The Hyundai Sonata broke new ground with the 2011 model, taking some lines from Mercedes and blowing up the Camry/Accord category with styling that caught the eye and safety ratings that warmed a mother's heart. Now the four year run of that sleek, edgy Sonata body comes to a close--and the 2015 Sonata is a logical step for the settled sedan. It's a little more modest, having grown out of its more daring coming out years. But the new 2015 Sonata sports a sexy maturity that only its recent heritage could allow.
The 2015 Sonata will give you either 185 horsepower or 245 horses should you choose a 2.0-liter turbo model. The curves this year look more dashing than dangerous, but the Sonata's new maturity hasn't made it any less frugal--the Sonata still shines at the pump with 32 mpg for the Eco model and even 28 mpg for the turbo. And there's a hybrid, which is still sewing its oats apparently--because the 38 mpg hybrid 2015 Sonata is the only model still sheathed in the previous year's sharp body. The new Hyundai Sonata is--across the board--a terrific fresh entry to the crowded family sedan category. It should keep Hyundai firmly on its upward trajectory.
