Recently we had the chance to test drive the 2016 Hyundai Sonata for a week. A 4 door family sedan is generally not something we get excited about. Think of the cars in this group, the Camry, Malibu, Accord, Fusion & others. All of these cars are nice and some more sensible than others, but after 7 years of existence, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata is gaining and being mentioned in the same breath as those other cars.
We just had a chance to experience the new Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T, and this is a car I could realistically see in our driveway. There are lots of great things to see and experience with the new Sonata, here are some of my favorites.
The Sonata is a sleek looking car, I love the lines of this c ar, it looks like it was designed to provide you with great mileage while looking like a car that you would be proud to have in your driveway. I was actually a little shocked to see how big the Sonata is. From the outside, it looks much bigger than I remembered.
I mentioned how the Sonata appears bigger, well it really is huge inside. Most cars in this class have roomy interiors, but the Sonata feels huge on the inside. The front seat looks very modern and spacious. The backseat is very comfortable, even for taller folks.
All of the family sedans in this class are great people movers – sensible and practical. The Sonata provides everything the basic family of 4 would need. The trunk is very large for its class, the interior is very roomy, and price wise, the Sonata makes sense. It starts off in the same range as it’s competitors, but as you move up into the options, you get a little more bang for your buck compared to its domestic competitors.
Where I think the Sonata is a bit different is all of the options you can add to the car. It is a perfect family car, but you are also able to bump up your model and go with the 2.0T or the Sport and you get a great family car, as well as a car that is very fun to drive when you are alone. This is much more than a practical family car, if you want it to be one.
This is a car that we will consider buying next year when it is time for a new car. It worked great for our family and I am certain it can work for yours too. Make sure you get to a Hyundai dealer and check out the Sonata, along with others in their line, which all provide you with a high quality car at a lesser price than their competition.
