Fuel economy is becoming more important as time goes on. With major world events causing gas prices to fluctuate, many are more open-minded about being less reliable on gasoline to power their vehicles. To give more people the opportunity to drive hybrids, Hyundai now offers the Sonata in both traditional gasoline and hybrid powertrains. Fuel economy varies widely between the two as a result.
How Fuel Efficient is the 2021 Hyundai Sonata?
The gasoline-powered 2021 Hyundai Sonata can reach up to 38 miles per gallon (MPG) on the highway. This requires the choice of the right trim, but it is an achievable number and one that shouldn’t be balked at by any means. The SE is the most fuel-efficient, but the SEL, SEL Plus, and Limited trims are not far behind. The N Line has an enhanced powertrain, making it consume more fuel faster, resulting in a maximum highway MPG of just 33.
How Fuel Efficient is the 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid?
There is only one trim to choose from when it comes to the hybrid version of the 2021 Hyundai Sonata. This trim blows all the others out of the water when it comes to fuel efficiency, as you might expect. With 47 MPG combined, 45 MPG in the city, and 51 MPG when driving on the highway. The investment in hybrid technology really pays off when it comes time to fuel up. The Sonata Hybrid also has a solar roof, allowing you to passively charge the battery with the power of the sun.
