Needed Good Gas Mileage, But Not Small
By joval on


2012 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


We live in the Fla. country, almost an hour to go to a city, and take a 340 mile trip every month. We needed good gas mileage but needed a car that was roomy inside, had folding 60/40 back seats to a large trunk . We also wanted to spend the least amount of money and still have a reliable car. The Sonata won out on all counts. Roomy car inside, especially with the camel interior to brighten it up, is quiet, handles very well, and has good acceleration to pass on two-lane highways. We now have 1021 miles on it. At steady flat 60 mph we got 42.2 mpg avg, at 75 mph, 35.5 mpg avg, and at 55, 44.5 mpg avg. Measured highway and city 1st tank avg. 28.28 mpg, second tank avg. 28.69. Overall pleased.

Best Features

Surprisingly good gas mileage. Solid build. Roomy interior, good sized trunk with the 60/40 folding back seats. Sound system good.

Worst Features

With shorts, my left knee got raw resting against the left door sound speaker grid. Put same hydraulic lifting system in passenger front seat as drivers seat. Wife wanted to lift the seat as it feels too low for her. Driver's seat is easily raised and lowered with this system. Overall car is an excellent value!
