by a series of functional changes to the front and rear fascias for the 2016 Sonata Hybrid that highlight its efficiency and the advanced technology below the surface. These visual changes also lower the coefficient of drag to an exceptionally low 0.24; the lowest in its class and identical to the Tesla Model S. Visual changes to the Hybrid’s exterior include a unique larger grille, front and rear bumpers, front fenders, front and rear lights, chrome side sill moldings, Hybrid badging and new wheels. A distinctive instrument cluster with color LCD multi-purpose display provides Hybrid drivers with additional information about the hybrid system’s operation.

2016 Hyundai Sonata Specs

The first thing you’ll notice about the new Sonata Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid is that once again, they get some unique styling cues to separate them from the non-hybrid Sonata models. There are different wheels, and revised front and rear fascias.

These are both to help with aerodynamics and set the hybrid models apart from the non-hybrid models. Of course, on the plug-in hybrid models there’s a door for the charging port located on the driver’s side front fender just like the one on the Ford Fusion Energi.

Starting with the 2016 Sonata Hybrid, the fuel-sipping car continues its visual differentiation from the regular car with styling cues designed with aerodynamics in mind. Compared with the regular Sonata, the Sonata Hybrid has a larger front grille and unique bumpers, fenders, and 19-inch wheels. Hyundai says the changes lower the coefficient of drag to 0.24, which is identical to that of the Tesla Model S. Inside, the Sonata Hybrid looks exactly like its gas-powered cousin, save for optional Blue Pearl leather seats. Also like the Sonata, the Hybrid comes with several available safety features such as forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert systems to name a few.

Inside, the hybrid models are basically the same as the regular gasoline-powered Sonatas, aside from a modified gauge cluster with a new color LCD multi-purpose display that shows drivers operating data on the hybrid system. Hyundai notes that the lithium-ion battery pack is now placed below the trunk, which allows for a flat trunk floor as well as available 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

Beginning in the summer, Hyundai will offer the 2016 Sonata hybrid and the 2016 Sonata plug-in hybrid, which gets a larger battery and a more powerful electric motor. These models replace the current Sonata hybrid, which has missed out on the model changeover visited upon the regular Sonatas for 2015. The plug-in version will be sold only in the California-emissions states: California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The regular hybrid will be offered everywhere. Both models will be imported from Korea.

2016 Hyundai Sonata Engine

Petrol engine installed under the hood of the 2016 Hyundai Sonata is 2.0-l four-cylinder unit. This drivetrain will benefit from coupling with electric option, rated at 51 hp. That is pair for hybrid. On the other side, plug-in models get 68 hp rated motor. However, these combinations are good for total of 193 or 202 horsepower. All options are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to front wheels. Getting power from electric motor only, 2016 Sonata plug-in could reach 22 miles. It takes four hours to recharge on 120 V outlet. Plug-in uses 9.8 kWh battery, while hybrid models have 1.6 kWh battery pack, with whom new Sonata can reach 75 mph.

The two hybrids use the same, naturally aspirated, 2.0-liter base engine. It’s coupled to a 51-hp electric motor in the hybrid, while the plug-in hybrid gets a 68-hp motor. Total system power is 193 horsepower or 202 horsepower. Both models use a six-speed automatic transmission.

The plug-in can travel up to 22 miles on electricity only; recharging its 9.8-kWh lithium-polymer battery pack takes five hours on a regular 120-volt outlet, a time that can be halved by plugging it into a 240-volt Level 2 charging station. The regular hybrid, which can travel at speeds up to 75 mph on battery power alone, is fitted with a 1.6-kWh battery pack, which now is packaged under the trunk floor.

While the Sonata hybrid is rated at 39/44 mpg (city/highway), the plug-in hybrid is expected to achieve 93 MPGe combined, or 38/43 mpg in a charge-sustaining mode. By comparison, the last-gen Sonata hybrid got 36/40 mpg, while the surprisingly good 2015 Sonata Eco gets 28/38 mpg from its 178-hp 1.6-liter turbo four without electrification.
