2016 Hyundai Sonata: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

If you’re looking for information on a newer Hyundai Sonata, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Hyundai Sonata Review

It has always been a tough fight to be at the top in the midsize sedan segment. Believe it or not, the Hyundai Sonata has been in the ring since 1988. Here are five reasons why the 2016 Hyundai Sonata keeps getting better year after year.

Generous Cabin Space

Inside, you might be fairly surprised at how much room the Sonata offers. It has class-leading passenger and total interior space in comparison some fine midsize competitors. Stand over six-feet tall? Not a problem. Even the trunk has 16.3 cu ft., so you can pack more on road trips.

Pump Saver

Hyundai makes six fuel efficient trims of the Sonata, not including the hybrid or plug-in hybrid. In base SE form, you’ll see 25 miles per gallon in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, which are definitely above average. The Eco trim returns 28 mpg city/38 mpg hwy, and the Hybrid version delivers a combined 42 mpg. Whichever you choose, you’ll be saving. See the 2016 Hyundai Sonata models for sale near you

Fine Features

With a long list of features and starting under $22,000, the Sonata has exceptional value. Heated mirrors, a rear vanity spoiler, and 16-inch alloys are standard. A premium list of options include heated rear seats, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and even rear side sunshades, providing sun protection for kids and passengers.


Hyundai gave the Sonata a 7-in infotainment system which has some amazing capability aside from standard Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Also coming standard is Android Auto, a system that basically allows you to connect your compatible smartphone to the car with a special personalized feel. The Sonata was the first car ever to have Android Auto and you’ll see many, many more following suit in the near future.


With more drivers and cars, more weather elements and more variables, safety today is as important as ever. The Sonata earned an overall five star government crash test rating. If that’s not enough, a standard rearview camera and Blue Link telematics system offers reassuring safety support.
