2018 Hyundai Sonata: Interior & Exterior

If you are looking for a sedan with a comfortable cabin, then the 2018 Hyundai Sonata has more head and legroom than any other mid-sized sedan. On top of that, front seats are available with both heating and cooling functions, and the steering wheel is also heated. Dual-zone climate control lets the driver and front passenger each set their own preferred temperature.

Tired of adjusting the mirrors and seat after every time your spouse uses your car? The 2018 Hyundai Sonata can save two different seat and mirror positions, so you can get them back to how you like them with the press of a button.

Convenient exterior features include standard automatic headlights, a hands-free smart trunk, heated side mirrors, and a proximity key that unlocks the doors as you approach.

2018 Hyundai Sonata: Engine Specs

Most new 2018 Hyundai Sonata owners will drive home in a model with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with generous horsepower and strong fuel economy. However, the Eco trim package comes with its own highly efficient turbocharged engine, and Sport models are equipped with a more powerful engine.
