Options: With a standout design; perky performance; great gas mileage; and exceptional value for the money, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS is one of the best buys among mid-size sedans. The 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS still turns heads, even in its third year on the market, since a 2011 redesign traded in bland, upright mid-size sedan lines for totally new and remarkably swoopy exterior styling. With much-improved reliability, the current Sonata is at last what Hyundai's been aiming for: a genuinely competitive entry in the important mid-size sedan category. Hyundai wants to make it nothing less than the best family sedan on the market--and the competition is hardly standing still--the current car gets them much closer to the goal. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the 2013 Sonata has a lot going for it. We see elements of Hyundai's trend-setting 'fluidic design' in several rival models, as well as other, more recent Hyundai vehicles. The Sonata's dramatic shapes continue into the cabin, almost to finer effect--its functionality isn't tripped up by the swoopy lines that Hyundai has formed into its center stack or door panels. From dark horse to tough competitor, the 2013 Sonata is let down only by its mediocre handling and refinement, that's below the best in the class. Even in the base model, a 2013 Sonata is a solid choice if you prize fuel economy and features received for money spent. It competes with the two best-selling mid-size sedans--the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord--as well as Ford's all-new, elegant, and very well-received 2013 Fusion sedan. Other contenders include the Nissan Maxima, Chevy Malibu, Kia Optima (related under the skin to the Hyundai), and perhaps the Mazda 6, Subaru Legacy, and Volkswagen Passat. Review continues below:>/b> With its new design in 2011 came a major upgrade in engineering refinement. A new lineup of direct-injection four-cylinder engines—no six is offered--combines with a lighter body structure to give the Sonata V-6 performance and up to 42 mpg/Cdn in base form. Even the upscale 2.0T turbo model gets up to 40 mpg/Cdn highway. Most Sonatas come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, making up to 200 horsepower, with a six-speed automatic transmission. The automatic is perfectly appropriate for the class, and is a responsive, seamless gear-changer. Step up to the 2.0T model and you get a somewhat smaller 2.0-liter engine, with a twin-scroll turbocharger, providing 274 horsepower. Its 269 lb-ft arrives low in the power band, which thankfully helps this engine work very well with the automatic transmission (the only way to get it). And it mostly skips the turbo lag completely, and succeeds as the more economical parallel to upscale V-6 models. The most economical powertrain option, however, comes in the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. A single electric motor is sandwiched between the 2.4-liter engine and a modified six-speed automatic transmission, with a lithium-polymer battery pack, storing energy from engine overrun and regenerative braking and returning it as needed to power the car on electricity alone or to assist the engine with more torque. Hyundai has tuned the hybrid system to let the Sonata Hybrid run on battery power alone at highway speeds--reasoning that U.S. drivers spend more than half their miles at speeds above 54 mph/Cdn. After driving the 2013 Sonata Hybrid, we can say it's a definite improvement on the first two years of Sonata Hybrid. It's better insulated, the blending of the engine, electric power, and regenerative braking is smoother, and the car is considerably less lurchy, under quick power transitions. Hyundai says this version will hit 60 mph in 9.2 seconds, and the EPA rates its gas mileage at 43 mpg/Cdn city, 48 mpg/Cdn highway.
