The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is the proof that sedans don’t have to be boring- Cnet

As SUVs are flooding the market these days, it's good to see that Hyundai is still putting some effort into midsize sedans, a segment that has been pushing the industry for decades. The latest Sonata is one of the smartest picks in the midsize family sedan segment. It's affordable, has great value for money, is safe, roomy and it comes with a killer warranty. 

The true cost to own the Sonata is slightly more than the segment leaders but considering the features list, it's really nothing. According to our estimation, it may cost $6,600 every year for its maintenance, repair, fuel, etc. The average cost per mile is $0.44, which is average for the segment. The Sonata has been a strong competitor in the segment for its good reliability as well.

Driving the 2018 Sonata on a mix of winding roads, highways, and city streets revealed a much-improved car dynamically- MotorTrend

2018 Hyundai Sonata Engine and Transmission

On the powertrain front, there are several choices to settle in. There's a base 2.4L four-cylinder engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission while a 6-speed manual is optional. This engine makes 185 hp and 178 lb-ft. of torque. Exclusive for the Eco trim is a 1.6L turbo inline-4 that produces a low 178 hp and 195 lb-ft. of torque. This engine uses a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for slightly better efficiency than the base engine.

2018 Hyundai Sonata engine

The Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T trims house a 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine that is good for 245 hp and 260 lb-ft. of torque. For 2018, this engine is connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission for improved low-end response and better fuel economy on the highway. The base powertrain isn't overly high-tech but they operate with refinement. The 1.8L engine is good for city rides but the 2.0L engine has great power delivery and quick throttle response.

Models 2018 Hyundai Sonata 2018 Mazda 6 2018 Honda Accord 2018 Toyota Camry
MSRP $ 19,550 $21,950 $ 23,570 $ 23,645

Power 185 hp @ 6,000 RPM 187 hp @ 6,000 RPM 192 hp @ 5,500 RPM 203 hp @ 6,600 RPM

The Toyota Camry makes the most power for a base engine and its optional engine is a robust V6. The Honda Accord makes decent power and uses a CVT transmission but is highly-priced than the Sonata. The Mazda 6 is the only car here to offer a standard manual transmission for a better driving experience. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata Acceleration

The base engine isn't much athletic and hence, takes 7.9 seconds to complete the acceleration test. Furthermore, the quarter-mile run is covered in 16.1 seconds. The turbocharged 2.0L engine is highly recommended for seamless power and responsive acceleration. It does the same in 7.1 seconds and has a top speed of 120 MPH. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata takes 7.9 sec to reach 60 MPH

The Sonata leaves the line smoothly with sufficient power and the engine remains civilized when you ask for extra zip. This engine is strong enough to break the front wheels off the line and it provides enough robust passing power at speed. From its speedy acceleration, you can say this version of the Sonata is tuned for rapid transit.

The Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry battle for the first place but it's the Accord that receives appreciates for its quick agility despite being less powerful. On the other hand, the Mazda 6's throttle response isn't that great, and therefore, it is the slowest contender in this competition. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata Handling and Steering

While in motion, the Hyundai Sonata feels good from the driver's seat. It rides in a comfortable and controlled fashion. Pick up some speed and the Sonata turns competently with minimal body roll. For 2018, the suspension has been re-tuned and the steering has been recalibrated for improving the ride and handling characteristics of the Sonata. Thanks to a revised suspension, the new Sonata feels tauter and more responsive and cooperates better with the driver through twisty bits.

2018 Hyundai Sonata rear driving view

The turbocharged models get a stiffer suspension to deliver a sporty driving experience but that takes away the ride comfort. Regardless of engine choice, all Sonatas offer Eco, Comfort, and Sport modes that alter throttle, steering, and transmission behavior. Meanwhile, a Smart mode that varies the vehicle's feel depending on the driver's input is added to the mix in cars equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L engine. Overall, the Sonata offers a gentle ride and handles effectively. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata Braking 

The Hyundai Sonata surprises a lot of drivers with its braking performance. The brakes in the Sonata are 12.0-inch ventilated front disc brakes and 11.2-inch rear disc brakes. The front brakes in the 2.0T models are slightly bigger that measures 12.6 inches in size. These brakes take 121 feet to stop from 60-0 MPH. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata brakes

It has one of the shortest braking distances in its class. The brakes prove up to the job by repeatedly scrubbing speed and executing a panic stop. The pedal feels soft but the turbocharged models have a firm pedal. The brakes respond quickly to the braking action. The strong stopping power urges the driver to drive confidently at speed.

 The Mazda 6 amazes with its braking capabilities. It records the shortest braking distance despite being the bulkiest in the crowd. The Toyota Camry is also on the same level as the Sonata in terms of braking. The Honda Accord disappoints with its braking performance as it takes the longest braking distance.

