2020 - 2025 Hyundai Sonata

OEM Exterior Primary
- 2025 Coming Soon -

With the Hyundai Sonata receiving a hefty mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year, we expect the 2025 Hyundai Sonata to arrive as a carryover model without any major changes. Hyundai did a lot to the Sonata last year, so the sedan will continue to feel fresh in the midsize segment. As a carryover model, the 2025 Hyundai Sonata should have the same overall exterior design as the current Sonata that's on sale. The Sonata features a bold, daring design with an angular front fascia. A thin light... Read more

2015 - 2019 Hyundai Sonata

OEM Exterior Primary

Family sedans may not be the most innovative segment of the market, but sometimes that's not a bad thing. The 2019 Hyundai Sonata hits where it counts: comfort, features, technology, and, above all, value. The Sonata returns unchanged for 2019. Hyundai has dropped the ?Plus' nomenclature from Sport and Limited 2.0T trims, but the specs remain the same. The Sonata comes in front-wheel drive only, with a buyer's choice of three engines, each with a unique transmission. Most Sonatas roll off lot... Read more

2011 - 2014 Hyundai Sonata

OEM Exterior Primary

Hyundai Sonata has transformed the midsize sedan market by introducing a novel concept: aggressive styling. Sonata challenged the gatekeepers that have traditionally won customers by playing it safe. The Sonata is for drivers who don't want another run-of-the-mill Toyota Camry or Honda Accord in their garage. The Sonata beefs up options in its various packages this year, and offers slight tweaks like a revised grille and a quieter cabin. Other new standard features include HID headlights, LED ...

2006 - 2010 Hyundai Sonata

OEM Exterior Primary

Motivation comes from a 175-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, with the choice of a five-speed manual or a Shiftronic five-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful 249-hp 3.3-liter V6 mated to a Shiftronic five-speed automatic transmission is also available.

1999 - 2001 Hyundai Sonata


Can a Hyundai turn heads? Well, the current-generation Sonata certainly turned ours. Neatly handsome, with crisply tailored proportions, Sonata looks solid and expensive. It sounds that way too when you close the doors, or when you fire up the top model's smooth V6 engine. Sonata offers the safety, comfort, and performance of other mid-size cars costing $5,000 more. That's value that's hard to beat. And, oh yes, here's one more head-turner. Check out Hyundai's warranty: Called Hyundai Advantage, it extends basic protection to five years or 60,000 miles and includes 24-hour roadside assistance.... Read more

1995 - 1998 Hyundai Sonata


Hyundai got its toehold in the United States with inexpensive little cars, and it's now reaching up both in size and quality with its all-new midsize Sonata. This 4-door sedan will have to compete with the likes of Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Taurus and a host of others. That may seem like stiff competition for Hyundai, but the Sonata definitely has its own attributes: It may be more car for less money than any other midsize sedan you can buy. Additionally, the people at Hyundai - both in Korea and the United States - have made great efforts to bring quality up to par, and the current lin... Read more

1992 - 1994 Hyundai Sonata


If you're looking to say nice things about the updated 1995 Hyundai Sonata, simply compare it to the model it replaced. The South Korean car maker's first-generation midsize sedan sang decidedly off-key. No wonder it failed to impress many American motorists. The newly redesigned Sonata plays a much more refined song. It's better looking , and the interior layout finally makes some sense. From first glance, at least, it appears better-built. Hyundai's big draw has always been a low price tag, and the new Sonata will remain attractive to those looking for a relatively big car on a small budget.... Read more
