Since its complete redesign in 2006, the Hyundai Sonata can compete directly with the Audi A6, the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is an exceptional car. Made in Alabama, the car is available in three plans, has an MSRP of $ 17,195 to $ 22,995 and has 24/34 mpg. If you plan to add a Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima or Chevy Malibu to your repertoire, we suggest you use the back of the 2018 Sonata. With the logo on the side, in the test with a blindfold, it will be difficult for you to tell the difference between the new sonata and its more expensive Japanese / European colleagues. One of the main attractions of Houston Hyundai Sonata is anti-branding, which has no icon related to its personality.
The shape corresponds to the function in Sonata 2018.
When you walk around the car, you will notice that the fascia takes a minimalist design approach. The clean and pristine lines, the sharp corner lights and a clean grille combine with the classic Bauhaus tradition. Lateral treatment allows you to avoid the “square” wedge, common to the Accord and Camry, and Sonata’s Sonata Slanted Extender gives the car a more winding and longer-lasting profile. The tail raises a brazen front view and has an elegant trapezoidal area for the license plate. The 2018 Sonata is a pragmatic car that offers a pot of sophistication for much less money than other cars in its class.
The doors next to the “fraud” and the luxurious interiors, make you believe that you are in an expensive German salon, like the BMW 3 Series, which we did not expect in the Sonata 2018. But, in truth, the interior of the Sonata is a long-awaited identity delay, part of the family sedan, the minibus market. When entering, the pleasant surprises are the comfortable 8-way adjustable front seats, a spacious and luxurious cabin finished in synthetic wood. The 2018 Sonata is also 2 inches longer and 2 inches taller than the previous model. It has a wider position than the new Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry 2018. Not only does the Sonata feel alone to sit, it feels good together. The instrument panel and door panels are ergonomically designed and covered with soft materials, which makes it more cosmopolitan, more exclusive. In addition, the comfortable rear seats have more space for adults.
All the work and no game is what the Sonata is about.
The car handles exceptionally well. The flexible 2.4-liter, inline 4 provides 162 horsepower, and the 3.3-liter V6 offers 235 horsepower with a maximum torque of 226 lb-ft. at 3500 rpm with an average of 20/30 mpg. The V6 has a higher torque level at the start of the torque, and both engines use magnesium components to reduce weight and efficiency. This technology is similar to the engines found in the new BMW 3 and 5 Series. Driving the Sonata 2018 is a satisfying experience. Remove the identification card and be sure to drive a more expensive and silent Lexus, Audi A6 or BMW. The steering is precise, the controls are well developed and the anti-lock brakes do their job effectively.