7.0/10

The Hyundai Sonata provides good fuel economy for such a roomy sedan- The Car Connection

The Hyundai Sonata performs pretty week in this regard. The EPA says that this sedan should return 25 MPG in the city, 36 MPG on a highway, and 29 MPG combined. Those who want to save more money should go for the Eco trim as it gives 28 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on a highway with a combined mileage of 31 MPG. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata front view

With the top-of-the-line 2.0L engine equipped, the combined mileage is around 26 MPG, which is still good for the power it makes. Owing to its large fuel tank, the Sonata delivers 601 miles combined in its most efficient form. The base engine's driving range is calculated to be 564 miles while the 2.0L engine has the lowest combined range of 509 miles.

The Toyota Camry is the most fuel-efficient sedan in this segment. It returns 5 MPG combined more than the Sonata with its base engine, though packing a powerful engine. The Honda Accord ranks below it with good gas mileage. The fuel estimates of the Mazda 6 are almost equivalent to the Sonata but it is more efficient. However, the Sonata has the best driving range here.

2018 Hyundai Sonata Seating and Comfort

The Hyundai Sonata's interiors strike a nice balance between function and style. In typical Hyundai fashion, the cabin doesn't wow occupants with futuristic or fancy materials. Most of the interior trim is hard plastic but nice graining and metal pieces add some flair. This five-seater comes standard with cloth upholstery but leather seats are available from the Sport trim onwards. The front seats are comfortable for a wide variety of body types.

2018 Hyundai Sonata dashboard

They have tons of space and lots of adjustments to get comfortable behind the wheel. Getting into the rear seat does require some ducking but at least the entryway is good-sized. The back seats are generous for the class and offer a comfortable seatback angle. They are still spacious but not quite as roomy primarily in terms of legroom. Still, normal-sized adults should be perfectly fine. Overall, the cabin feels modern and accommodates passengers nicely.

The Honda Accord's cabin is the most spacious here and its interior quality is better than the Sonata. The space levels in the Mazda 6 and the Toyota Camry are almost the same but Mazda uses premium materials in its cabin while the Camry uses a lot of hard plastics like the Sonata. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata Infotainment System

The infotainment duties in the Hyundai Sonata are handled by the Blue Link 7-inch touchscreen display. The interface is simple to understand and user-friendly. There is a lot to like about the simplicity of this touchscreen because it has physical shortcut buttons to help you jump between menus as well as physical volume and tuning knobs. There's also support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2018 Hyundai Sonata infotainment system

A 6-speaker stereo is standard but it can be upgraded to an 8-speaker Infinity premium sound system. An 8-inch version of the screen is standard on the Limited 2.0T trim and optional on all trims. There is an unambiguous separation between climate and audio controls. All those controls are easy to reach from the driver's seat. Every Sonata now provides three years of Blue Link subscription services plus it is now compatible with Amazon Alexa 

2018 Hyundai Sonata Interior Features

Some main cabin features of the new Sonata include:

  • Tilt & telescopic multi-function leather, heated steering wheel
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Push-button start
  • Cloth & leather upholstery 
  • Power front seats
  • Heated ventilated front seats

  • 6-speaker stereo
  • 4.2-inch electroluminescent driver's display
  • Voice-recognized navigation system

2018 Hyundai Sonata Cargo Volume

The Hyundai Sonata continues to impress in this field as well. You get 16.3 cubic feet of cargo space which is right near the top of the class. Four bags could easily fit inside, perfect for a small family. The cargo floor is flat, allowing for the storage of more items. Of course, you can fold down the rear seats for even more space. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata trunk volume

There's a nice trunk opening to make it easy to get stuff in and out. A hands-free tailgate is included in all but the base SE trim. Note that the rear seats don't fold completely flat. The loading lip is flat which means that that it is easy to load heavy items into the trunk. The low leftover height also comes in handy for easy cargo loading.

The Honda Accord's trunk is slightly more spacious than the Sonata but that's not much of a concern. The cargo space offered in the Mazda 6 is average for the class. But, it turns out that the Toyota Camry is the least practical vehicle in this class. Therefore, the Sonata makes a good option for a family sedan.

2018 Hyundai Sonata Dimensions and Weight

The Hyundai Sonata is new from pretty much every angle this year and it's still a nice-looking sedan. The most notable change in terms of design is the front fascia. The new hexagonal grille also called for a change in the design of the headlights and limited the space with the fog lights. The new Sonata looks aggressive and harmonious even though the grille might be reminiscent of some Audi models. The wheel options of the Sonata include 16, 17, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The low ground clearance makes it easy to get in and out of the vehicle. 

2018 Hyundai Sonata front driving view

The Sonata has the shortest wheelbase in this competition. A nice design touch is the chrome line which starts from the front of the car and goes all the way through the doors and ends at the back window. Speaking of aggressive features, the new rear is also redesigned to give a sportier feel. From behind, the trunk makes the Sonata look extremely tall and bulky. All in all, even though the Sonata is supposed to be a conservative midsize sedan, it is good to say that the design aesthetics succeeds in being much more

The wide wheelbase of the Toyota Camry results in better legroom in the rear row. At 3,131 pounds, the Honda Accord is the lightest vehicle in this competition and therefore, displays excellent performance on the road.
