Evocative New Styling

Take a look at the new 2016’s sexy and seductive sheetmetal and you might mistake it for a Mercedes or a BMW. Through the years the Sonata’s form has evolved, creating an eye-catching four-door sedan that’s stunningly beautiful from any angle. Moreover, the new Sonata’s sleek aero design was tested in the wind tunnel to achieve an excellent 0.27 coefficient of drag. That low number translates to better fuel economy. From the front, the new 2016 Hyundai at Rick Case Hyundai Roswell exudes a bold, yet refined, style all its own. You’ll notice how the two creases in the hood meet at the edges of a large four-ribbed front grille accented with chrome, giving the Sonata a fluid appearance. These same lines carry through the Sonata’s gracefully arching roofline, creating a sense of unbroken motion.

Brilliant “cat’s eye” projector-beam headlights and available LED fog lights evoke an upmarket feel. Side mirror-mounted turn signals, unique 17-inch five-spoke aluminum alloy wheels, an integrated rear spoiler, and available twin chrome-tipped exhausts on the Sport and Limited models speak to the Sonata’s sportier personality. And we should also mention the hands-free “Smart Trunk” that automatically opens when it senses your Proximity Key behind the vehicle. Yet another class-exclusive feature from Hyundai.

Spacious & Upscale Interior

The interior of the new 2016 Sonata is remarkable for its quality, ergonomic layout, and spaciousness. Hyundai designers got it right, crafting a quiet cabin that feels like it should be in a luxury automobile costing thousands more. From the soft-touch dash and chrome door handles to the available leather three-spoke sport steering wheel, the Sonata’s luxuriant interior speaks volumes about quality and attention to detail. While we’re on the subject of volume, you should note that the Sonata offers the most interior space than any other vehicle in its class. You and four other passengers can stretch out in comfort and enjoy the Sonata’s available, buttery-soft leather seats.

Your rear passengers will also appreciate shielding themselves from the hot Georgia sun thanks to the Sonata’s available rear side sunshades, a class exclusive. Find your perfect driving position thanks to the Sonata’s optional ventilated 10-way power driver seat with lumbar support. The Sonata Turbo models offer special sport leather seating with contrast stitching, a flat-bottomed “D-shaped” sport steering wheel, paddle shifters, aluminum pedals, and sports instrumentation. And for those brisk mornings, warm up with the available heated leather steering wheel and heated rear seats.

High-Tech Innovation

Not only does is the new 2016 Hyundai a stunner when it comes to good looks, but the Sonata also features some stunning new technology. The new Sonata takes the lead on the technology highway as the first car in its class to offer Android Auto™. Connect with your Android-powered smartphone and open a new world of voice-activated capabilities. Dictate and listen to text messages. Get turn-by-turn navigation instructions. Find locations. Have a chat with Google and take your connectivity further than ever you thought possible. Android Auto™ literally turns your Sonata into a four-wheeled extension of your smartphone. How smart is that?

However, we’ve only begun to scratch the Sonata’s myriad cutting-edge innovations. A large, available 8-inch touchscreen color display controls an array of functions, including displaying navigational maps, selecting audio choices, and more. Make and receive calls using Bluetooth® and take your technology wherever you go.

Exciting Performance & Handling

Driving the new 2016 Hyundai Sonata is joy, thanks to the input provided by Lotus Engineering, one of the world’s preeminent manufacturers of high-performance sports vehicles. Hyundai fine-tuned the Sonata’s suspension, adding several aluminum suspension components and a stiffer body structure to provide what one automotive reviewer calls a ride that is “settled and compliant at any speed.”

Motivating the new 2016 Sonata are your choice of two outstanding engines. As Kirk Bell, an editor with TheCarConnection.com notes, “One of the lighter cars in its class, the Sonata was also one of the first to move to an all-four-cylinder lineup, and it doesn’t want for more. The base 185-horsepower 2.4-liter four and the twin-scroll turbo’ed, 245-hp 2.0-liter four are free-revving engines that deliver their power fairly quietly and almost free of vibration. With either engine, you get a six-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic® manual controls and quick, smooth shifts. Sport 2.0T models have paddle shifters, and all Sonatas get [Drive Mode Select] a three-mode driving selector that fiddles with shift timing, throttle delivery, and power steering assist through Eco, Normal, and Sport modes.”

In terms of fuel economy, the Sonata scores well with the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder getting an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/38 mpg highway. The 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder in the Sonata Eco model achieves and EPA-estimated 28 mpg city and 38 mpg highway while the Sport Turbo and Turbo Limited models get 21 mpg city/31 mpg highway.

A Passion For Safety

Now let’s turn our attention to safety. That’s a very big word at Hyundai. In fact, Hyundai is passionate about safety. So much so that the new 2016 Sonata comes equipped with some of the most advanced standard and available safety features you’ll find.

According to TheCarConnection.com’s Kirk Bell, the Sonata’s safety record is superlative. He states that, “The 2016 Hyundai Sonata has an impressive safety record. It comes standard with seven airbags, including a driver’s knee bag. It also offers (available) blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, active cruise control, and forward collision warning, now with emergency braking.”

“The Sonata has also managed some quite impressive safety ratings from both the federal government and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS),” Bell adds. “In government testing, it scored excellent five stars both overall and in frontal and side-impact categories. That includes five stars in both subcategories of the frontal test (for a male-size driver and female-size passenger), as well as a perfect five stars in all subcategories of the side barrier test and the side pole test.”

Consequently, the Hyundai Sonata earns the IIHS Top Safety Pick + Award for superior safety.

Ultimately, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata receives high praise as a four-door that takes on the best Honda and Toyota has to offer. As Edmunds.com says, “If you want plenty of passenger room and a quiet, easy-to-live-with cabin, the Sonata definitely has what you’re looking for.” And Car & Driver states, “The suspension is supple and steering is pleasant. Tech and comfort features are ahead of the competition, too. It’s a good car, with no excuses needed.” It’s no wonder that the 2015 Sonata was ranked “Best For The Money Midsize Car” by U.S. News & World Report.
