2011 Hyundai Sonata: Touchscreen Interface Looks Better Than Those Seen in Some Luxury Models

January 28, 2011

One of the things I love about the Sonata is how colorful and elaborate its touchscreen interface is. You've got your blues, you've got your reds, you've got your grays, you've got your greens. You've got your sharp resolution. The interface is lively and engaging and as far as I'm concerned, it really illustrates care and attention to detail on the part of the manufacturer.

It's interesting that manufacturers like Hyundai and Ford have surpassed even certain luxury-car makers on this front. The touchscreen interface shown below is from Lexus' flagship model, the LS 460. As you can see, the color palette is limited and the resolution ain't so hot.

What do you think of your car's interface, if it has one?
