Hyundai Debuts Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Updates in Chicago

Every winter, as the Midwest is bombarded by subzero temperatures and relentless snow, the only beacon of light in that icy desert is that auto shows in Detroit and Chicago that give us some of the most exciting automotive news of the year. For example, we were especially thrilled to see the 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and 2018 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid models debut last week at the Chicago Auto Show. The Hyundai Sonata is one of the best-selling automobiles here at Hall Hyundai Chesapeake, so to add some updates to two of the greenest vehicles in the lineup is sure to be a good thing for our customers.

Both Hyundai Sonata iterations have been massively updated, and it starts with the vehicles' aesthetics. Now, the model features upgraded front and rear fascia designs, plus a new grille, a redesigned hood, and brand new LED headlights that now feature cornering Dynamic Bending Light to improve visibility when turning corners.

Inside, the entire instrumental panel has been redesigned, as has the steering wheel, which can be transformed into a heated steering wheel as an optional add-on. Also, for the sake of convenience, there is a rear USB charging port for kids with devices that need some juice, while navigation-equipped vehicles come standard equipped with Qi wireless phone charging, which doesn't require any cords at all.

And, of course, the drivetrains still are incredibly efficient, which is the entire point. The hybrid offers competitive efficiency numbers in its segment, with an estimated range of 650 miles during normal driving conditions, while the Plug-In Hybrid version of the car can travel up to 27 miles on pure electricity without using a drop of gas.

These vehicles will find their way to Hall Hyundai Chesapeake later this year, but it sure is good to see some great new updates in the dead the winter, isn't it?
