Bob Howard Hyundai invites you to compare the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq vs Sonata Hybrid side-by-side. Review the performance specs and features of this popular matchup and discover which is best for you.
The reasons to get a hybrid used to be purely practical, then Hyundai showed up. We’ve never been comfortable with just “good enough”, so we stacked our group of 2020 Hybrids with the top of the line in the latest state-of-the-art safety specs and new age luxuries available right now. If you’re in the market for fuel mileage that makes no sacrifice in style, Hyundai has two excellent options for you to choose from this Spring: the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited, which is currently scheduled to be released soon, and the current 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Limited which has already been released. The 2020 Sonata Hybrid was our brand’s first hybrid vehicle ever to be sold in the US. It first debuted in 2011 and it has been popular since then. The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Limited is Hyundai’s Hybrid hatchback that first released in 2016 and suddenly caught attention for its unmatched fuel efficiency.

Let’s get right into how these two Hybrids are powered. The 2020 Ioniq Hybrid Limited uses a 1.6 GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine making an electric-gas combined 139 horsepower and 125 lb-ft or torque. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited boasts a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder and a 39-kW electric motor which generates a powerful 192 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque. Both feature a hybrid starter-generator and 270-volt lithium-ion polymer battery. One of the big differences between both hybrids is that the 2020 Sonata Hybrid offers available solar roof panels which charge the batteries, getting enough electric power to increase driving range by about 2 miles every day. Hyundai estimates you could get as much as 700 extra miles of battery power per year. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is expected to be able to drive 680 miles on just one tank of gas. Both Hyundai hybrid models have the additional bonus of a quiet cabin on a long trip.
Hyundai was done with Hybrids being unexcited. We designed both the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the 2020 Ioniq Hybrid to shine and captivate with a sporty lean into luxury. Hyundai categorizes the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid as a hybrid hatchback. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is described as a sedan. Both vehicles however, feature spacious cargo room and 4 doors. Inside the cabins you’ll find a long list of comfort features. The 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited features heated and ventilated leather-trimmed front seats, a heated steering wheel, and hidden exterior lighting so beautifully integrated, you won’t even see they’re there until you turn them on. Both models feature LED exterior headlamps and taillights for more than enough visibility on the road ahead. The Hyundai Ioniq features a power tilt-and-slide sunroof and 60/40 split-folding rear seatback. The main difference between these two models is the optional solar roof panels available only for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Due to this technologically advanced feature, the addition of the solar roof panels means – no sunroof. But, the sacrifice of the sunroof is overshadowed by the free power you get in its place and the bragging rights owning solar panels brings.
As we said before, the 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited will offer available solar roof panels which are estimated to generate up to 700 extra miles of battery power per year. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid features a cool LCD color cluster at 12.3-inches and dual-camera blind-spot monitors with touchscreen navigation, and a wireless phone charging station. The 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited will come standard with Hyundai Digital Key which lets your cell phone into your key giving you the ability to remotely lock and unlock your vehicle and start the engine. The vehicle will even automatically adjust to your preferred mirror and seat settings. The Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Limited has this as well – we call it IMS, or Integrated Memory System, which automatically adjusts to the drivers’ preferred settings for seat positioning and side mirrors. Both the 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited and 2020 Ioniq Hybrid Limited features one of the most advanced safety feature combinations available which include Blind Spot and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Driver Attention Warning. Though the 2020 Sonata Hybrid is not officially available as of this writing, it is expected to feature all the same amazing safety features Hyundai has become known for. In true Hyundai fashion, we pushed the envelope to impress and innovate with these two cutting edge Hybrid models. Whether you’re seeking for fuel efficiency with more power, or just a Hybrid that doesn’t resemble a Hybrid, both the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited and the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Limited are amazing choices to consider.
