2011 Hyundai Sonata: Smooth or Finger-Contoured Wheel?

December 30, 2010

The Hyundai Sonata has some of the most pronounced built-in finger contours of any steering wheel I've used. I think I prefer a smooth rim as it slides through my fingers easier while shuffle steering. Even better is the GTI's trim, which is smooth, but shaped in a way that better fits your hand.

So tell us, do you prefer a smooth or finger-contoured wheel?
