With new models for 2013 like the Ford Fusion EcoBoost and the Chevrolet Malibu Eco, higher mileage ratings are no longer the exclusive domain of the Sonata, but in its most popular form, it remains a standout with 35 mpg highway.

The EPA gives the entry-level Sonata 24/35 mpg with the six-speed automatic. Add on a turbocharger to the automatic-equipped car, and the resulting Sonata 2.0T gets a rating of 22/33 mpg.

The Sonata Hybrid, meanwhile, has been significantly revamped to improve driving feel and fuel economy. It's now rated slightly higher for EPA mileage, at 36/40 mpg or 38 mpg combined. It also has better packaging for its batteries, freeing up another cubic foot of space in the trunk. We'll report back when we've had a chance to drive the latest Sonata Hybrid, and to judge whether its hybrid integration has smoothed out enough for us to recommend it.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a fuel-efficiency standout—and that's on top of the base Sonata's 35-mpg highway rating.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
