2015 Hyundai Sonata: Smooth and Refined Engine
February 24, 2015
Look past all those plastic parts on the engine in our 2015 Hyundai Sonata and you'll find a very refined four-cylinder power plant. Whether you're wringing it out while getting on the highway or just cruising around town, the 2.4-liter engine sounds and feels well suited to this sedan.
I like the responsiveness of the throttle and the six-speed automatic does a good job of getting the most of its 185-horsepower. That said, this is not a fast car by any means. Thankfully, it's not dreadfully slow either. You can make passes on the highway in a reasonable amount of time and if you want to gutter ball someone at a light it will do that too.
So far its mileage numbers haven't lived up to its rating, but it's still early. I suspect this engine will get pretty close to its claimed numbers once we get some additional miles on the clock.
