2019 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid
Although the iconic Hyundai Sonata has been around since 1985, it wasn’t until 2008 at the tail end of the model’s fifth generation that the Sonata Hybrid was first introduced. It then joined the lineup in 2011 for the sixth generation and has made an excellent hybrid sedan option on the lineup ever since. We thought we’d see how it measures up to another iconic sedan model’s hybrid option by pitting the 2019 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
Looking at the table above gives you a good idea of the Camry Hybrid’s experience benefit. It was introduced two years earlier than the Sonata Hybrid and joined the lineup only a year after its inception, giving it four or five extra years of experience on the lineup. Not to mention, Toyota is the godfather of hybrid technology. However, if you can overlook the deficits of the table above, you’ll realize that the Sonata Hybrid is just as viable an option in the midsize hybrid sedan segment as the Camry Hybrid, and we’ll show you why.
The Sonata Hybrid Limited trim level comes with several driver-assistive safety technologies as standard features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control with start/stop and an Electronic Parking Brake with auto vehicle hold. These features along with the vehicle’s overall architecture and other, more traditional safety features helped the vehicle secure a TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the IIHS, which is a huge deal.
Furthermore, all Hyundai vehicles offer several things that other brands can’t compete with. Starting with the Limited trim level, the vehicle comes with Blue Link Connected Car Services as well as 3 complimentary years of the service completely free. Plus, Hyundai offers America’s Best Warranty. You’ll have a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, a Lifetime Hybrid Battery Warranty, 5-year Unlimited 24/7 Roadside Assistance and so much more with Owner Assurance.
