Totally redesigned for 2015, the Hyundai Sonata remains a features-per-dollar standout.
Hyundai's midsize sedan is all-new for 2015, with subtler styling outside, a more elegant design inside and improved driving feel. The improvements only add to the Sonata's appeal as a midsize sedan that's loaded with a surprising number of features for the money. The Sonata has been a huge success for Hyundai, so much so that Hyundai owners are now among the most loyal shoppers at KBB.com, trailing only Toyota, Lexus and Honda in percentage of new-car shoppers reconsidering their current vehicle brand for their next purchase.
The Sonata's powertrain is among its many strengths, as noted in our 2015 Hyundai Sonata review: "The 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine will carry the bulk of 2015 Sonata sales and for good reason. It's quiet and works harmoniously with the 6-speed automatic transmission."
Sonata Sport 2.0T
While the 2.4-liter engine will power most Sonatas and the Sonata Eco's 1.6-liter will be the fuel-economy leader, those whose blood runs hotter should consider the Sonata Sport 2.0T. Its turbocharged engine puts out 245 horsepower, and a dual-pinion steering rack further improves steering feel compared to other Sonatas.
While the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a carryover model based on the previous-generation Sonata, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will marry gas-electric power with the new sheetmetal. It was one of several new-for-2016 models shown at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January.
Build and Price
Good looks and newfound popularity haven't gone to the Hyundai Sonata's head, as it remains a great value. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata starts at just under $22,000 and tops out at over $34,000 for a fully loaded Sport 2.0T model.
