COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 13, 2012 – For the seventh consecutive year the Hyundai Sonata was recognized by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) on its annual “Greener Choices” list. The Sonata will be featured in the ACEEE’s Green Book® Online, an annual consumers’ guide to environmentally-friendly cars and trucks.
“Sonata’s acknowledgment as a leader in fuel efficiency for the seventh year in a row only strengthens our commitment to delivering sustainable solutions for consumers,” said John Shon, Sonata Product Manager, Hyundai Motor America. “The Sonata offers class-above interior volume compared to its key competitors and provides the best fuel economy in the EPA Large Car segment with an exceptional 28 mpg combined fuel economy rating.”
The “Greener Choices” list is restricted to widely available gasoline-powered cars and light trucks with automatic transmissions, thus highlighting the widespread availability of environmentally friendly vehicle choices in many segments of the market.
The 2012, Sonata achieves improved fuel economy estimates, incorporates more thoughtful and convenient technology, and adds features to improve the overall vehicle experience. Blue Link®, a full-service telematics offering provides customers with information and access never before found in a Hyundai. New available features such as a larger seven-inch touchscreen navigation with HD Radio Technology® and full panoramic sunroof offer additional amenities within an already well-equipped vehicle.
