The Hyundai Sonata has long been considered the sedan to offer the best value over its competitors. The 2013 Hyundai Sonata in Tacoma is also known for its attractive styling, good fuel economy and decent ride, handling and driving feel, on top of its excellent cost and low maintenance fees.
The Hyundai Sonata contributed to the fact Hyundai owners are now among the most loyal shoppers at KBB.com when it comes to percentage of new-car shoppers reconsidering their current vehicle brand for their next purchase.
Smooth and responsive power delivery is a 2013 Hyundai Sonata highlight, as noted in the full review by KBB: “For how quickly and smoothly the 2013 Hyundai Sonata pulls away from a stop, you’d swear there was a V6 engine under its sleek hood. Instead, what resides there is a 2.4-liter direct-injection 4-cylinder engine producing 200 horsepower and delivering fuel economy figures of 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.”
In addition to 4-cylinder and turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata is available with a gas-electric hybrid powertrain as the first hybrid vehicle Hyundai has offered in the U.S.
Good looks and newfound popularity haven’t gone to the Hyundai Sonata’s head, as it remains a great value. The 2013 Hyundai Sonata starts at $21,790 and tops out in the low $30,000 neighborhood for a fully loaded hybrid or turbo model. And now that it’s one of the oldest models in the segment, a Sonata can often be had for a few thousand dollars less than those sticker prices.
Standard equipment on the GLS includes 16-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, air-conditioning, cruise control, full power accessories, heated mirrors, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a 60/40-split rear seatback, a trip computer, Bluetooth and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an iPod/USB audio interface and an auxiliary audio jack. An optional Popular Equipment package adds alloy wheels, foglights, automatic headlights, heated front seats and an eight-way power driver seat.
