Its expressive exterior is the latest iteration of Hyundai’s signature design language, Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. Sport and Limited trims include visual details that give Sonata’s sophisticated design an athletic edge.
Sonata’s confident style also redefines the family sedan interior with an ergonomic design and class-leading passenger and total interior space. In more ways than one, Sonata continues to be a step above.
What are critics saying about the Hyundai Sonata?
A 7-inch touchscreen comes standard on all 2016 Hyundai Sonata trims except the range-topping Limited 2.0T (which continues to have an 8-inch screen). Both systems feature smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay (late availability) and Android Auto. A rearview camera and automatic headlights are standard on all trims as well. An automatic emergency braking system debuts on the Limited 2.0T, while Hyundai says it has retuned the Sonata’s suspension for slightly improved handling. Read More >>
Car and Driver –
The Sonata features Genesis-inspired styling with a bit less flourish; it’s contemporary, with powertrains to match. A 185-hp 2.4-liter with a six-speed automatic is standard; there is a 178-hp 1.6-liter Eco model with a seven-speed automatic as well as both a hybrid and plug-in hybrid, for those seeking fuel efficiency. A 245-hp turbo four with a six-speed automatic carves out the sporty end of the market. The suspension is supple, steering is pleasing. It’s a good car, with no excuses needed. Read More >>

Inside you’ll find lots of storage, from the two-bin storage compartment between the front seats to the large open area at the bottom of the center stack and a closed compartment just above it. Though you can’t view navigation directions on the instrument cluster’s color info screen, the layout is pleasant and we’re fans of the design, which features two blue rings on the tachometer and speedometer. The temperature and gas gauges appear pushed forward, giving the instrument cluster more dimension, and we’re fans of the gas gauge’s fuel-level bar that gets thinner as the tank goes from full to empty.
