At $25,500, the base Hyundai Sonata SE Hybrid features decent standard equipment including impressive safety features and is priced in line with rival hybrid sedans. The second of two, and top specification Limited trim sets you back $30,500 as standard, but has the option to add a $3,850 Ultimate Package unlocking higher specification infotainment, greater levels of comfort, and the full range of safety features available in one all-inclusive package. Even with the Ultimate Package, the Sonata Hybrid still comes in at less than the top-spec Honda Accord Hybrid.
