2012 Hyundai Sonata

2012 Hyundai Sonata – Car Review by Lauren Fix, The Car Coach

The 2012 Hyundai Sonata has had a fresh, full redesign. Let’s take a closer look.

Vehicle — 2012 Hyundai Sonata
MPG — 24 city/35 hwy. mpg
Engine – 2.4L 4-cyl. engine with 198 horsepower
6-speed automatic transmission
Price –prices start around $20,000
Safety – Standard features include Hyundai’s new Blue Link infotainment and safety service, antilock brakes, side curtain airbags, Bluetooth, iPod input, satellite radio, stability and traction Control and steering wheel-mounted audio/cruise controls. Navigation System is optional.

My test drive in the 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE provided a balance of comfort and control. The stylish coupe has enough power to pass almost any other car on the road due to dual-exhaust that increases the engine output to 200-hp.

The Sonata is a four-door, five-passenger sedan that has an established reputation for being well-built and an excellent value.

The front-wheel drive Sonata is offered in five trim levels: GLS, SE, SE 2.0T, Limited, and Limited 2.0T

Competes with –

Toyota Camry SE

Volkswagen Passat VR6 SEL

KIA Optima

Chevrolet Malibu

Honda Accord

Ford Fusion

Likes-

Lots of standard options

Stylish and comfortable interior
Great fuel economy

Long warranty

Dislikes-

Low-quality cloth seats

Base engine can be sluggish during highway passing

The 2012 Hyundai Sonata is a midsize sedan that is fresh, stylish and loaded with the latest technology for less than $30,000. It offers a large volume of features for its price.

Remember, when shopping for a new car, test drive as many vehicles as you can in the class you are looking in to make sure you find the car that is best for you.
