2015 Hyundai Sonata Review: Long-term report three

Our final update with the new mid-size Hyundai Sonata Premium...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Review: Long-term report two

When the senior journos here at CarAdvice informed us that we had secured the 2015 Hyundai Sonata as our latest long-termer, I have to admit that I did not sprint over to the key bowl and beg for a drive. My limited imagination has always struggled to see where mid-sized sedans have a place within the spectrum of Australian car buyers’ needs or wants...

We've got a new long-termer in the Sydney office - the range-topping 2015 Hyundai Sonata Premium. First impressions here...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Elite Speed Date

The Hyundai Sonata Elite arrived in the CarAdvice garage ahead of its involvement in our medium sedan comparison. The recently released Sonata has a major point of difference to that trio of rivals, however: a turbocharged engine. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine produces 180kW and 350Nm - the same as a $70K-plus BMW 328i...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Review

http://www.caradvice.com.au/336166/?yt_desc - Read the article here. The new Hyundai Sonata benefits from the company's Fluidic Design 2.0 and is a genuinely attractive sedan. With three time grades and two petrol engines to choose from - the pick a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder - it's also a tremendous value proposition as well.

Kia Optima GT v Hyundai Sonata Premium : Comparison Review

There’s something to be said for sibling rivalry. Brothers and sisters often grow up trying to outdo one another, and to an extent the same can be said of car companies. Okay, so there probably aren’t awkward family photos of a Hyundai peering out of the corner of its headlight at a Kia...

Hyundai i40 Premium v Hyundai Sonata Premium: Comparison review

Australia’s mid-sized sedan market might be smaller than a few years ago, but Hyundai is one brand that for good or bad remains intent on covering the bases. In one corner is the recently released Sonata, which we’ve compared favourably against a number of segment rivals such as the Mazda 6 (as you can read here)...

Hyundai Australia "pretty happy" with sales in slow-moving mid-sizer segment

Despite the seventh-generation Hyundai Sonata failing to significantly impact the mid-sized sedan segment since launching locally back in February 2015, Hyundai Australia says it is happy enough with the model's current sales figures...

2017 Hyundai Sonata pricing and specifications: Better rubber, more kit, higher prices

Australian pricing and details for the newly updated 2017 Hyundai Sonata have been released today, with the new range in showrooms right now.

Hyundai Sonata recalled over braking, stability control concerns

Hyundai Australia has issued a recall on models in its all-new Sonata range, over a potential fault with its stability control system. The concern centres on an incorrect fitment of brake tubing or a seal ring on the brake booster system, which the carmaker says could increase the risk of braking problems when electronic stability control is activated...

2016 Hyundai Sonata Active Review

The Hyundai Sonata is a good midsize car that really challenges class leaders. But for some reason it has been a very slow selling model. The particular model here the base Active is really well priced and equipped considering its drive away price is about $30k and the step up to the next model Elite is $7000. It comes with features such as a reversing camera with sensors, 4...

2005 Hyundai Sonata Elite Review

The 2005 Hyundai Sonata was excellent value when new, and represents even better value as a used car as prices continue to drop. A clean, modern design allows for class-leading interior space and comfort, yet the fit and finish of the interior plastics are not up to Japanese standards. The 3...


I previously owned a Mazda 3 Diesel and wanted a slightly bigger car. I really wanted a used Mazda 6, but at $20k+ a for 60k km 2008-09 vintage model, this $14k+ Sonata made too much sense - there's no safety or convenience equipment missing from this car, so well equipped it is. And its interior dash is one of the classier dashes...


We bought this 2001 Sonata Classique new and it has been a good car but it does prove the saying that you can't please everybody all the time. It is my wife's car and she absolutely loves it, how it looks, how it feels and how it performs. I on the other hand don't share her enthusiasm. The difference is that I am a car nut and my wife just wants a car that goes and goes and is comfortable...
