2020 Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai Sonata vs. the competition
Hyundai Sonata vs. Kia Opttima
The Sonata and the Kia Optima are corporate twins, each offering a different take on the midsize sedan. But the Sonata is fully redesigned for 2020, while the Optima soldiers on for a little while longer in its current guise. The Kia is a solid pick for a midsize sedan, and its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is far more powerful than either Hyundai engine. But if you want the latest technology features, the Sonata is the way to go.
Hyundai Sonata vs. Honda Accord
The Sonata will have a tough fight ahead if it wants to unseat the Honda Accord at the top of our Best Midsize Sedans leaderboard. The Accord is an exceptional four-door, with a poised ride, thoughtful cabin layout and two peppy engine options. It has very few faults, though we generally prefer Hyundai's infotainment systems and the smoother operation of its advanced driver safety aids.
Hyundai Sonata vs. Toyota Camry
The Toyota Camry stumbled a bit when this generation launched in 2018, but yearly improvements have made the 2020 model more full-featured than its predecessors. We appreciate the Camry's spacious cabin and its buttoned-down ride, at least in the sporty SE flavor. You can also get a strong V6 in the Camry. Overall, these two sedans are closely matched.
