#238: Driving the 2020 Hyundai Sonata

Main theme: We just bought a new Hyundai Sonata, which has been totally redesigned for 2020, and share our initial thoughts on why it might be a great value for sedan buyers.


Driven this week: 2020 Hyundai Sonata


Audience questions:


  • Why do my run-flat tires make so much noise?
  • Why does CR tend to favor cars with physical buttons and knobs over ones with touch controls?
  • Can I use an aftermarket lumbar support for my back, or should I look for a car with comfier seats?
  • If I have smaller aftermarket winter wheels, do I have to recalibrate my car’s active safety features?
