Significant Updates for the 2018 Hyundai Sonata

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is one of the best entries in the midsize car class. It’s the winner of our 2017 Best Midsize Car for the Money award and a finalist for the 2017 Best Midsize Car for Families award. The current Sonata was introduced as a 2015 model, and considering the accolades it’s collected, it probably could have coasted along a while longer before a midcycle refresh, but the stakes are high in this category.

The 2017 Sonata covers all the basics needed to succeed in the class: a low entry price, comfortable five-passenger seating, good cargo capacity, strong safety scores, and above-average reliability. Based on what Hyundai has shared so far, the 2018 Sonata will keep those qualities intact while offering significant improvements in other areas. Here’s what we can expect from the refreshed 2018 Hyundai Sonata, revealed this April at the New York International Auto Show.
