2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Stop It

September 10, 2010


And stop it does. Our Hyundai Sonata GLS has good braking power for a car in its class.

When you have a genius driving in front of you who decides to cut his freeway speed in half so he can finish his text, you really appreciate the confident feel of the Sonata's brakes. Good thing the cars behind me were paying attention, too. I'm sure it was a life-saving emergency text.

In our instrumented testing the Sonata's ventilated disc brakes brought the car from 60 to zero mph in 128 feet, without much fade after repeated stops.

Now if it only had laser cannons on the front a text message deactivation button.
