2020 Hyundai Sonata

Overview

The Hyundai Sonata debuted in the United States as a 1989 model to be the Korean automaker's full-sized sedan, marked by a solid structure and the corresponding conservative look. Times have changed in the two-plus decades since, and the Sonata is set to begin a new generation for the 2020 model year with a sleeker look and improved safety, efficiency, and driving performance.


This daringly reborn Sonata looks aggressive and confident with its lower stance and eye-catching curves. It was introduced back in April at the 2019 New York International Auto Show to quite a few "oohs" and "ahhs," and it's ready to take on rivals such as the Honda Accord and Kia Optima. The redesign took shape within Hyundai's Sensuous Sportiness design language to create an innovative car that stands out from its more traditional competition. It's loaded with all of the cutting-edge technology and active safety systems that help create a better driving experience in today's fast-paced world, balanced with the comforts that drivers are demanding.


Mechanical Features

The '20 Sonata offers two Smartstream gasoline powerplants: a 2.5-liter GDI and a 1.6-liter T-GDI engine; these engines are both paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5-liter engine delivers 191 horsepower and 181 lb.-ft. of torque, which is an improvement over last year's 2.4-liter engine. The less powerful 1.6-liter engine still produces a respectable 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2.5-liter also is expected to deliver an EPA-estimated 33 combined mpg, while the 1.6-liter will follow closely with an EPA-estimated 31 combined mpg. The '20 Sonata also receives enhanced front and rear suspension geometry and improved braking responsiveness for overall better driving dynamics.


Technology

The Sonata's inclusion of advanced comfort and technology features will lead you to believe that you're in a much more expensive luxury vehicle. To keep you connected on the road, all Sonatas include an 8-inch display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. Other available features will include a smart trunk, electronic parking brake, a Qi high-speed wireless smartphone charging pad with cooling fan, Bluetooth with text-to-speech, and heated and ventilated front seats with split-folding rear seats. The top-tier infotainment display is highlighted by a generously sized 10.25-inch touchscreen monitor with cloud-based speech recognition by Blue Link. There is also an available navigation system with a bird's-eye view and HERE HD traffic flow and incident data for the most accurate navigation information possible. The 2020 Sonata will also have dual Bluetooth support so that two devices can be paired at the same time. Hyundai has also partnered with Bose engineers to create an outstanding 12-speaker premium audio system that delivers some of the most crisp, high-quality audio available. The "digital key" is another impressive addition to this model year's Sonata. It uses Bluetooth Low Energy communication with your smartphone to control your vehicle remotely. In other words, all you have to do is hold your phone up to the vehicle and you can lock and unlock the vehicle, activate the panic alert, and start the engine.


Safety

Once again, the Sonata proves it is one of the safest sedans in the industry. It features an advanced nine-airbag system with a number of passive safety technologies to provide optimal safety for all passengers. You can depend on the Sonata's multiload path structure, hot stamping, and super-high-tensile steel plate for additional energy absorption in the unfortunate event of a collision. It also features a sophisticated package of advanced driver assistance technology to provide some additional confidence and peace of mind on the road.
