The Hyundai Sonata is a stylish midsize sedan that's a smart choice for long trips and your daily commute. So, how do you know if it's the right midsize sedan for you? Maguire Hyundai can help drivers in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre decide with this review of the Hyundai Sonata specs.

Specs & Fuel Economy

There are two powertrains available for the Hyundai Sonata. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder that gets up to 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. This works with a capable 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. With this combination under the hood, the Hyundai Sonata can get up to an EPA-estimated 26 MPG city and 35 MPG highway.*

The more athletic engine is a 2.0L twin-scroll turbo 4-cylinder that can produce up to 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. To manage the added power, this engine works with an 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. On top of providing you with a higher output, it achieves impressive fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.*

Interior Dimensions

The Hyundai Sonata has space for up to five people with 106.1 cubic feet of passenger volume. This comfortable interior offers cloth or leather seats as well as features like power-adjustable front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a heated steering wheel. Whichever amenities you choose to add, everyone on board will have plenty of room to relax.

Behind the cabin, there's 16.3 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk. You can extend this and load more by using the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats. A hands-free smart trunk with auto open is also available to help you start loading even when you've got your hands full.

Safety Features

The Hyundai Sonata is also designed to protect you in any situation. It keeps you safe and in control with a standard Traction Control System, an energy-absorbing steering column, and both front and rear crumple zones. These are designed to direct force away from the interior during an accident.

To help keep you safe and secure inside, there are seven airbags, including a driver's knee airbag and side-curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. Everyone can strap in tight, too, with Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and front seatbelt pretensioners.

During your drive, you can also rely on advanced driver-assistance features to help prevent accidents. For example, the standard Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist lets you know when the coast is clear to change lanes or back up.

You can even check behind your car when you put it in reverse. The rearview camera uses your infotainment system's dashboard screen to provide you with a clear look at what's behind you.
