2015 Hyundai Sonata: More Center Stack Observations
January 16, 2015
The center stack/dash vent combo in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is different than most we're seeing these days. How so? Well, first off, it's rather simple in its design and layout. It's a huge, flat surface with plenty of large buttons, along with knobs for controls that deserve knobs. Like for stereo volume and tuning.
It's also not perfectly symmetrical, as the central screen and center stack controls don't perfectly line up, and the left-side vent is offset as well. Not a problem in the least, just an observation.
The nice thing about "simple" is that it means everything is easy to learn and use in this Sonata. The only gripe I have so far with this setup is that the detents for the temp control knobs aren't quite detent-ful (new word) enough. Meaning, it's easy to move a temp knob two or three clicks when you're just trying to go one.
Other than that, I really like this simple and clean arrangement.
