Why Buy a 2020 Hyundai Sonata?

It will be competing with the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry.From the exterior design to the interior, there's a lot to talk about. With several color and trim options, there's something that every kind of driver will love. The last time the Sonata received such an overhaul was in 2011. This Sonata will debut technology that is not yet available on any of it's other vehicles. Despite debuting in Korea in March of 2019, the all-new, eighth generation Sonata is expected to hit US showrooms by October of this year.

The entry level price tag will be close to the current price tag starting at $23,500 for base trim levels. The SE trim level will come standard with Bluetooth, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, and LED tail lights. The center display with be 8 inches featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The SE will also include a 3.5 inch LCD instrument cluster, USB port, and remote keyless entry.

The new Sonata will be powered by one of two engines- a 1.6 liter turbo engine, pushing 180 horsepower and a 2.5 liter inline 4 cylinder, with 191 horsepower. Both will be paired with an 8-speed automatic engine, available currently as FWD. The 8-speed will be replacing the former generation's 6-speed automatic engine.

From the Santa Fe, the Sonata brings Hyundai's Safe Exit Assist, which will warn occupants that a vehicle may be approaching from behind when a door is opened. A feature most commonly found in luxury cars but, unique to the Sonata's class is the Remote Smart Parking Assist, which can move a car in or out of a parking space, even if there is no driver in the car. This feature will be controlled on the Sonata's key fob and is even capable of parallel parking.

Chrome trim on the side will accentuate the new sporty silhouette. The most unique feature of this new generation is Hyundai's Hidden Lighting Lamps, while surround the headlights.
