2020 Hyundai Sonata Manchester NH

       

   
       

Overview

       

At the New York International Auto Show back in April 2019, the gorgeously redesigned 2020 Hyundai Sonata was unveiled to wide approval. Starting this autumn, eager drivers will be able to get their hands on this exciting new addition to Hyundai's lineup, which will of course bring with it the best warranty (10 years/100,000 miles) in the industry.

       

The trim levels offered will be the SE, SEL, SEL Plus, and Limited. For each of these trims, buyers can choose to the base 2.5-liter conventional GDI engine or upgrade to the 1.7-liter T-GDI (turbocharged) engine, both of which will come paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The new GDI engine boasts 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque, while the typically higher-torque turbo T-GDI produces 180 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque for increased zip. Regarding fuel economy, the naturally aspirated base engine should get an EPA estimated combined city and highway 33 mpg, while the turbo is expected to achieve 31 mpg combined.

Convenient Features

   

As Hyundai's flagship vehicle, the 2020 Sonata will be generously packed with upscale and intuitive features more typically reserved for higher-priced vehicles. Some examples will include a sunroof, a wireless smartphone charging pad, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Bluetooth featuring text-to-speech, heated and ventilated front seats, and split-folding rear seats. A standard 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes standard on the base trim, while higher trims are eligible for an upgraded system with a larger screen, navigation featuring a HERE TD Traffic system, and cloud-based speech recognition through Hyundai Blue Link. For the Limited trim, an enhanced display that is 12.3 inches diagonal comes standard, offering four distinct modes: utility, driver assistance, navigation, and parking assistance. Another distinctly upscale all-new option for the '20 Sonata will be a super high-quality twelve-speaker Bose audio system for the upper trim levels.

   

Perhaps the most exciting and innovative feature is the Hyundai Digital Key, a technology that will make its debut with this 2020 Sonata (available for the SEL and SEL Plus trim levels). This system utilizes Near Field Communication (NFC) technology and wireless data communications to allow the user's smartphone to start the car (as well as lock or unlock it, activate the panic alarm, and open the trunk) from the proximity of a few centimeters.

   
   

   

Driver Assistance Tech

   

Hyundai's SmartSense suite of advanced driver assistance systems provide functionality - and more importantly, safety - that is often only available for luxury vehicles. These features include forward collision assistance, lane keeping assist, advanced smart cruise control with stop-and-go technology, or the optional highway driving assist, which helps the car stay within the center lane while maintaining ample distance from the car directly in front. Aside from the safety aspect, the Blue Link technology mentioned briefly above comes standard on every Sonata for the first three years and can then be included through a paid subscription. Enhancements have been made to Blue Link during this Sonata redesign, allowing things such as vehicle status notification, which is useful if a driver forgets to lock their doors or close their windows. If this happens, an alert will be sent remotely via smartphone to the driver. Blue Link also features remote start enhancements such as profile selection, which will preload individual driver settings for seating and mirror positions.
