Meet the Redesigned and Refreshed, Hyundai Sonata

35 years after its initial debut on American roads, the Hyundai Sonata is still going strong, delivering a ride that's smooth and responsive, and an interior that's spacious and well-equipped. At Buerkle Hyundai, the Sonata has long been one of our favorite cars to recommend to St. Paul, MN drivers with distinct taste, and we're thrilled to bring you the latest generation of this model line, the seventh generation that kicks off with the Hyundai Sonata.

What's New for the Hyundai Sonata?

As the model that launches a whole new Sonata generation, there's a lot to know about the model year. This is a car that's completely refreshed and reinvigorated, and Minneapolis and White Bear Lake drivers should plan on seeing it in person to fully absorb all the virtues and benefits of driving this new model.

The first thing longtime Sonata fans will notice about the model is the design. This car has been overhauled and redesigned, presenting Roseville, MN drivers with a sleek and sophisticated sedan that stands out from the crowd. Not only has the Hyundai Sonata frontend gotten a facelift with LED headlights and daytime running lights, the entire car rides on a completely different platform. This new platform makes the Sonata refined and sharp, with new dimensions that include:

  • An overall height that is one inch lower
  • One inch wider
  • A wheelbase that's pushed further apart, giving the car two more inches lengthwise

A redesign you'll notice coming from a distance, there's a lot more going on inside the car that makes it one of the most remarkable new models.

Under the Hood of the Hyundai Sonata

The Sonata gets more standard power from its base engine to go with its stunning redesign. Whereas previous model year versions received 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the model gets a similar engine system, except now it puts out 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque.

Looking for an upgrade? The Hyundai Sonata also has a more-powerful engine available for upper trims that Inver Grove Heights drivers will appreciate. A turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, this available option delivers slightly less horsepower, at 180, but packs on the torque, giving you 195 pound-feet of torque.

Trim Level Options for the Hyundai Sonata

Another place where Hyundai has reinvigorated the Sonata lineup for is in its list of available trims. The carmaker has streamlined our range of choices from six trims to four, and each one delivers a robust collection of standard tech and safety features that other sedans in this class would struggle to keep pace with. Trim options include:

  • Hyundai Sonata SE, the base model comes with cloth upholstery and a slew of sought-after safety features, including forward collision avoidance, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, driver attention monitor, and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.

  • Hyundai Sonata SEL, the next trim in the bunch has a sportier feel and personality, giving you a unique exterior design that includes a dual-tip muffler, front sport fascia and rear sport fascia. It also adds blind spot monitoring to the list of safety features and a number of exciting creature comfort features, such as heated seats and a hands-free trunk release.
  • Hyundai Sonata Limited, powered by the upgraded, turbocharged engine, this model gets leather upholstery and upgraded tires, as well as reverse automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, and a multi-angle camera system added to the list of safety features. Many luxurious amenities are also included here, including ventilated seats and ambient interior lighting.
