The Hyundai Sonata: Growing and Glowing in the Mid-Size Market


This year, the Hyundai Sonata delivers a roomy cabin, amazing value, and a nice, easy ride. See the full line of Sonata models at Ray Skillman Hyundai.


Let’s take a look at how the new Hyundai Sonata beats out the competition in its class, like the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry, among others. After learning of the countless advantages in the new Sonata, we hope there will be no question as to which sedan gives you exactly what you need in order to get everything you want out of every mile in your next vehicle.

Making a Sonata a Sonata

They’ve done it again! Hyundai Sonata remains in the top tier of mid-size sedans! Starting the line-up with an MSRP of $20,550, the Sonata is the clear winner for price and value. A high mpg rating doesn’t hurt either. Where does the Sonata shine? Where it counts. Gold stars for its stellar safety record, high-end powertrain, an amazing warranty that just won’t quit, a classy interior with big, roomy seats and an easy-to-use electronics.

Breaking Away From the Pack

The Sonata’s sleek, strong lines make it a well-balanced sedan with a prominent front grille. And now, the head and taillights can be fitted with LEDs. Improved braking, steering and suspension work in tandem with the driver through sharp corners to create a steady, quiet drive. Sonata provides a roomy cabin with soft, comfy seats that beat out heavy hitters like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Kia Optima. The back seat is particularly roomy and the smooth ride will lull the fussiest toddler to sleep. The large, deep trunk (16.3 cubic feet) is there to carry all your stuff. And the hands-free option blew out the competition.

The Sonata has been a popular model since its inception in 1985, and this year they’ve expanded to offer seven different designs. The array starts with the humble, yet highly valued, Se with its 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, and six-speed transmission that packs a punch when you need acceleration in traffic. Next up, comes the SEL and Sport, followed by the hybrid Eco, which delivers 37-highway mpg. The higher end of the spectrum includes the Limited Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T that display strength and luxury. Mid-size sedans just got a whole lot more exciting with these turbocharged four-cylinder engines and eight-speed automatic transmissions. If it sounds like it’s too much to remember, let us help you at Ray Skillman Hyundai where we help you navigate through these options.

Say It With Safety and Reliability, Then Back It Up

Over the years, the Hyundai Sonata has consistently earned high ratings in crash testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This year, their standard safety features include Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. The higher-end trims, including Limited 2.0T, offer Forward-Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking as standard features.

On a Sonata, the dashboard is a paradise of entertainment. The easy-to-control 7-inch color infotainment system has a Blue Link that people appreciate. They also like CarPlay or Android Auto as standard options. Navigation systems and wireless phone charging pads are also available.

The Hyundai Sonata was rated incredibly high in overall reliability, and the proof is in the pudding. Hyundai stands behind all their vehicles with one of the longest warranties on the market. Hyundai walks away from the competition with a comprehensive bumper-to-bumper warranty and roadside assistance. In broad strokes, the warranty includes 5-year/60,000-mile for basic repairs and a 10-year/100,000-mile for the powertrain.

From the first follow up phone call concerning my registration and pre-approval, through the application process, to the follow up call after I bought my new car the customer service was excellent. I never felt hurried, pushed, or like anyone was trying to sell me a car. Everyone I encountered came across as just really wanting to help and had concern about the customer experience without being overbearing. My dealings with car buying has never been a comfortable process for me, I now know that experience can be pleasant and pressure free. Biggest thanks to Andrew and his dad Peter for insuring my experience was great. I love my car and will send anyone who asks to Ray Skillman Greenwood!
