For years Toyota has been the benchmark for gas-electric vehicles. Utter the word “hybrid” and the Prius immediately comes to mind. Toyota’s impressive technology has also migrated successfully to several other models in its stable.

Other automakers, however, seem to stumble and fail when attempting to reach up to Toyota’s example; the Ford Fusion fails miserably in achieving its claimed 47 mpg rating in daily driving, and last year’s Sonata Hybrid lacked refinement.

But it seems like Hyundai isn’t easily deterred, as the new 2013 model features serious under-the-hood upgrades and modifications that make it more than just a rival to the Toyota hybrids, but a rival for the lead in its segment.

It looks awesome. I read the Edmunds' review for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and they were impressed. I would consider it in the future.
It's definitely one of the better hybrids out their but it's best to hold off on getting one of these and wait for the long-term reviews so you can really see how they hold up, instead of these 1 week reviews.

We bought a used, red one of these (2013 HSH basic) in April of this year. I concur with the review as well as my 3-month experience with it. Got it at a good price with a good price for my trade-in, at a CarMax after searching for a low mileage red hybrid on carmax.com.

Went with this versus, say, a Prius because of the passenger and trunk space, and good looks. Also researched various reviews before deciding.
