The Boston-centric Super Bowl bartering from Hyundai that debuted beforehand this year featured some of the Hub’s top actors/entertainers aback the automaker apparent the all-new Sonata.
In its eighth generation, the mid-sized auto has an Audi-like angled rear — the auto administration looks sporty, yet it’s the affordable appraisement that gets hearts racing.
Don’t be bamboozled by the asleep attending of the afflictive headlights: the Sonata is a dream. For a large-framed human, I adore blame the bench aback all of the way to aerate leg allowance and to see how the amplitude abaft the disciplinarian is. The Sonata was appealing impressive. I endemic a 2017 Honda Accord Sport at one time, and it had the aforementioned affection — the rear amplitude was absolutely roomy. The Sonata is activity to force Accord and the Toyota Camry to accompany their best to the table. Class, assurance and accessibility are in affluence here.
The autogenous of the Sonata was active decidedly with the 2020 model, with a new blow awning bulging infotainment arrangement at 10.25 inches as able-bodied as a 12.3-inch absolutely agenda barometer array for the driver. Small aqueduct assignment was apparent as able-bodied in the birr but seemed to still assignment aback pushed to capacity.
Our Hyper White amalgam tester came with some absolutely nice additions (as best analysis cars do), but the Sonata absolutely showed why it has been a mainstay of the Hyundai calendar for years.
Nice touch: A solar console on the roof generates an added two afar per day of electric usage. A 13.2-gallon catchbasin additionally assisted with accepting over 600 afar on a catchbasin — now that is absolutely dreamy.
We sampled the Smart Park arrangement (or “Smaht Pahk,” as accurate by the locals in that ad) by departure the agent and application the key fob to aback the car into a parking space. This advantage is one of Hyundai’s best and is abundant to use in those tight-fitting spaces at the capital or grocery abundance or basically every artery in Boston. I was absolutely afflicted by how able-bodied this formed as able-bodied as how accessible it was to use. Also, on the Hyundai app, you can alpha the agent around and accept your temperature controls preset.
The Hyundai Sonata is addition abundant advantage in the mid-size market. With a abundant new exoteric that is accessible to spot, from the headlights to the taillights, the Sonata is all new and a austere advantage if you are attractive for an upscale-appearing, mid-sized, economy-priced sedan.
