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.
