There are couple of people on this forum who already purchased the 2021 Sonata Hybrid Limited with the solar roof. Those cars get over 50 mpg! My local dealership had couple but sold out during the December 2020 sale. The 2021 Sonata have a very nice interior and much quieter than my wife’s 2013 Sonata Hybrid Limited with Ultimate package and 10+ mpg better economy.My dealership says 4-6 months. Anyone else have any idea? I can't deal with a CVT so must wait for hybrid.
I hope you're right. I've been waiting....waiting....waiting....and waiting. I just had to put a new battery in my 2017 Elantra - I don't want to put anymore money into a vehicle I will be getting rid of. I contacted my sales guy at the dealer today and he said that supposedly, some dealers do have the hybrids already (which I highly doubt since you still can't build them on the Hyundai website) and they are expecting a hybrid Limited in April. I don't even know what pricing will be on it...and he doesn't seem to have much info either but then again, I just texted him. If I have a chance, I'll stop by the dealership over the weekend - it is 40 minutes from me, so it isn't particularly close.Oh it's coming and soon. Just want to know how soon.
So, maybe I should hang onto it for another few years? I was planning on jumping on the hybrid train and really want a hybrid Are you thinking of trading yours in? I have just over 40k on my Elantra - not sure what kind of trade in I will get for it....probably not great. It is funny, because a car that was 4 or 5 years old would have mileage like yours when I used to live in the DC area. Now, I live in East Tennessee and no more heavy commuting!The 2017 Elantra is SUPER reliable. Other than regular maintenance and 3 door lock actuators (they go bad often) have had no issues. I am on my 3rd battery but that is common in the desert. JUST passed 150,000 miles
The hybrid comes with an independent multi-link rear suspension and greater torque. The Limited trim also comes with heated and ventilated front seats. PC magazine has an excellent review of the Hybrid Limited 2021 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid Review.I don't see the appeal of the hybrid on an economy car that gets 31 City/ 41 Highway already. With the extra cost of the hybrid, it would take years to pay off the difference with fuel savings. I can see the reason for hybrids of heavy SUVs or sports cars, definitely a big gas saver.
Its really nice, if you haven't driven a hybrid its a bit to get used to, i went from a 1990 Honda Accord, so its quite the step up.You purchased one? How do you like it?
I’d be interested in what trim you got. Also does it have the decorative circle on the left of the gauge cluster or is it functional? Color?Its really nice, if you haven't driven a hybrid its a bit to get used to, i went from a 1990 Honda Accord, so its quite the step up.
My biggest gripe is that Android Auto isn't widescreen, while Apple Carplay is. I'm hoping its a software issue, but you can't have widescreen android auto.
The car rides on 225/45R 17 tires, i think they should have gone with 16s for the added padding, the ride is a tad stiff at times.
the hybrid system seems to work well, i'm getting 45 mpg on my normal 40 mile 1 way commute driving about like a usually do around 75-80 mph.
while not in sport mode, the car can feel a little sluggish off the line, but this is a commuter car through and through, so its not really designed to be fast off the line.
I got a great deal on mine for 26,500 Net, after doing the math you basically have to get this car for less than 28k, ideally under 27k to save money in the long run over the gas version as others have pointed out.
