The redesigned Sonata returns to a sleek, coupe-like silhouette.
The standard 191-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder is coupled to an eight-speed automatic and provides unobtrusive, linear power.
An optional 180-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter engine is also available.
Handling is responsive but the ride is a touch firm.
The cabin looks modern, although we lament the use of buttons for the gear selector.
