Redesigned 2015 Hyundai Sonata

New for this year, the redesigned 2015 Hyundai Sonata has further improved what was already an incredible car for the money. Sonata is Hyundai’s answer for people looking to drive an affordable car with luxury finishes.

Not one to disappoint, the Sonata delivers sleek and sophisticated lines, a well-appointed interior and standard features that feel like a high-end vehicle.  Reviews for the Sonata found it to be incredibly roomy with enough space for drivers over six feet tall. Simultaneously, the backseat is large enough for an adult to sit cross-legged and for you to fit several car seats or car seats and a booster. As a result, the Sonata is an idea vehicle for families or anyone that drives family or friends on a regular basis. Since all of this room is available for $21,750 there is no need to drive a used car. After all, a new Sonata can be purchased or leased for less than $200 a month and the pleasure you receive from driving it will be well worth the investment.

Hyundai toned down the Sonata’s design in 2015. It is still incredibly sleek but more conservative at the same time. This change is aimed at prolonging the longevity of the design and certainly geared towards drivers that want to blend in a little better.

Still, the sophisticated lines should not be mistaken as a regression when it comes to features and performance. Far from it, Hyundai has added new benefits to this year’s model that are far improved from the 2014 Sonata. One of the beneficial changes you will not see is how much quieter the sedan is while driving. If you have an earlier model, this single feature may be worth the upgrade.

Safety and Standout Features

This years’ model received a good rating from the IIHS and five-star federal scores. High marks for safety make it an even better choice for families and with new features like knee airbags for the driver and lane-change assist, the Sonata is safer than ever.

Well-appointed, this years’ model has more of the features drivers have come to love and come to expect in a modern sedan. You will receive many standard features, including:

  • Blind-spot monitors to help you avoid an accident.
  • Brilliant sound system.
  • Air conditioning.
  • Power everything for convenience.
  • Lane-change assist.
  • Bluetooth
  • 60/40 split in the rear seats so that you can fold down one or both.
  • Heated and powered side mirrors.
  • Adaptive cruise control.
  • Heated seats (optional)
  • Sunroof (optional)
  • Ventilated front seats that are ideal for hot weather (optional)
  • USB port so that you can listen to music from your phone, tablet, etc.

Made in the USA

This is the third version of the Sonata that Hyundai has manufactured right here in the states (Alabama). If you are looking for a made in the USA vehicle, Hyundai is exactly that. While most people think of American-brand cars to fulfill this need, on-shoring has become more common and Hyundai has created plenty of jobs at it’s Alabama plant.

 

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Has a Low Cost of Ownership

In addition to having a low purchase price, the Sonata has excellent gas mileage. EPA rated for 25mpg in the city and 38mpg on the highway, the Sonata rivals some hybrids and while you will not get quite as high of gas mileage, you are getting close for considerably less money. The cost of ownership is also driven down by the 5 year, 50,000 mile warranty that covers everything bumper to bumper. If anything goes wrong, regardless of what it is, you can take it to a dealership and have it fixed for free. That significantly reduced the cost of overall ownership and it is one of the reasons that the sedan received such high ratings.
