Think the only green vehicles out there are hybrid and electric models? Preston Hyundai kindly invites you to think again. For the past seven years in a row, the Hyundai Sonata has snagged a spot on the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy's (ACEEE) list of "Greener Choices."
Wait, isn't there already a Hyundai Sonata Hybrid available, though? That there is. But it's not eligible to be placed on this list... And neither is any other hybrid or electric vehicle for that matter. Rather, this list is exclusive to gasoline-powered vehicles that are widely available and feature automatic transmissions. In other words, it's a list for those who may be on a budget or worried about adopting a new technology too early. And at Preston Hyundai, we think that's a fantastic idea.
As for what specifically landed the Hyundai Sonata a spot on the list this year... Of course, the obvious answer would be its incredible 28 mpg combined rating. But there's more to it than that. When considering each contender for the list, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy also knows that there's more to being a "Greener Choice" than simply offering great fuel economy. Rather, they also consider other aspects... The total package, if you will. And the consensus is that the Hyundai Blue Link infotainment system, seven-inch touch screen, and other options make for one quality option that will relieve the pain that many drivers feel at the pump.
