An excellent buy

2011 Hyundai Sonata Collin - Richmond, VA 02/26/2015

This model was highly rated by several sources and so far the car has performed well. Hyundai gives one far more features per dollar than almost any other brand. I got more than expected (like heated seats front and rear) and it looks great!. The base 4 cyl. engine doesn't have the grunt I am accustomed to, but is not embarrassing. The only problems so far are (1) that the trunk lids sometimes opens on its own - still trying to solve the problem; (2) The front end is too low and it is easy to scrape it..

Excellent car and great value for the dollar

2013 Hyundai Sonata James - Waleska, GA 01/25/2015

The car's styling is first. Then the quality of fit and finish. Measures up to my wife's Acura. It has a lot of accessories we don't use but suspect we aren't the average customer of today as we are a bit older. Good gas mileage and handled very well. As good as any Japanese or European sports sedan and cost a lot less.

Nice ride, dependable, great car all around

2013 Hyundai Sonata Cynthia Fralick - Jacksonville, FL 09/05/2015

I always thought toyotas,hyundai, Mazda were too small. They actually have a lot of room. The car rides quite and smooth. Great gas milage so far, I have only been inside city limits. Air bags all around, blue tooth, controls on the steering wheel. Pretty nice car.

Hyundai Sonata Overview

The Hyundai Sonata is a midsize sedan that is available in a number of different versions with several trim levels including SE, Sport, and Limited. While this vehicle was originally set apart from its competition almost exclusively because of its superior warranty coverage and lower pricing structure, later generations have also become well known for its luxurious interior. In addition to the ten-year warranty on its engine, the Hyundai Sonata also boasts excellent ratings on its crash tests.

Hyundai Sonata History

Since 1985, the Hyundai Sonata has been produced as a midsize sedan by its Korean maker. With its second generation, in 1988, the car started being imported to other countries, including the United States. It was built on a Mitsubishi Galant platform and featured engineering reminiscent of Mitsubishi. Since its debut, the Hyundai Sonata has undergone seven generations and experienced exceptional, though sometimes spotty, growth in the United States. Some highlights of that growth include the following:

  • In 1990, there were 29,840 Hyundai Sonatas sold in the United States.
  • By 2001, that figure had jumped to 62,385 vehicles.
  • Statistics show that 213,303 Hyundai Sonatas were sold in the United States in 2015.

How It Drives

Part of a passenger's comfort level is the quietness of the cabin. The Hyundai Sonata provides a hushed and smooth ride that envelopes its occupants in a luxurious comfort superior to its class. The inevitable bumps in the road are barely registered as the Hyundai Sonata's smooth damping kicks in. Well-controlled handling and steering mean that the Hyundai Sonata is as balanced during turns as it is along the straight highway.

Used Hyundai Sonata Value

The Hyundai Sonata has significantly improved its value and features across the generations. While the first introduction of the vehicle emphasized its value, later versions also highlighted its comfort and reliability - and for good reason. Whether the Sonata is going to be a family car, a teen's first vehicle, or used to commute, drivers and passengers won't be disappointed in its gas mileage, comfort features, or reliability.

Design & Performance

The Hyundai Sonata offers a plethora of features even on its base model. These include a rear lip spoiler, 16-inch alloy wheels, and automatic headlights. Several different engines were offered, depending on the trim level chosen.

  • SE, Sport, and Limited models were offered with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine.
  • A turbocharged 2.0-liter engine was available with the Sport and Limited trims.
  • The Eco trim level offered a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine.

Powertrain & Engine

The Hyundai Sonata is a front-wheel-drive midsize car that is designed to be comfortable over the long haul. All versions, with the exception of the Eco, are mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. The standard 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine pushes out 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, with it reaching 60 mph from zero in about 8.2 seconds. The EPA estimates that this 2.4-liter engine returns an impressive 25 mpg during city driving and 36 mpg along the highway.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The Hyundai Sonata is an ideal choice for a family car or as transportation during a commute with ample seating for either four or five adults. With comfortable seating, excellent crash ratings, and minimal road noise, the Hyundai Sonata offers a roomy interior that is ideal for long trips. Other interior features that make this vehicle stand out from its competition include:

  • Satellite radio
  • Bluetooth with audio streaming
  • Rearview camera
  • Cloth upholstery
  • Android Auto
  • USB port
  • AM/FM/XM/HD/CD radio paired with a seven-inch touchscreen
  • Hyundai BlueLink with destination search via Google, an in-vehicle app for car care and remote start
