The New 2020 Hyundai Sonata: When Luxury Meets Performance
The new 2020 Hyundai Sonata has been completely redesigned, offering more features and amenities than ever before. The latest model has a comfortable interior, a generous list of standard features, and more head and legroom than ever before. If you love the Hyundai brand and are considering purchasing the 2020 Sonata, now is the time to learn more about what it has to offer and why it may be the right vehicle for you.
Elegance and Function
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata has both form and function. There’s no segment-defining evolution with this model; however, you will likely be pretty surprised the first time you see it. Hyundai has obviously put thought into the usability and shape of the interior, and the body has a sleek, smooth appeal that hasn’t been seen in this segment. There’s definitely “something” about the latest Sonata making it a top pick for drivers this year.
A Glimpse Inside
The newly designed interior is one of the most appealing and functional portions of this vehicle seating. The Sonata provides ample room for up to five people with all seats offering comfort and support. The higher driving position provides excellent visibility, which has been aided further thanks to the thin roof pillars and low-sloping hood. Backseat passengers can also ride comfortably with plenty of head and legroom, even for passengers on the taller side. Standard interior features include cloth upholstery, along with adjustable front seats. You have the option to upgrade to an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a four-way adjustable passenger seat. Other optional features include heated seats or ventilated seats, along with suede or leather upholstery.
There are 16 cubic feet of trunk space in the Sonata, which is above average for a mid-size vehicle. It’s also more than what the top rivals offer (including the Toyota Camry and Kia Optima).
Infotainment, Navigation, and Bluetooth
The standard infotainment system in the 2020 Sonata includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an eight-inch touch screen, and a built-in USB port. If you opt for the higher trim, you will receive a 10.25-inch touch screen. The standard and upgraded infotainment systems in the Sonata are easy to use and learn. There are also a few buttons and knobs in the dash, which include a volume knob along with climate controls.
A new feature in the 2020 Sonata is the Hyundai Digital Key. This feature is designed to use NFC – near field communication technology – which allows Android phone users to use their device to unlock or lock the car and start it. It’s also possible to share the app with others so they can access the car.
Performance and Power
While the interior offers an array of appealing features, the exterior and engine is also quite impressive.
The redesigned 2020 Sonata features a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine standard. The output is rated at 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. There’s an optional engine, too, which is a 1.6 liter, turbocharged four-cylinder. This engine offers more power and performance, but it comes with a bigger price tag.
Ride and Handling
For the most part, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata provides you with a comfortable ride. This is true even in cases of bumps or broken pavement in the road. However, if you choose the larger wheels, it will make the road feel a bit harsher, which is something you may want to avoid. When cornering, body-motions are well controlled, keeping you comfortable regardless of the driving conditions. Keep in mind though, this is not a sports sedan, which means it’s lacking that “athletic” feel that other Hyundai vehicles offer.
Safety in Your New Sonata
Because Hyundai values driver safety, the 2020 Sonata offers an array of safety features. The standard model provides driver assistance features, such as pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane tracing assist, a rearview camera, and driver attention monitoring.
There are optional safety features, too. These include:
• Rear and front parking sensors
• Head-up display
• Surround-view parking camera system
• Blindspot camera
• Reverse automatic braking
• Blind-spot monitoring
You can also opt to add remote parking assist. This feature allows you to automatically park and unparks your vehicle in tighter, perpendicular spots.
The New 2020 Honda Sonata has 4 trim levels available:
With all of these different styles to choose from there is sure to be a Sonata that fit your lifestyle and budget. All trims are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. While the higher trims definitely come with all the bells and whistles, the base model offers several appealing standard features. This makes it an appealing option at a lower price point.
