Safety is a strong point for the 2008 Sonata; anti-lock brakes, six air bags, and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard across the line. Hyundai says that the Sonata is the only mid-size sedan priced under $20,000 with standard ESC. It's also earned the federal government's top five-star crash-test results for frontal and side impacts. Actually, the Sonata is classified by the EPA as a large car, as it is larger in interior space and trunk space than other mid-size vehicles like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Hyundai has dropped the price of the Sonata GLS V6 model by $450 for 2008, and made the more frugal four-cylinder engine available with all trim levels. The sporty SE model gets new performance tires and a rear spoiler, along with a new power driver's seat, and the high-end Limited model now gets new aluminum trim outside, and the Infinity high-end audio system as part of its standard equipment. Both GLS and SE models get new premium cloth upholstery.
Hyundai's front-wheel-drive Sonata comes in three value-priced models for 2008: GLS, SE, and Limited. Each is available with either a 162-horsepower, 2.4L four-cylinder engine or a 234-horsepower, 3.3L V6. The GLS and SE four-cylinder models have a standard five-speed manual transmission; a four-speed automatic is optional on those trims and standard on the Limited. All three trims get a five-speed automatic when equipped with the V6.
