2016 Hyundai Sonata Buyer's Guide

By now, anyone with the ability to read knows that value is traditionally one of Hyundai’s long suits. This is especially true when it comes to the Korean marque’s bread and butter mid-size sedan. Keep in mind; this is one of the most competitive categories in the automotive marketplace. In this arena, builders tend to come with their A-games in full effect. Thus, for the 2016 model year, Hyundai has added a seven-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple Car Play—as well as a rearview camera and automatic headlights—to Sonata’s already lengthy standard features list. Further, the 2016 Sonata’s suspension system has been tweaked to improve handling, while maintaining favorable ride comfort. Additionally, the top of the line Sonata Limited 2.0T gets automatic emergency braking.

What makes it move?

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata sedan offers a choice of three four-cylinder engines. A six-speed automatic transmission is paired with each—except the 1.6-liter turbo, which gets a seven-speed automatic. The 2.4-liter makes 185 horsepower, 178 ft-lbs of torque, and averages 29 miles per gallon overall. The turbocharged 2.0-liter makes 245 horsepower, 260 ft-lbs. and averages some 26 miles per gallon overall. The most frugal choice among them is the Sonata’s 1.6-liter turbo, which averages 32 mpg while generating 178 horsepower and 195 ft-lbs of torque.

Why buy the 2016 Hyundai Sonata?

The 2016 Sonata’s key attributes include Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system, which garners emergency roadside assistance, automatic crash response, and remote door locking and unlocking. Bluelink also provides the capability of monitoring speed, geo-fencing, and curfew limits for parents with teen drivers. Further, NHTSA rates the Sonata a five-star car in crashworthiness. Quiet, with outstanding ride quality, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata’s dynamics are a marked improvement over its predecessor’s. For a remarkable surprise, go with the Sonata Eco. In addition to being quicker than the Sonata 2.0T, the Eco delivers superior fuel economy. What’s more, on top of the features we covered earlier, every 2016 Sonata comes standard with heated exterior mirrors, automatic headlights, Bluetooth, and cruise control. Plus, there’s Hyundai’s extremely generous 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
