Hyundai Sonata Review for 2016 Model Year
With contemporary looks and technology, as well as a large, quiet cabin and wealth of standard features, the Hyundai Sonata stands out as a leader among midsize sedans. In Edmunds.com's 2016 Hyundai Sonata review, editors give the four-door an A rating and call it one of their favorite sedans in the midsize segment for these reasons and more.
Locals can find the new 2016 Hyundai Sonata in Phoenix, Arizona, with SE, Sport, Eco, Limited, Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T trim levels to choose from. In addition, if you're in the market for a hybrid you can browse features on the Sonata Hybrid SE and Limited at Camelback Hyundai, too.
This year, gas-powered models gain a standard new 7-inch touchscreen system with new smartphone integration for Apple and Android users; an 8-inch touchscreen with the same smartphone systems is standard on the top-of-the-line Limited 2.0T. In addition, automatic headlights and a rearview camera are now standard on all trim levels. Performance updates include revised suspension tuning and the debut of automatic emergency braking on the Limited 2.0T.
As for the hybrid model, 2016 Hyundai Sonata reviews say the gas-electric trims' new redesign provides a more upscale look on both the exterior and interior. Plus, the hybrid is 10 percent more efficient this year thanks to a drive system upgrade. With its under-the-hood changes, EPA fuel economy estimates stand at 42 mpg combined (40 city/44 highway) on all models except the Sonata Hybrid Limited, which weighs a tad more than its siblings. Due to its weight difference, it achieves estimates of 39 mpg city/43 mpg highway, which are still exceptional numbers.
Aside from the changes noted above, Sonata carries over pretty much all of the same great features as last year. Heated mirrors, Bluetooth phone/audio, satellite radio, a tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, cruise control and many other amenities all come standard. More and more features are added to the list the further you go up the trim line, as well.
