The gas-powered Hyundai Sonata has responsive handling and delivers a comfortable ride. It earned top scores in Consumer Reports' tests. But the Sonata Hybrid is a different story. Braking distances are considerably longer … And it doesn't do as well in emergency handling … Rik Paul, "The Hybrid's low-rolling-resistance tires help improve fuel economy, but they don't provide as much grip." The Hybrid does get better fuel economy - 33 miles per gallon overall versus 27 for the regular Sonata.4128082
But the Hybrid doesn't transition smoothly between gas and electric power. "The Sonata Hybrid is a disappointment. But it's also an exception. Overall, we've seen real improvement with new Hyundais. They generally perform well and provide good value for the money." The Hyundai Elantra is Consumer Reports' top-rated small car, with its nimble handling and comfortable ride. And the Genesis is the top-rated upscale sedan. It provides most of the benefits of a luxury car for ten-thousand dollars less than its competitors. ."
