Driving the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is bound to be an exciting experience, since the Korean car manufacturer has announced that it’s completely overhauling the model. With six variants available, the Sonata has pushed both its interior and exterior design out of the box, hoping to make waves in its market.
This year, Hyundai has been shooting for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rating, and the Hyundai Sonata is its prize competitor. Knee airbags are in all models, and consumers have the option to pick from a number of other safety features, including Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Warning.
Hyundai has chosen to depart entirely from six-cylinder engines, opting in for three different options for four-cylinder engines. While most Hyundai consumers have not reported any dissatisfaction with the engine, Driving the 2015 Hyundai Sonata on the highway while handling heavy stresses does take some punch out of the engine. If the driver isn’t trying to outrun a souped-up V6, however, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata satisfies its purpose. Hyundai has also been working on improving its suspension and the smoothness of its drive, and the Sonata shows that it’s on the right track.
The Sonata has a full range of features and accessories, including all standard outputs, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. The generous eight” color display found in the higher models allows for full control and entertainment while driving.
Overall, Driving the 2015 Hyundai Sonata shows that this entry into the Sonata family is just what its manufacturer promised: a foray into new territory with a solid overhaul of a familiar model. Reports have been positive, and Hyundai is still holding out for that IIHS award.
The new Hyundai Sonata will be coming to dealers, including Larson Hyundai, with a number of additional optional features, including leather upholstery, a moon roof, and radar-based cruise control. Call to find out which will be the best for you.
