2018 Hyundai Sonata Review

What do you get when you combine a comfortable spacious interior with cutting-edge technology and top-notch performance? You get the Hyundai Sonata the perfect blend of everything you’re looking for in a mid-size sedan. Choose from seven models starting with the SE and moving up through the top-of-the-line Limited 2.0T. The cabin isn’t just roomy it has class-leading passenger and cargo volume. Front seat or back legs can stretch and shoulders can relax. The 60/40-split folding rear seat adapts to your cargo and the available Smart Trunk means access is easy--just walk up with the key fob in your pocket or purse. And the technology doesn’t stop there. The infotainment system brings Apple CarPlay Android Auto Bluetooth and available navigation—all controlled by real knobs on the dash and steering wheel or by your very own voice. And with three engines and transmissions to choose from plus an available sport-tuned suspension you’ll enjoy every aspect of every drive. Choose from a variety of colors and options and build a Sonata that’s all yours. The Hyundai Sonata. Refreshingly complete.
Your Hyundai Sonata is loaded with technology. Bluetooth hands-free calling Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard equipment. So is a seven-inch touchscreen. Navigation is available and comes with an eight-inch touchscreen. Forget to roll up the windows? Want your Sonata to be nice and warm—or nice and cool—when you get in? No problem. Hyundai’s Blue Link Connected Car System turns your smartphone or smartwatch into a remote control for your car. The Hyundai Sonata. More technology bang for your buck.
Your Hyundai Sonata is loaded with safety features. Every Sonata comes with a rearview camera stability and traction control systems anti-lock brakes and a complete set of airbags. Want a network of radar sensors and cameras watching out for you when you drive? When you’re changing lanes or backing out of a parking space or just driving down the road? Blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert are standard and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection is available. The Hyundai Sonata. More safety bang for your buck.
With three engines and transmissions to choose from you’ll enjoy every aspect of every drive in your Hyundai Sonata. The cream of the crop is the turbocharged two-liter inline-four and its 8-speed SHIFTRONIC transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. 2.0T models also come with a sport-tuned suspension and a Smart driving mode that adapts to your driving style—holding gears longer and tightening up the steering when you’re feeling adventurous or shifting earlier for better gas mileage when you’re not. The Hyundai Sonata. Its everything you want it to be.
