Weeks ago, Hyundai provided us a 2016 Sonata Hybrid Limited to use for Sugar’s weekend adventure. It’s our first time to drive a hybrid car, and it was very interesting. On this post, instead of discussing dog-friendly features of 2016 Sonata Hybrid Limited, I would like to share 5 Reasons: A Hybrid Car Can Benefit A Dog Owner.
Hyundai provided Golden Woofs a 2016 Sonata Hybrid Limited to test drive in exchange for sharing experience about the vehicle. Golden Woofs only shares information we feel is relevant and useful to our readers.
5 Reasons A Hybrid Car Can Benefit A Dog Owner
1. Save On Gas
We drove the 2016 Sonata Hybrid Limited to Dana Point, CA – Whale Festival. We drove it in both city traffic and highway speeds. It was very quiet. If you are a dog owner that drives mostly on city traffic a hybrid car is beneficial. Every time you stop, the engine shuts down and re-starts when you press the gas again; saving you gas. A hybrid car uses less gasoline than a conventional vehicle—there are times it runs solely on the hybrid’s battery, and sometimes on regular fuel power. We drove over 300 miles and the 2016 Sonata Hybrid Limited still had a considerable amount gas.
Hybrid cars are just as safe to drive as any gasoline-powered cars. Every car manufacturer offers different safety features. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid earned 5/5 for overall crash protection, along with 5-stars for both frontal-impact and side-impact protection. Of course, it’s your responsibility to keep your dog safe in the car, Buckle Up! Sugar uses Sleepypod Clickit!
3. Cash Back for Helping the Environment
Being green in your choice of car can provide you a tax credit and additional local financial perks. Check your state and department of motor vehicles for more information.
4. Fits Lifestyle and Cost-Effective
It is interesting to find out that there are different types of hybrid vehicles; hybrid mid-size cars to hybrid sport-utility. 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid provides cost-effective luxury driving experience.
5. Less Maintenance
According to Edmunds, “Most hybrid cars do not require any additional regular maintenance on the hybrid-specific components.” WOW! Hyundai offers a Lifetime Hybrid Battery Warranty.
“Expanding Hyundai Assurance to include Lifetime Battery Replacement Guarantee was another opportunity for us to demonstrate our confidence in the durability of our product, and pass that peace-of-mind on to our owners.”
