2015 Hyundai Sonata: Big Trunk

March 9, 2015

2015 Hyundai Sonata

I've loaded a few items into the trunk of our 2015 Hyundai Sonata so far. Each time, I thought to myself that the trunk seemed pretty roomy. And in actuality, the Sonata is a leader among its main rivals for trunk space on the spec sheet, too.

Trunk capacities of today's midsize family sedans are fall within a cubic foot of each other. But I guess there's always that cliché about being big, right?

Loading items such as suitcases into the Sonata's 16.3-cubic-foot trunk is helped out by a wide opening. The only downside I've noticed is that if you're packing in a lot of stuff high you have to pay some attention to where the trunk lid hinges lower down (when you close the lid). This is true for most sedans, but the Sonata's "gooseneck" hinges seem to be positioned a couple of inches more inwards than, say, the ones in our last big-trunk sedan, the Volkswagen Passat. Other than that, our Sonata is at the ready for carrying our stuff.
