Which Hyundai Sonata Should You Buy?
The Sonata SE comes with standard features that range from a rear-view camera to a shark-fin antenna. Its spacious interior maximizes comfort and minimizes road noise. All the standard features make the SE an easy decision for anyone who wants the dependability and fuel economy of a Sonata without the cosmetic options or drivetrain upgrades provided by other trim levels.
The SE Sonata’s rich set of features make it seem less like a starting-point and more like a destination. It’s a great car if you are a first time Hyundai owner looking to see what all the buzz is about.
Sonata’s Eco trim level turns it up, adding daytime running lights, side mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, and a handsome leatherette cabin trim. On top of that, you get a masterful 1.6L Inline 4-cylinder Twin-scroll Turbo engine for greater efficiency.
The Sonata Eco is a sophisticated vehicle that looks beautiful humming down the road, and it’s a step up if you’re looking for more value and polished features.
The Sport trim level adds to the mix a crisp set of 17” alloy wheels for a bolder first impression. It also streamlines the Sonata’s body styling by adding a more aggressive grill and chrome-tipped dual exhaust.
The Sonata Sport takes this mild-mannered sedan and adds some aggression. This car is focused more on the driver, with an available 8-way powered driver’s seat.
Sonata Sport 2.0T
The Sport 2.0T bumps the alloy wheels up to 18”, while also adding sport-tuned suspension and chrome-tipped quad exhaust.
But the real upgrade is under the hood. The Sport 2.0T comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0L engine that produces 245 horsepower. Together with the upgraded suspension, the beefier engine amps up the performance level of the Sonata. If you enjoy more responsiveness from your steering wheel and your gas pedal, check out this trim.
The Sonata Limited trim level adds a host of additions on top of the Sport’s features. Overall, the Limited has a more refined appearance. It includes elegant 17” alloy wheels, woodgrain trim, LED taillights, and chrome exterior door handles.
In addition to these styling differences, the Limited offers a range of functional features like floor console-mounted rear vents, an auto-dimming interior mirror, and heated front seats. This is a premium model for buyers who want a more sophisticated experience on the road.
Sonata Limited 2.0T
Topping off the list is the Sonata Limited 2.0T. Like the Sport 2.0T, this trim level comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0L engine that produces 245 horsepower and the sport-tuned suspension. The Limited 2.0T introduces also comes with distinct 18” alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a high-gloss window surround, and an aggressive front grille.
In addition to these cosmetic upgrades, the Limited 2.0T comes with standard advanced safety features like lane departure warning, automatic high beam assist, rear parking sensors, and automatic emergency braking.
The Limited 2.0T is the most loaded Sonata you can get, making it an appropriate car for someone who wants it all: elegance, security, power, and dependability.
