If there’s been a better sedan on the market over the last 30 years, the Hyundai Sonata hasn’t met it. Known for its sleek looks and seamless road manners, this midsize car has been a favorite of car owners for decades. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Or does it?

The redesigned 2018 Hyundai Sonata certainly thinks so. Having undergone a dramatic makeover, this year’s model offers a lot of benefits you might not know about. Keep reading for an overview of the specs you’ll want to inspect.

Breaking Down the Redesigned 2018 Hyundai Sonata

Design

It’s impossible not to get drawn in by the 2018 Sonata’s bolder grille, sharper exterior contouring, and smarter hands-free trunk. Once you take a closer look in the cabin, you’ll find a restyled center stack that features a standard 7” color display with an embedded rearview camera.

But you won’t be the only one to enjoy all the changes. The 2018 Sonata boasts a class-leading 122.4 cu. ft. of interior space with ample head and legroom for up to five. And while we’re talking numbers, the Sonata’s available Integrated Memory Seats save seat positioning and mirror settings for two. With so many well-crafted elements, it’s no wonder the 2018 Sonata won the 2017 “GOOD DESIGN®” Award.

Performance

The great minds at Hyundai didn’t stop at making the Sonata look good. With the choice of three impressive engines, the 2018 model is more fun to drive than ever. Choose the base option, and you’ll achieve an estimated 36 mpg in fuel economy on the highway. Pick the Eco trim, and you’ll boost your fuel efficiency to 37 mpg.

But if extra pop is what you’re after, go for the Sport 2.0T or Limited 2.0T. With up to 245 horsepower and an 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, you’ll be glad that you did.

Safety

Manufacturing cars that are as safe as they are smart and efficient might be difficult for some automakers, but not for Hyundai. The 2018 Sonata comes with standard Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. But if you want the extra piece of mind, opt for the Ultimate Package on the Limited trim. This bundle packs Lane Keep Assist, Pedestrian Detection, and more.
