Hyundai does it again, revamping the mid-sized Sonata sedan with more style, great interior and two effective engines. Hyundai helped define the mid-sized se…
In lower trims this car makes sense somewhat, but at the top end it is
within range of a fully loaded Azera which comes with a V6 engine and is
more plush and makes more sense. You can also get a base Lexus ES which
even though it may not have the same stuff, it is still a Lexus. And then
when you go down the range there is the Camry and the Accord and the Fusion
and others which just makes things even harder.
Did you know why Hyundai detuned its 2.0T Engine?
Because the 2010 2.0T engine wasn’t too reliable, so they have to kept
detuning it. It’s like asking Subaru to make a 500hp STi from the same 2.5L
, but it wouldn’t have the same level of reliability as to the current
Hyundais are getting wayyy to pricey with wayyy to many option packages. I
also hate the rear taillights and the boxy interior.
I am going to have to respectfully disagree with you on the styling of the
2010 Sonata. I believe that the 2008 Honda Accord and more notably the
Accord coupe had the dynamic styling before the Hyundai. Great review
Please review Eco version with 1.6t engine and 7 speed DCT.
I heard that it is faster than 2.0t and more frugal than 2.4L base engine.
I think this looks so much better than the previous generation…….. I
thought of that as to feminine.
HUMMMM when will Hyundai / Kia get sued AGAIN for BS’ing on MPG mumbers?
Love the reviews, how did you find the seats? I found the 2014 Accords
seats to be very good but I’ve never been a huge fan of those found in
Camry’s although I haven’t seen the most recent one.
Zack, love your reviews! When will you be doing the review for the new
Genesis from Hyundai?
Wow Hyundai’s have come a long way & much better from the Pony years!
(Before your time?)
I like the new Hyundai, but still don’t know if I could buy one. 25 years
later, and I am still holding a grudge about the Pony that I bought.
Off-topic, but have you heard anything if whether or not the A3 hatchback
is coming to Canada?
can you not get an acura TLX with tech package for all that which is a much
better looking and driving car (2.4L)? This looks nice though. I like it
Like watching your reviews. Keep them coming!
Its pretty astonishing how big of a leap Kia and Hyundai have made in just
5 years. Turned around their companies.
it interior looks like audi s4 abit.
do you still find Hyundai’s driver seat position to be high up compared to
The 2.0T ultimate doesn’t have heated steering wheel. FYI.
I think it’s a really nice car. Lots of space inside. Just not with that
The #HyundaiSonata is vastly improved for 2015 with all-new styling, new
interior and refined engines. @hyundaicanada
