2018 Hyundai Sonata Review

See the full article here. More often than not, when a car company does a facelift of an existing model, it does its very best to get away with calling the revision an ‘all-new’ car, but that’s not the case with the updated Hyundai Sonata, even if the 2018 model sees major design and mechanical changes...

2017 Hyundai Sonata revealed in New York

The smartly facelifted 2018 Hyundai Sonata is gearing up for its Australian release later this year with a host of mechanical, cosmetic and interior changes that will see a revitalisation of the Toyota Camry rival in the medium can segment. The Sonata Series II, which will be the model year 2018 (MY18), is scheduled to land in Australian dealerships in the third quarter of this year, with Hyundai Australia still working out the model range and pricing...

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)...

2020 Hyundai Sonata revealed, Australian launch this year

Get a load of the new Hyundai Sonata! The new one is no bland yet practical three-box sedan, but rather a sleek 'four-door coupe' in the mould of Volkswagen's Arteon. This is the eighth-generation model to wear the name, and returns the moniker to the sort of overtly design-led direction embodied by the long-gone i45...

2002 Hyundai Sonata GL review

The year is 2002. Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had just called it off, Kath and Kim aired, the VY Commodore and BA Falcon were introduced, and Hyundai was regarded as cheap and unexciting ‘Junk’. Now while that may have been the case back then, it didn’t stop the Sonata from being our first brand-new car...

2015 Hyundai Sonata Active review

I have driven Alfa Romeos for at least the last 10 years and I love them. There is a magical quality about them but they are also flawed in some ways. Recently, my wife had an operation and spent a week in hospital. The journey home was excruciating for her when I picked her up in my pride and joy with 19-inch low profile wheels and rock hard suspension...

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...
