Sonata Hybrid in the Market

Hyundai's first hybrid is impressive in almost every way. I certainly wish it drove better in its thriftiest mode, which owners of competing hybrids generally use. However, in nearly every other area the hybrid version of the Sonata is just as impressive as the regular sedan is in its segment.

No matter its pluses and minuses, though, the Sonata Hybrid's stand-out looks may just draw buyers who've been hesitant to get a hybrid sedan before because the options available just didn't have bold enough styling.
