2011 Hyundai Sonata Long-Term Road Test

2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Back Seat and Cargo Area

October 18, 2010


Our Hyundai Sonata doesn't offer as much legroom as its nearest competitors, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. With 34.6 inches of rear legroom, it falls third to Honda's 37.2 inches and Toyota's 38.3 inches. It has the same amount of rear headroom as the Camry at 37.8 inches. But both are less roomy than the Accords 38.5 inches.

The Sonata has the largest trunk of the three, though, with 16.4 cubic feet of luggage capacity. The Camry offers 15.0 cu.ft and the Accord only 14.7 cu.ft.

Here's a chart to make it easier to view.
