2018 Hyundai Sonata

Come see the new 2018 Hyundai Sonata at Suntrup Hyundai in St. Louis, MO!

The 2018MY Sonata builds on the legacy of the previous model that was named the 2017 Best Midsize Car for the Money by U.S. News & World Report and Best Family Car by Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com for three consecutive years. Created at Hyundai's California Design Studio with American aesthetic tastes in mind, the redesigned 2018 Sonata enters the market with a distinctive new exterior design that reimagines the front and rear appearance of the vehicle. Extensive appearance changes were made possible with new sheet metal for the sculpted hood, front fenders, and trunk. The results are a more dynamic front fascia with a new "cascading grille" shape while the rear of the vehicle has a sleeker, coupe-like appearance with the placement of the license plate in the bumper. In addition, redesigned alloy wheels (16, 17, and 18-inch) and distinctive illumination from vertical LED DRLs, LED headlights and LED taillights further highlight the assertive and advanced exterior design.

INTERIOR


Inside, the renewed center stack and instrument panel now create more visual dimension and premium feel to echo the exterior's eye-catching new looks. The trend carries down to a sporty three-spoke steering wheel, piano key buttons for audio and HVAC controls give a premium appearance while the standard 7-inch color audio is prominently displayed.

All 2018 Sonata models are standard equipped with an audio touchscreen with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® integration. Models equipped with Blue Link Telematics get 3-years of complimentary Connected Care and Remote services; including the ability to activate many of the features using virtual assistants Amazon Echo and Google Home. Available navigation systems are enhanced with a bird's eye view feature, HERE HD real-time traffic flow data, and 3-years of complimentary Guidance Package. Furthermore, the inconvenience of outdated map software is now a thing of the past as owners now have 3-years of complimentary downloads to maintain up-to-date navigation programming on the system's SD card via the MyHyundai website.

Keeping on-trend with today's connected passengers, smartphones can now be charged without a plug using the available wireless charging pad (Qi standard) while a second row USB charge port provides additional charging options.

RIDE & HANDLING


The current Sonata received very high praise by owners and automotive journalists for its ride & handling but Hyundai engineers further refined the chassis for the 2018 model. To achieve this feat, the rear suspension was updated with 21% thicker trailing arms to better manage heavy suspension loads while new bushings allow for more ride compliance and quicken response times. The steering system's torsion bar stiffness has been increased by 12% to improve steering responsiveness and a new steering calibration further improves on-center feel.

The top-of-the-line 2.0T engine is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which adds ratio range at both the top and bottom of output speeds for improved performance and efficiency. The 2.0-liter turbo models ride on 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin tires.

SAFETY


Adding to an already impressive list of standard safety equipment, all 2018 Sonata are equipped with Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA). The Sonata is the only mainstream Midsize car sold with this safety technology as standard equipment. Despite drivers spending less than 1% of their driving time in reverse, nearly one-quarter of all accidents happen when someone is backing up. Working in conjunction with the standard rearview backup camera, RCTA gives drivers peace of mind that the road behind them is clear. Furthermore, the Lane Departure Warning system is now enhanced with Lane Keep Assist function.
