The Hyundai Sonata Is Redesigned for Domination

One of the stronger showings in the midsize sedan market, the Hyundai Sonata recently got a complete overhaul to usher in its eighth production cycle. With a four-trim range that includes the SE, SEL, SEL Plus, and Limited, the Sonata is better than ever before.

Design

In recent years, Hyundai has striven to provide a sportier, more aggressive appearance for the Sonata. That's more evident than ever with this eighth-gen debut model, which is characterized by a large trapezoidal grille, a sloping hood, and roofline, daytime running lights that stretch deep into the fenders. In addition, this Sonata is longer and lower than previous models.

New Features

The Sonata has two brand-new technologies: Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) and the Hyundai Digital Key app. RSPA allows you to be outside the car and enable it to move forward or backward by pressing buttons on the key fob. And the Digital Key app permits you to use your Android smartphone as a key, with future plans for Hyundai and Apple to expand compatibility with iPhones.

Performance

The SE and SEL are powered by a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which produces 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque and provides the Sonata's best EPA estimates: at 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

  
The turbocharged 1.6-liter I4 on the SEL Plus and Limited flips around the output specs, providing 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Both engines provide decent acceleration, and they are each hitched to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Comfort and Convenience

Entertainment on the Hyundai Sonata is provided by a six-speaker stereo system, which combines elements such as AM/FM radio, a USB port, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and an 8-inch touchscreen.

Upgrades include the following:

  • 12.3-inch LCD digital instrument cluster
  • Hyundai Digital Key
  • Wireless device charging
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror with a garage-door opener
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation
  • 12-speaker Bose stereo system
  

Interior

With seating for five people, the Hyundai Sonata has a 6-way adjustable driver's seat and a 4-way adjustable front-passenger seat, with the 60/40 split-folding rear seatback to expand cargo room when needed. You will need to go for a trim above the base-level SE to increase your chances of getting the following:

  • Front-seat power adjustability
  • Leather seat trim
  • Heating and ventilation on the front seats
  • Driver-seat memory

Safety

Even at the base level, the Hyundai Sonata is stuffed with driver-assistance features, which include forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane following assist, driver attention warning, smart cruise control with stop-and-go technology, and high beam assist.

For restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, the Sonata provides dual frontal airbags, a knee airbag for the driver, two side-impact airbags, and two side curtain airbags. Also present are ABS to prevent wheel lockup when abruptly applying the brakes, hill start assist to prevent rolling down when switching from the brakes to the gas pedal, a rearview camera for monitoring what's behind you when backing out of somewhere, and the combination of electronic stability control and traction control to keep your tires planted on the roads of Pittsburgh, PA and Aliquippa, PA.

Upgrading in trim increases the number of driver-assistance technologies, which include:

  • Blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Highway drive assist
  • Parking collision-avoidance assist
