2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid
This year both the Hyundai Sonata and its hybrid counterpart have been completely overhauled as the nameplate enters its eight generation. The Sonata itself has been around since all the way back in 1985, while the Sonata joined the lineup in 2011. Now, both vehicles are more modern and stylish than ever, presenting a striking a sophisticated exterior profile. The Sonata Hybrid is more efficient than ever and is poised to really establish dominance in the midsize hybrid sedan marketplace, one of the steepest hybrid segments there is. We thought we’d see how the new 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid measures up to another member of the segment by pitting it against the 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid.
Within the table above we looked at a few of the most crucial specifications to consider when shopping for a hybrid sedan: fuel economy ratings, power ratings and space. Glancing through the table, it becomes quickly evident that while the two vehicles are similar, there isn’t much competition between them. Let’s take a look through starting from the top.
We looked first at fuel efficiency, arguably the most important aspect of any hybrid vehicle. While driving through the city, the Sonata Hybrid achieves an extra seven miles per gallon and that already-large advantage only increases by hopping onto the highway, bumping up to 13 mpg. Typically, with efficiency advantages like this, a vehicle will sacrifice power. That’s not the case here, as the Hyundai sedan also generates an extra 4 horsepower more than the Fusion Hybrid. That’s not a huge advantage, you might not even notice it driving the two vehicles back to back, but it is there nonetheless.
Finally, that brings us to space. The Sonata Hybrid offers an extra 3.8 cubic feet of room in its trunk, which is quite a large bit of extra space.
