2022 Hyundai Sonata review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Hyundai Sonata?

The front-wheel-drive Hyundai Sonata is a sleek, modern, five-seat mid-size sedan. Engine choices include a standard 191-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder; an available 180-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder; and a 290-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the N Line trim level. A conventional eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, while the 290-hp four-cylinder gets an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Sonata offers 19.8 cubic feet of trunk space, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements.

A gas-electric hybrid powertrain goes in the Sonata Hybrid, which is EPA-rated up to 52 mpg combined. Sonata competitors include the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry.

What’s New on the 2022 Hyundai Sonata?

There’s a new Night Edition for the performance-oriented N Line trim that features a unique spoiler and special wheels and badges, but there are no other significant changes.

What Features in the 2022 Hyundai Sonata Are Most Important? 

Standard features include:

  • LED headlights
  • Cloth upholstery
  • 60/40-split folding backseat
  • 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane-keeping assist

Available features include:

  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Hands-free trunk lid
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • 25-inch touchscreen navigation system
  • Bose premium stereo
  • Wireless device charging
  • Head-up display
  • Digital Key for Android phones
  • 360-degree camera system
  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert

Should I Buy the 2022 Hyundai Sonata?

The Sonata is a spacious and well-equipped family sedan with distinctive styling and more available high-tech features than some competitors. The car’s push-button console gear selector doesn’t free up any extra storage space, however, and we wish the 10.25-inch touchscreen had a tuning knob.

Avoid this car

This is my 3rd and last Sonata. The car is a royal pain. It automatically sets the parking brake even on level ground. The push button gear shift mechanism often has to be pushed multiple times before the selected gear will engage. The computer screens flip randomly from time to time. You have to disengage the engine start/stop system every time you get in the car. This is just not a user friendly vehicle.

Miguel Ortiz was my salesman at Hyundai in Trenton NJ. He was very knowledgeable and professional. It was a pleasure doing business with him and the dealership. It was a pleasant experience and I love the new Sonata. I highly recommend this business, Miguel and the entire staff.
