Sonata's strong yet sophisticated design has evolved—informed by confidence, technology and attention to detail. All revealed in an exterior that features a 0.27 coefficient of drag that helps improve fuel economy
There are two ways to get your daily dose of sunshine, fresh air and vitamin D. Sonata gives you a choice of either an available power tilt-and-slide sunroof or a panoramic sunroof. This large glass roof opens wide to give you an unobstructed view above.
Think of all you could see with an HID lighting system that moves as you do. Well, that's the idea behind Sonata's available Dynamic Bending Light. It's designed to turn the headlights with the direction of the curve as you turn the steering wheel.
Sport-tuned suspension and larger front brakes on Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T enhance steering response, handling and braking. The Sport and Limited models include a unique front grille, side rocker panels with chrome molding, side mirror-mounted turn-signal indicators, 17-inch alloy wheels and dual exhaust tips, while the Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T add 18-inch alloy wheels, quad exhaust and rear diffuser.
The Sonata has more passenger and total interior space than any other vehicle in its class. In other words: There's plenty of room for five, plus luggage.
Sonata's available rear side sunshades are integrated into the door panels, so they're out of sight when not in use, and can be easily raised by hand. Designed to help block out the sunlight, it's a feature that adds privacy while shading passengers from bright sunlight and it's especially useful for families with small children.
For added comfort in cold weather conditions, there's available front and rear heated seat cushions to help cut the chill when it's cold outside.
For a deeper understanding of how the Sonata delivers rewarding ride and handling performance on the road, consider these suspension and chassis upgrades. Front and rear aluminum suspension components offer weight reduction and strength, while a dual lower arm rear suspension enhances braking and stability during high speed maneuvers. In addition, road noise has been reduced through improved vehicle chassis rigidity and soundproofing materials.
Everybody has a different take on steering feel. Some want more steering effort, others less. Well, with Drive Mode Select, you get to choose. Drive Mode Select adjusts both engine and transmission response and steering effort to match your driving style. Select from three modes: Eco, Normal or Sport by simply touching a button on the center console.
The Automatic Emergency Braking system uses both a camera and radar sensor. If a crash is imminent and the driver does not react, the system deploys Automatic Emergency Braking. The system can even apply full brake-force stopping power from 5 to 50 mph
This available radar-based system helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver's blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert to help keep you aware as you move down the road. When reverse gear is selected, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it's not, gives the driver an audible and visual warning
When the road curves and the driver turns the wheel, this available system moves the headlights to provide a better view in dark corners and an added element of safety.
This available feature makes loading and unloading your Sonata more convenient. The hands-free smart trunk opens automatically when it senses the Proximity Key is behind the vehicle within three feet for more than three seconds
When this available feature is activated and it detects a vehicle in your lane ahead, it automatically slows the Sonata down maintaining a safe distance with the vehicle ahead and will even come to a full stop, then start again without driver input
The Sonata's available navigation system makes getting to your destination easier. Use voice-recognition or the interactive 8-inch touchscreen for directions without distractions. The SiriusXM® Travel Link allows you to search for nearby businesses like gas stations, ATMs or restaurants. It also gives you a clear picture of current traffic situations, the weather, stocks and sports, all in real time. Plus, it can even let you know fuel prices and movie times. And this system is also Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible.
