Bang for the Buck
The Hyundai Sonata is a very good car with lots of interior room, large trunk, comfortable seats, great legroom in the front seats, easy to understand and operate controls. Base model comes with most options one would want on a car. Gas mileage averages 30 mph. Best of all, it can be bought new for less than 20K. After two years of ownership, still feel the same. A great value!
Sonata Limited 2.0 PZEV
I owned an Audi A4. I tested a BMW, like the way it rode but did not like the interior (for a female) controls too complicated. I tested the good old Camry XL, the materials and quality of everything that was Camry has deteriorated. Its not the same Camry I knew and owned in the past with very cheap materials. It felt like the old Toyota Tercels inside. I test drove an Accord for two hours. It does not handle bumps very well. If you have any issues with your spine, neck, hips this car was like driving a washing machine. The next day I had pain in my pelvis, which I never had before and spent a full day in bed on a heating pad.I test drove the Fusion, that car shook so violently, its just the way its made. Then I drove the Sonata Limited 2.0. It rides perfect, handles bumps like cushions. The inside is very nice, quiet. The layout of the instrumentation is so easy and logical I didnt even need to look at the book. It brakes great, I have cross traffic alert and all the bells and whistles on it. It was $30,000 and I leased it for 3 years for 14,000 including tax and tags. We drove this car out of state on a long trip and it drove and handled like a dream. There is not one thing I can say about this car thats negative. I wish I had test driven the Sonata 2.0 Limited before I tried the other cars. If you want a car that rides like a dream, gives you plenty of rear seat room, air conditioned front vented seats, good braking, great visibility, better headlights than the Audi's expensive lights, this is the car for you. Seriously. I spent almost a year looking for cars. I had parked this car in a parking lot and when I came out, I went over to the Audi A6 that was the same size and looked exactly the same (except for the front grille) and thought it was my Sonata. Yes, its that good and half the price of the A6. I had test drove the A6 as well and I didnt like the heaviness of the car plus the complicated information system and the "Ipad" that sticks up from the dashboard blocking your view of the street. Everything about the Sonata was perfect. Im seriously considering leasing again when the 3 years are up. I recommend this car and test drive it against the Camry and youll see what Im talking about. The Limited Sonata has 17 inch wheels, the base has 16. I have the 17 inch wheels which are better than 16. The Audis have low profile tires, which means far less cushion on the road and a harder stiff ride. I have never driven a car so comfortable as the Sonata, so if your thinking of this car, especially if your a female or older, I highly recommend it. I get approx. 35 mpg mixed highway and local. I cant put in the amount in the chart below for some reason.
Sonata owner since 2007!!!!
My second sonata since 2007! Let me say this 2017 has So much interior room and a nice ride on the road! Huge trunk! The only downfall for me is the fabric on seats..I feel it should have been better quality for a 21,000 dollar car. My other sonata was a 3.3 liter and I loved the extra horsepower. Maybe for 2018 model Hyundai should add V6 as a option which will make me buy another great Sonata!!!!! also change the fabric on the seats to have them higher quality and plush.

2017 Hyundai Sonata video

JOSH SADLIER: This is automotive editor Josh Sadlier with an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Hyundai Sonata. The Sonata is Hyundai's rival to midsize sedans like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. And it's so good that frankly it's easy to take it for granted at this point. But Hyundai has made incredible strides over the past few years. The current Sonata is fully competitive in its class. It's got fuel economy up to 36 miles per gallon with a base 2.4-liter fou4-cylinder. It's got a spacious interior. And as you can see, it's a good-looking car too. And Hyundai's warranty is the icing on the cake. You still get 10 years, 100,000 miles on the powertrain. And that continues to lead the class. We're looking at the turbo version here. And that's one disappointing thing about the Sonata. The 2.0T model, as they call it, doesn't quite have the punch you'd expect. And our track testing would notice that it lags behind other performance-oriented models in this class. Inside the Sonata, the back seat's about average for the class, which means there's room for a couple of six-footers. No problem. Pretty standard stuff here. That's why you get a midsize sedan in the first place. Up front, Hyundai's dialed back the styling of bit on the dashboard. It's a little more conservative this time around. And frankly, we think it's a step up in terms of appeal. It's almost a entry-level luxury look here with the way they've laid out the controls. And Hyundai's got a decent touchscreen infotainment system. And they even give you metal pedals in the Sport model. This is a very competitive segment. We mentioned the Accord. Mentioned the Camry. There's even the Mazda 6 as a dark horse candidate. Bottom line is you want to do a lot of test driving before you make a final choice. For more Edmunds Expert Rundowns, click the link to subscribe.

Looking for a well-rounded and affordable sedan? The 2017 Hyundai Sonata might be a great fit. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

When the Sonata was redesigned two years ago Edmunds gave the midsize sedan an "A" rating. In the years since, it has only become more versatile and refined.

There are no big changes to the Sonata for 2017, but some options have been shifted around and some features that were optional are now standard. What's best about the Sonata are all the talents it already carried: The cabin is among the roomiest and cushiest in its class, and the Sonata comes with a particularly generous portion of rear seat legroom. And that room doesn't come at the expense of a precisely controlled suspension, responsive steering and some genuine driving fun. Even when the Sonata is filled with passengers, it keeps its composure. And it's a good bet that those passengers will appreciate being able to stretch out.

Another advantage of the Sonata is value. Even the base Sonata comes comfortably equipped so that it feels like a real car and not a stark penalty box. Move up to the top-of-the-line Limited powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the Sonata becomes a genuine midsize luxury car. It features leather upholstery, a big sunroof, upgraded wheels, and a full load of technology including blind-spot monitoring and an automatic braking system to keep an emergency from turning into a disaster. A brilliantly bright touchscreen for controlling the navigation and entertainment systems is a bonus.

A 10-year, 100,000 mile warranty on the powertrain comes standard.

Three powertrains are offered in the Sonata, not counting the gas-electric hybrid versions that are covered separately on Edmunds. Base Sonata SE and Sport models are powered by a non-turbocharged 2.4-liter four rated at 185 horsepower. Latched to the standard six-speed automatic transmission, that combination is EPA-rated at 29 mpg combined (25 city/36 highway).

A turbocharged 1.6-liter four cylinder with 178 horsepower accompanied by a seven-speed automatic transmission is now offered in the Eco model with a rating of 31 mpg combined (28 city/36 highway).

The most powerful engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder that boasts 245 horsepower. This comes paired to a six-speed automatic in Sport and Limited versions. That combination is rated at 26 mpg combined (22 city/31 highway).

The market is filled with attractive midsize sedans, and the Sonata is certainly a bright spot in this segment. Edmunds is here to help you pick the perfect car and get a great deal.
