Hyundai Sonata Overview

The redesigned Sonata has a quieter cabin and rides more comfortably than previous. It may not be as stylish, but rear-seat room and rear access are also improved. Handling is sound and responsive enough for a midsized sedan. But the SE model that we tested had lackluster tire grip, affecting braking and emergency handling. Engines include the familiar 2.4-liter and the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. We measured a so-so 28 miles per gallon with the 2.4-liter engine. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission choice. Thankfully, the controls are easy to reach and simple to use. Available safety feature include adaptive cruise control, forward-collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot detection. A new 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission Eco version will be out soon.
