Why Buy the 2018 Hyundai Sonata

With its fulfillment of the major attributes of the midsize sedan-good fuel economy, comfortable ride, ample interior space, and potent engine choices-the Hyundai Sonata is understandably among the top choices in its class. And the 2018 model year welcomes a major facelift to make it an even wiser choice. The car is split into seven variants: SE, Eco, SEL, Sport, Limited, Sport 2.0T, and Limited 2.0T.

Longmont CO - 2018 Hyundai Sonata OVERVIEW


Although part of this nameplate's seventh generation, this model is refreshed with the major design characteristics of the radical and better-received sixth production cycle, which bowed out with the 2014 model year. The sedan starts off with features like projector headlights with auto light control (to automatically turn on or off according to amount of outdoor illumination) and daytime running lights (to increase conspicuity), as well as dual fold-away heated power side mirrors. Upgrading to at least the SEL adds a hands-free smart trunk, turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors, and LED (instead of halogen) daytime running lights. The Limited trim level has dynamic bending light technology on the headlights for more accurate lighting, as well as LEDs on both headlights and taillights for a longer lifespan and greater brightness.

The Sport trim level and the Limited 2.0T stand apart from the other models with their racing-style front grilles, front bumpers, chrome rocker panels, and rear diffusers; they also have a chrome-tipped dual exhaust system. Exclusive to the Limited 2.0T is automatic high beam assist to improve vision during night driving. The SE and Eco use 16-inch alloy wheels and the 2.0T trims use 18-inch ones. The other trims ride on 17-inch alloy wheels.

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is designed as a five-seater, with 106.1 cubic feet of passenger space and 16.3 cubic feet of trunk space. If you go with at least the SEL, you can expect front-seat heating capability and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support. Upgrading to the Sport trim level (i.e., the regular model and its 2.oT variant) adds cloth-and-leather racing-style upholstery. The Limited trim level (i.e., the regular model and its 2.0T variant) has additional front-seat cooling ability, 6-way power adjustability on the front passenger seat, and a driver-seat integrated memory system.

For standard comfort and convenience, the car starts off with Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based control, and six-speaker AM/FM/MP3 audio with a 7-inch color touchscreen. On the SEL and higher, the car receives proximity key entry, push-button ignition, and the Blue Link® telematics system for a pair of three-year complimentary subscriptions for functions such as automatic collision notification and monthly vehicle health monitoring. The Sport and higher-level trims have an additional tilt-and-slide sunroof. Hyundai enhances the Limited trim-level models with dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless device charging ability, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, and a third Blue Link subscription for navigation assistance. In addition, the Limited trims go with a 10-speaker 400-watt Infinity® system, instead of the standard six-speaker audio. Features like steering-wheel heating capability, leather-covered sports seats, and smart cruise control are exclusive to the Limited 2.0T.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Request More Information

Standard on the 2018 model is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which generates 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. The Sport and Limited offer the choice of getting the 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged I4, which explains the "2.0T" suffix. As the most powerful engine available, the 2.0-liter turbo I4 generates 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The aptly-named Eco has a smaller and decidedly economy-focused 1.6-liter twin-scroll turbocharged I4, which generates 178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Also, the Eco is the only trim with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The SE, SEL, and regular Sport and Limited trims use a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sport and Limited's 2.0T models go with the brand-new 8-speed automatic transmission. Exclusive to the Limited 2.0T is start/stop technology for a more economical ride by eliminating engine idling. However, at 28/37 mpg, the Eco retains its title as the most fuel-efficient of all seven trims. The suspension for this model year-a MacPherson strut front and independent multi-link rear suspension-is tuned for improved ride quality, response, and feel. On the 2.0T models, it is tight-tuned for a sportier drive.

Safety - Why Buy with Safety Features

The car has seven airbags, a rearview camera, electronic vehicle stability and traction control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, and an anti-theft system that combines remote keyless entry and a panic alarm. New for 2018 is blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist as standard advanced safety features on all trims. However, only the Limited 2.0T has additional rear parking sensors, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning.
