2011 Sonata Will be Lowest Priced Hybrid Sedan
For those looking to buy an affordable hybrid sedan, next year is looking good.
The 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has only one trim, and it will start at $25,795, excluding a $750 destination charge.
That price makes the Sonata Hybrid the most affordable mid-size hybrid on the market.
It gets an EPA rating of 35 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and comes standard with 16-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlight accents, LED taillights, front fog lights, push-button start, remote keyless entry, dual automatic climate control and a 4.2-inch LCD screen in the gauge cluster.
The Premium Package ($30,795) includes a panoramic sunroof, 17-inch wheels, navigation system, backup camera, premium stereo, leather seats and auto-dimming mirrors.
The Hyundai hybrid will go on sale in January, missing out on the $1,300 federal tax credit that expires Dec 31.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
