Model Highlights

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata comes in three basic trims, SE, Sport and Limited. All three trims are powered by a 185 hp 2.4L 4-cylinder. This engine is mated to an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the front wheels, a combination that's good for up to 35 mpg on the highway. For prospective buyers who want a bit more power, Hyundai offers a 245 hp 2.0L turbocharged engine as an option on the Sport trim.

The Sonata SE is the least expensive trim, but still includes heated side mirrors, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, projector beam headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio and cruise control interfaces, USB and auxiliary input jacks and a 6-speaker stereo.

The Sport trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, side mirror mounted turn signals, a unique bumper and front grill, automatic headlights, a 5-inch color touch screen, an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat, heating for the front seats and chrome and carbon fiber accents throughout the interior. If buyers elect to get the more powerful 2.0L engine with the Sport trim they will also get 18-inch wheels in lieu of the 17-inch ones, HID headlights, aluminum pedals, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, leather seats, automatic climate control and vents for rear seat passengers.

The Limited Trim really steps up the luxury content of the car. It comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome front grill, LED tail lights, rear window shades, a 6-way power adjustable passenger seat to compliment the 8-way, power adjustable front seat for the driver, heated rear seats, leather seating, wood grain interior accents and an improved stereo that includes a subwoofer.

Part of the fun of the Sonata is that buyers can option the car up with features normally reserved for big luxury cars. Optional items on the Sonata include an eleven-speaker Infinity premium sound system, an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system, a 4.2-inch color LCD trip computer display, HD radio, an electronic parking brake with vehicle hold, an intelligent cruise control system, a heated steering wheel, vented and cooled front seats, a memory system for the drivers' seat and mirrors and HID xenon headlights.

Model News

The Hyundai Sonata is all new for 2015, Hyundai having given the car a total redesign. The most obvious change is to the exterior, where Hyundai's designers have managed to make the new car look even cleaner and more refined. However less obvious is the new interior, which will likely make the biggest difference in driver and passenger satisfaction. The new interior is cavernous for a car of its size, offering more space than just about any of its rivals.

Value Writeup

The 2015 Sonata is a midsized sedan, placing it in direct competition with several of the best selling cars in the country. Competing with the likes of the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord is no easy task, but Hyundai's typical strategy of packing a ton of value into their cars remains unchanged. The Sonata offers a lot of car for the money, undercutting its rivals in price, while simultaneously offering more interior volume and more upscale features. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata starts at $21,150.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.

Summary:
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2015 Sonata vehicles manufactured May 2, 2014, through May 23, 2014. A poor connection within the vehicle's wiring harness may result in a reduction of steering assist from the vehicle's motor driven power steering system or the inability to move the vehicle's shifter from the Park position.

Consequence:
The reduction of power steering assist can increase the steering effort needed, increasing the risk of a crash.

Summary:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 1.6 liter model year 2015 Sonata vehicles manufactured August 29, 2014, to October 28, 2014.

Consequence:
If the left axle shaft separates from the transaxle, the vehicle may stop moving, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, a separated axle shaft may allow the vehicle to roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.

Remedy:

Summary:
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Sonata vehicles manufactured May 28, 2014, to August 21, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with an Antilock Braking System (ABS) warning light intended to warn the driver if there is an ABS malfunction. In the event of an ABS malfunction, the Brake System warning light will illuminate, but the ABS warning light will not illuminate.

Consequence:
If the driver is alerted there is a brake system malfunction, but not specifically with the ABS system, the driver may operate the vehicle unaware that the vehicle's brakes may lock up during hard braking, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will update the ABS control unit software, free of charge. The recall is expected began on November 30, 2015. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 134.
