2016 Hyundai Sonata is currently one of the most sought after cars in the United States. And with good reason. This vehicle is stylish, powerful, and comfortable. While this vehicle was not released in the United States when the models were first released, it has quickly become one of the most popular vehicles on the market.
2012 Hyundai Sonata
The most obvious highlight of the 2012 Hyundai Sonata is its power and performance. It offers a combination of fuel-efficiency, power, design, and performance that sets it apart from most mid-size sedans. One of the best features of the Hyundai Sonata is its two-seat seating configuration. Even though the front seat remains largely unchanged from the sedan versions, the back seat is now equipped with a new air conditioning system called Accessory-Air Wash. A new floor mat also has been added to the car.
2014 Hyundai Sonata
Despite its size, the 2014 Hyundai Sonata manages to offer ample room in both the front and rear seats. The front seat can be lowered to allow more cargo room while the rear seat now has a new softer, flat surface to reduce the noise from the back seats when the vehicle is going downhill. A new feature in the rear seat is the LATCH system, which helps keep your child in the rear seat until they are old enough to handle the controls themselves.
2020 Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai has improved the ride quality of its lineup of sedans. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata has received an award for ride quality in the Compact Class. That means the sedan is good at both acceleration and the handling of rough roads. The sedan’s steering is quite balanced and responsive, allowing the driver to fully control the operation of the entire car. The Sonata’s low profile makes it very easy to shift gears, although some drivers might not find the gearshift knob accessible with the small keyhole. The lack of an auto-shift keeps the Sonata a step lower in terms of gearlever access.
Another area in which the Hyundai Sonata outperforms many competitors is on the highway. Even on winding mountain roads, the Hyundai Sonata manages to cope well. The ride is not so harsh as you might get from some competitors, although there is nothing wrong with a bit of rattling around in the passenger cabin. Still, the Sonata’s ride quality is not as severe as some competitors like the Honda Civic, and the base trim level is quite affordable.
Safety is yet another area in which the Hyundai Sonata surpasses many other cars. Its structural steel front bumper can stop or protect whoever is under it from serious injury in case of an accident. The base model comes standard with three-point seatbelts in the front, but if you upgrade to the PowerTrac trim level you get another set of three-point seatbelts. The traces also feature anti-lock brakes that help prevent the driver and passengers from being ejected in the event of a crash. And if you are in a crash the Hyundai Sonata has what is called an emergency assistance assist system that will pull you out of the crash safely.
In the area of technology inside the new Hyundai Sonata, there are plenty of welcome advancements. The touch screen is a welcome improvement over the previous generation’s menu system, and even the old touchscreens are easier to use than ever thanks to the new 7-inch touchscreen that comes standard on all Hyundai Sonata vehicles. The new menu system includes a new voice command dialing system that is aimed at simplifying the operation of the vehicle’s navigation system.
All in all, the new Hyundai Sonata is a nice looking, roomy, and affordable midsize sedan with the excellent overall quality. If you want to have a practical, roomy vehicle that is easy to drive and maintain, then the Hyundai Sonata is a great choice. It has all of the luxury features of other luxury vehicles at a price that most can afford. However, if you are looking for something a little more sporty and dynamic, you might want to check out the new Dodge Ram line of vehicles. They currently have a very nice midsize car that offers lots of class and performance.
