2018 Hyundai Sonata – Review and Road Test

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


On the whole Americans are moving away from sedans toward SUVs. Nonetheless there remains a space for humble midsize family sedans like the Hyundai Sonata. Blending style and function while offering a range of engine choices the Sonata is a competitively-priced sedan with an exceptional warranty. But does it have what it takes to top competitors like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry? Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio examines that question in this video.

For the latest Hyundai Sonata pricing and information:


Sykobirdman says:

Great Review. It encouraged me to buy one and I love it.

Silent Refusal says:

Nah! No chance against any of the Japanese competitors, including Subaru Legacy.

Silent Refusal says:

One huge drawback in both the Korean car makers' rear seat and something no reviewer seems to point out is the lack of thigh support and awkwardly short seats, which makes any journey more than 30 minutes really tiring. I don't know why Kia and Hyundai can't get it right? Even in something like a midsize sedan? This is definitely one area where both Camry and Accord really shine.

The Universe Galaxy says:

Hynduai and Kia should change there car names to get past there past waters

J Trager says:

When is Hyundai/Infinity coming out with an update for the flawed radio in the 2018 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T? The treble control doesn't work for the radio, not just in my car, but in ALL 2018 Sonata Limited 2.0Ts! The slider moves from -10 to +10, but there is no change in the high frequency sound, like there should be! The bass and midrange controls work fine, even though I would prefer the midrange center frequency to be higher, say 3kHz, it is too low in frequency now to do any good! I can't believe they haven't changed the midrange center frequency since the 2012… I had one of them, till it was rear ended by an 18 year-old girl, and they still kept the same center frequency for the midrange! The midrange frequency should alter basically the voice frequencies! However, my main issue is with the treble control not working at all! Infinity where is your quality control? Do you try out your products before you release them? Come on, get me an update so my radio will sound like it should! I'll bet there is no issue with treble control for the radio in the 2018 HONDA ACCORD!

Got an SEL with Tech Pack for 22.5k a couple of months back. No other car in the segment can beat the price to features ratio. No real weaknesses noticed and it is a great car for daily commute. Absolutely love the ADAS features like lane keep assist and adaptive cruise. The bluelink app feature sealed the deal for me. Definitely would recommend it

Chris Hachey says:

I've had my 18 Sonata since November and while it wasn't my first choice for a four door sedan, the price simply cannot be beat. I previously owned a Subaru Legacy with hundreds of thousands of miles and wanted a new one but lease deals were astronomical compared to the Hyundai. Actually all lease deals besides the Altima were astronomically higher. Plus I get a ton of features standard and that wonderful warranty. Still obsessed with the trunk button! Styling has grown on me, the interior is meh but who cares, I use it to commute to work and shuttle my two pups on dog park runs and hiking trips so glad it's not fancy inside. Outside it looks much more premium than it is. I do wish I got the Eco model with the 1.6T but the 2.4 is adequate and I can't complain about the mpgs. My only complaint with the car was interior cloth color but in talking to a different salesman at Hyundai I realized I was flat out lied to by the guy that sold me the car. I have the grey gross cloth but it does come with a darker almost black which is what I asked for. Bullcrap but whatever. After browsing all the dealers I flat out refuse to go to Honda ever again after their horrific service and Subaru is not far behind. My only other pleasant experience was at Mazda. Kudos to Hyundai for this wonderful car. Can't wait for the all new model in a few years.
