Hyundai Sonata Overview

The redesigned Sonata has a quiet cabin, a comfortable ride, and good rear-seat room and access. Handling is sound and responsive enough. But the SE that we tested had lackluster tire grip, affecting braking and emergency handling. Engine choices a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 2.0-liter turbo four, both mated to a six-speed automatic. We measured a so-so 28 mpg overall with the 2.4-liter. The controls are easy to reach and simple to use. Available safety features include adaptive cruise control, forward-collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot detection. An Eco model, with a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch, is new. The hybrid version is still on the old platform.
