What Is the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?
The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is a mid-size sedan that seats up to five. It comes in gas, gas-electric hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. The gas version offers three engines: a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder; a 178-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder; and a 245-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
Both the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models have a 154-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but while the hybrid has a 1.76-kilowatt-hour battery, the plug-in hybrid has a larger 9.8-kwh battery pack. The plug-in hybrid can travel up to 28 miles on electric power alone, the EPA says.
What’s New on the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?
The Sonata Hybrid Limited adds automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, and an electronic parking brake.
What Features in the 2019 Hyundai Sonata Are Most Important?
Standard features include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split, folding backseat, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth, and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.
Upscale options include hands-free trunk operation, LED headlights and taillights, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, wireless device charging, navigation with a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and an Infinity premium stereo.
Should I Buy the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?
The Sonata is quiet, comfortable and has user-friendly technology, but its base four-cylinder is just adequate, and the sedan’s interior quality could be better. The availability of efficient hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions is a plus, but there are some good mid-size sedans available — it’s worth your while to check out the competition and find the one that best fits your needs.
