The 2017 Sonata is a midsized sedan, placing it in direct competition with several of the best-selling cars in the country. Competing with the likes of the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord is no easy task, but Hyundai's typical strategy of packing a ton of value into its cars remains unchanged. The Sonata offers a lot of car for the money, undercutting its rivals in price, while simultaneously offering more interior volume and more upscale features. The 2017 Hyundai Sonata starts at $21,950.
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata officially makes its US debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show this week, and I have to say, it's a stunner. I've found it's pretty much impossible to have a conversation about this car without discussing its design, and everyone seems to agree, the new Sonata is gorgeous.
Prior to its New York debut, I flew to South Korea to spend a day driving the 2020 Sonata on its home turf. After a long stint behind the wheel, I'm happy to report that Hyundai's new midsizer is more than just a pretty face.
Despite being sold in the US since 1988, the Hyundai Sonata was long a wallflower of the midsize sedan segment. That all changed when the sixth-generation model arrived in 2010, its "Fluidic Sculpture" styling and solid value quickly escalating it toward the top of the class. (Even if it was followed up by a decidedly conservative face-lift in 2014.)
