Hyundai Sonata Overview

The 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. Most Sonatas have a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which returned 28 mpg overall in our tests. Optional is an uplevel 2.0-liter turbo four. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic. An Eco model features the third engine choice, a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. 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. The hybrid version is still on the old platform.
