2015 Hyundai Sonata

It can be difficult to beat all that the new 2015 Hyundai Sonata offers car buyers. From its elegant exterior and powerful performance to the sophisticated interior and incredible warranty, this is a vehicle that truly stands apart from other sedans in its class. Those who want to get the best value in a sedan will not want to miss out on the new Sonata.

There are six unique trim levels for car buyers to choose from when buying the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, and even the base model starting at $21,150 has an impressive exterior that demands attention on the roads. With its sleek curves and sporty style, the Sonata has a trendy, upscale appearance that has the same caliber as pricey luxury sedans without the high price tag. All have a chrome grille with a signature Hyundai emblem. Lower priced models have a 16-inch wheel, and the more advanced models have a 17 or 18-inch wheel as standard equipment. Higher end models also come with standard exterior equipment like HID xenon headlights and LED tail lights, a rear diffuser, a sporty bumper and a hands-free smart trunk.

When you slide behind the wheel of the 2015 Hyundai, you will not be disappointed with what you find. Standard features in the base model include premium cloth seats and a metal-grain appearance throughout the cabin. You will also get a stereo system with MP3 and Sirius radio capabilities. The most advanced trim levels are loaded with extras. These include leather seating, a sunroof, power and memory seats for the driver and front passenger, heated front and rear seats, an advanced entertainment and sound system and loads of other extras. While these are standard items on the top trim level, you can add your choice of extras to many of the mid-level trim options to customize your driving experience.

When you start up the engine to take the Sonata for a test drive, you will love the power of this car. The lower trim levels come with a four cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 178 pounds of torque. The higher trim levels have a four cylinder turbo engine that has 245 horsepower and 260 pounds of torque. Some models also have a sport-tuned suspension and a rack-mounted steering column for optimal performance. The fuel economy varies from trim to trim, but generally you can expect to receive about 25 miles per gallon in the city and 35 on the highway. The Sonata is highly fuel efficient, and this means that you will enjoy a lower cost of ownership with the Sonata than with many other vehicles in this class. Altogether, regardless of the trim level that you select, the Sonata is a powerful sedan that simply refuses to disappoint you with the driving experience.

The 2015 Sonata was designed to give drivers a comfortable and even luxurious driving experience without the high price tag, but it was also designed with safety in mind. The base trim package includes a driver’s blind spot mirror to help you stay safe on the road. With advanced trim packages, you will also enjoy safety features like automatic high beam assist, a forward collision warning alert, rear parking assistance, smart cruise control, a lane departure warning feature, a rearview camera and a blind spot detection feature with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert features.

After test driving the Sonata, the only thing left to do will be to pick out your trim level. The trim levels include the SE, the Sport, the Eco, the Limited, the Sport 2.0T and the Limited 2.0T. Each of the trim levels has different standard and optional features, so you may want to select the trim level that most closely appeals to your needs for extra features and to your budget. The top of the line trim level that is loaded with all of the extras is the Limited 2.0T, and it is priced reasonably at $33,525.

While there are many factors to consider when making your decision about which vehicle to buy, few car buyers will be disappointed with all that the Sonata has to offer. When you consider the affordable price of even the most advanced trim level and the many high-end features loaded into the Sonata, you will discover that the Sonata is truly hard to beat. In addition, with the fact that the Hyundai models come with a 10-year warranty, you can rest assured that you are making a great buying decision when you purchase any of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata trim levels.

From the sight of sleek curves to the sound of a roaring engine, old and new, she has a great love for vehicles of all makes and models. What she finds most exciting is that automakers of iconic muscle cars from the past, such as Ford and Chevrolet, are reproducing them for this generation of gearheads. Her dream car, the 1964 or 1966 Ford Mustang, is the ultimate American pony car and paved the way for her love of growling and rumbling engines of old school muscle cars. She spent her whole life in the Midwest and still finds herself playing the same game she once played with her father when she was a young girl. It’s a game her father liked to call “Name that make and model”. This game has become more challenging as the years pass making it a great way to pass the time on long road trips. She believes that automobiles, old and new, are an art form that can be enjoyed by both children and adults.
