2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Pint-sized Navi Screen

November 24, 2010

The navigation system in our long-term 2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS is quite good. The graphics are clear and attractive, the logic and screen flow are excellent, and the interface is the easiest to use touch panel.

However, the screen size itself is smaller than its competitors. I measured our Sonata's screen at 6.5 inches diagonally. The Camry's display is 7". One-half inch doesn't sound like much, but it makes a difference not only on workspace, but also on my first impression.

And that impression would be one of cost-cutting. Granted, it isn't postage stamped-sized like our MazdaSpeed 3's display, but when you're trying to go head-to-head with Camry and Accord, you'd best bring your Alpha game.
