The 2022 Hyundai Sonata does a number of things very well. First, the Sonata offers consumers variety. Shoppers can buy a base model SE or next up SEL and not feel bad about the purchase or how much they spent. Also, if consumers want a nicer, more well-equipped Sonata, they can opt for a Limited or fuel-efficient Hybrid Limited. 

Next, the Hyundai Sonata has a respectable predicted reliability score of four out of five according to Consumer Reports. Also, should something go wrong with your Sonata, it may be covered by Hyundai’s class-leading warranty.

Although the lineup incorporates three hybrid models, TrueCar says the most fuel-efficient is the 2022 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Blue. The Hybrid Blue handles city transportation with a gas-sipping 50 mpg. Additionally, the Hybrid Blue cruises efficiently at highway speeds, with an EPA highway rating of 54 mpg. Those two scores combine to give the Hybrid Blue an overall score of 52 mpg, one of the best scores in the segment. 

Is the Hyundai Sonata a safe car?  

In addition to class-leading fuel efficiency and warranty, the 2022 Hyundai Sonata is a safe car. According to Consumer Reports, the new Sonata is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick. Also, the Hyundai model has a five-star overall crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). However, the Sonata failed to achieve perfect scores, having received four stars in the frontal-crash testing.
