The Sonata is a comfortable and likable midsize sedan that proves Hyundai can build cars that are not just easy on the pocketbook, but easy to live with as well. Like most vehicles in the midsize sedan class, the Hyundai Sonata offers front-wheel drive, numerous safety features and a choice of trim levels that include sporty and plush variants. Lower pricing and outstanding warranty coverage has traditionally set the Sonata apart from its peers, but later versions of this car also stand out for their high-quality interiors.
Whether serving family car or commuter car duty, the Hyundai Sonata is a nice place to be thanks to its spacious cabin, comfortable seating for four or five and simple controls. In reviews, we've found that the Sonata provides acceleration ranging from solid to spirited, depending on the engine you choose. Steering and handling have steadily improved over the years, as has ride quality. Hyundai's midsize sedan might not have the cushiest ride in this class, but most buyers will find it plenty comfortable.
