Hyundai Motor Company’s Sonata 2.4 petrol engine now achieves a 4.5 star Green Vehicle Guide (GVG) rating.
Minor modifications were implemented in December 2008 production, further reducing emissions and resulting in an improved air pollution rating - this has boosted the overall score.
The Hyundai Sonata 2.4 petrol engine now ranks amongst the greenest cars in the GVG’s large segment, offering both prospective private and fleet buyers a greener choice.
The GVG is a government-run online information service that provides details of the environmental performance of all new vehicles sold in Australia. The overall vehicle star rating is based on the sum of the air pollution and greenhouse ratings. Equal weighting is given to both these ratings to arrive at a combined GVG rating (out of 20), which then is translated into the star rating. The more stars, the more environmentally friendly the vehicle, with 5 stars being the maximum.
Hyundai is committed to improving the environmental performance of its range. The Sonata is also available with a 2.0 litre CRDi turbo-Diesel engine.
