We remember, from the very first time that stunning Hyundai Sonata hit the global car markets (now in the distant 2011), the vast majority of people weren’t that thrilled. We were, in fact, quite satisfied with general performances of this lovable midsize sedan. Although it has never been the leader in its class, the Sonata’s developers never gave up from designing this vehicle. Every single year (to say quite roughly) they have been improving the Sonata’s design, by boosting and spreading its spectrum offering more potent and much more reliable powertrain options.
So, the brand new, sixth generation of stunning Sonata cars is intended to come along with more than a several refreshments, upgrades and modifications. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata is planned to offer: revised exterior styling, much roomier and enchanted interior, a more than a several high-tech gadgets, which have been especially designed in order to help the Sonata remain competitive among midsize sedans and a brand new Eco trim level.
