Hyundai is dedicated to quality and comfort, and the SONATA and the ELANTRA are two of the best sedans on the market. The SONATA first appeared in the mid-1980s, and the ELANTRA was close behind, with the first model released in 1990. Perfect for families, the SONATA is best known for its outstanding comfort features and impressive space, making it ideal for traveling with passengers.
The ELANTRA also has many benefits, one of the most popular being its affordable price. It has also received great reliability scores over the years, so you might go with this model if you’re looking to purchase a car that you can keep for a long time.
The Hyundai SONATA has a starting MSRP of $25,450 when you choose the base trim level. The SONATA has eight trim levels, each offering more exciting features as you work your way up the line. Five trims, the SE, SEL, SEL Plus, N Line, and Limited, are gas-powered models. Three hybrid trims provide increased fuel efficiency and environmental sustainability: the Blue, SEL, and Limited.
The Hyundai SONATA’s performance is impressive, with the base trim coming standard with a 2.5-liter multipoint injection/gasoline direct injection (GDI) four-cylinder engine that achieves 191 hp. You can get even more power on higher trims, such as the 2.5-liter Turbo GDI four-cylinder on the N Line model that achieves 290 hp. The fuel economy for the SONATA starts at 32 mpg combined, with 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
In terms of safety features, the SONATA has you more than covered. It includes various assist systems within the Hyundai SmartSense suite that keep drivers safe, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Remote Smart Parking Assist, and Safe Exit Warning. There’s also Lane Following Assist and Highway Driving Assist, which are especially helpful on those long highway drives. For families with small children, there’s even Rear Occupant Alert, which reminds you to check your back passenger seats before leaving and locking your doors.
There are a variety of paint color options available for the SONATA’s exterior that you can apply to all trim levels. Color choices include white, black, Hampton Gray, red, silver, Portofino Gray, and blue. The exterior also features chrome accents and a striking front grille, with the Hyundai logo nestled in the middle. There are also LED headlights, making it easy to maintain visibility at night and during inclement weather.
On the interior, you can choose black or gray cloth for lower trims and black or gray leather for more luxurious trims. There’s also an impressive suite of technology features inside, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. You won’t even need a key to get inside your SONATA, as the model uses Hyundai Digital Key, which lets you unlock your car from your mobile phone. You’ll also enjoy the perks of a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster, making it easy to switch from navigation to entertainment and back.
The Hyundai ELANTRA has a starting MSRP of $20,950 when you go with the SE base trim. Three other trim levels are available for the ELANTRA: the SEL, Limited, and N Line. The first three trims come equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that achieves 147 hp, and the N Line adds even more power with a 1.6-liter Turbo GDI four-cylinder that reaches 201 hp. The ELANTRA also performs well in terms of fuel economy, with a combined 37 mpg and 42 mpg on the highway and 33 mpg in the city for the SE.
The safety features on the ELANTRA are also exceptional, including many of the same Hyundai SmartSense features as the SONATA. For example, there’s Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist, High Beam Assist, and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. All these features, and more, work to protect you and your passengers while on the road, keeping you, other drivers, and nearby pedestrians safe.
On the exterior, you can choose between six different colors, including gray, red, black, white, and blue. There’s also the same impressive front grille as on the SONATA, though the ELANTRA places the Hyundai logo above the grille instead of within it. You can choose black or gray for the interior colors, adding melange with gray as an option for the Limited trim.
The ELANTRA is also filled with exciting tech features, such as a hands-free smart trunk release, making it as easy as ever to load up your cargo and get on the road. There’s also an 8-inch color touch-screen display for audio and navigation, allowing you to connect to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. To keep your devices charged, you can enjoy the wireless charging pad, available at an additional cost. You’ll also get the Bluelink Connected Car service to help you with your planning and navigation.
