Steele South Loop 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 drive a hybrid used to be purely practical, then along came Hyundai. We’ve never been comfortable settling for “good enough”, so we packed our line-up of Hyundai Hybrids with the best of the best in the latest modern safety technology and modern luxuries available today. If you’re searching for fuel efficiency that makes no sacrifice in design, Hyundai has two excellent options for you to choose from this Spring: the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited, which is supposed to be released soon, and the current 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Limited. The 2020 Sonata Hybrid was the brand’s first hybrid vehicle 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 debuted in 2016 and immediately caught attention for its unmatched fuel mileage.

Let’s dive right into how these two Hybrids perform. The 2020 Ioniq Hybrid Limited uses a 1.6 GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine making an electric-gas combined 139 hp and 125 lb-ft or torque. The 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited boasts a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder and a 39-kW electric motor which generates a powerful 139 lb-ft of torque and 192 hp. Both have a 270-volt lithium-ion polymer battery and a hybrid starter-generator. One of the key differences between these two 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 Sonata Hybrid is estimated to be able to take a journey for 680 miles on just one gas tank. Both Hyundai hybrid vehicles feature the additional bonus of a quiet cabin on a long ride.
Hyundai was tired of Hybrids being boring. We designed both the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid to shine and charm with a sporty lean into luxury. Hyundai categorizes the 2020 Ioniq Hybrid as a hybrid hatchback. The 2020 Sonata Hybrid is listed as a sedan. Both models however, feature 4 doors and spacious cargo room. Inside the cabins you’ll find a large amount of comfort features. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited features ventilated and heated leather-trimmed front seats, a heated steering wheel, and hidden exterior lighting so beautifully placed, you won’t notice they’re there until you turn them on. Both cars feature LED exterior taillights and headlamps for more than enough visibility on the road ahead. The 2020 Ioniq features a 60/40 split-folding rear seatback and power tilt-and-slide sunroof. The main difference between these two vehicles is the available solar roof panels available only on the 2020 Sonata Hybrid. Due to this cutting-edge feature, the addition of the solar roof panels means – no sunroof. But, the sacrifice of the sunroof is overshadowed by the free power you gain from it and the bragging rights owning solar panels brings.
As mentioned before, the 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited will offer optional solar roof panels which are expected to generate as much as 700 extra miles of battery power per year. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid features a sleek LCD color cluster at 12.3-inches and touchscreen navigation system on the dash with dual-camera blind-spot monitors, and a wireless phone charging station. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited will come ready with Hyundai Digital Key which transforms your cell phone into your key giving you the ability to remotely lock and unlock your vehicle and start your engine. The vehicle will even automatically adjust to your preferred seat and mirror 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. The 2020 Ioniq Hybrid Limited and the 2020 Sonata Hybrid Limited features one of the most advanced safety feature groups available which include Blind Spot and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Driver Attention Warning. Though the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is not officially out there as of this writing, it is expected to feature all the same amazing safety features Hyundai is known for. In true Hyundai fashion, we pioneered to impress and innovate with these two cutting edge Hybrid vehicles. Whether you’re searching for fuel efficiency with more power, or just a Hybrid that doesn’t appear to be a Hybrid, both the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid Limited and the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited are great choices to consider.
