5 reasons to buy the 2022 Hyundai Sonata

1. An intuitive infotainment system

The 2022 Hyundai Sonata excels in hooking you up to the people, places, and playlists. The standard eight- or available 10.25-inch touchscreen is easy to navigate, syncing perfectly with compatible devices thanks to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto functionality. Driving solo? Upgrade to a Sonata with dynamic voice recognition and you can enjoy hands-free calling, music selection, and navigation, all while your focus remains on the road ahead.

2. Tons of standard driver assistance

If you're shopping for a sedan with plenty of standard driver aids, you'll love the 2022 Sonata—it's well-equipped for the journeys that matter most. School and sports club drop-offs can be hectic, but the Sonata's rearview camera will assist you with parking spot maneuvers, while the rear seat reminder alerts you to any forgotten book bags or football helmets. If you're taking your mom and her friends to a concert downtown, the pedestrian detection feature supports your awareness through shared zones and crosswalks.

3. The plush and upscale interior

With all the hallmarks of a luxury vehicle, the 2022 Sonata interior has a welcoming ambiance, soft-touch material finishing, and plenty of upscale accents. For a romantic trip to the mountains, pick the Sonata SEL trim for heated front seats and a roomy 46.1 inches of legroom. Or if you want to impress your colleagues in the carpool, go ahead and upgrade to the range-topping Limited— it adds plush leather upholstery and a heated steering wheel.

4. All the extras on the Sonata SEL Plus

The Sonata SEL Plus is the feature-filled mid-level trim with something for everyone. For your convenience, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display and leather-wrapped steering wheel make your early morning commute that little bit smoother. Your crew will love the brightly lit cabin or starry night provided by the tilt-and-slide panoramic power sunroof. And for the perfect date night vibe, you'll also get LED interior lighting and a Bose® 12-speaker premium audio system.

5. Two great options for fewer fill-ups

If you're shopping on a budget, choosing the base trim Sonata makes sense, it's got plenty of standard features and the added bonus of more miles between fill-ups. The SE and SEL models are powered by a 191 hp, 2.5L engine, good for an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined.

 If you're curious about the benefits of a dual-source powertrain, check out the Sonata Hybrid. Pairing a 2L gasoline engine with a 39 kW onboard electric motor, the base trim Sonata Hybrid Blue has a total EPA-estimated range of 686 miles and an impressive 52 mpg combined, when new and driving on a full tank.
