To say that the debut version of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid in 2011 flopped would be putting it mildly; Critics complained it was painfully obvious the car was a hybrid. But two years later the Korean automaker’s back with a Sonata that’s addressed its issues and hushed the critics. We recently took the Sonata Hybrid on the road and really liked it. But don’t just take our word for it. The New York Daily News also ran the car through its paces and found it not just adequate but impressive. The publication applauds the Sonata Hybrid’s new, smoother transition between fuel sources and braking systems, and even declared the ride quality “better than expected.” Add to that the fact that the vehicle gets 600 miles per tank and you may want to consider whether you need a hybrid!
