I love my 2018 sonata, black beauty!

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I love the way my 2018 Hyundai sonata se looks! It is black and gorgeous, the styling is so beautiful and even though it is the base model, it looks awesome! It has a nice and roomy interior, my only complaint about it is that there is too much plastic inside, looks a little cheap, but other than that it is really nice inside, roomy and comfortable. The instrument panel is really easy to see and I love the 7' touch screen and apple carplay, a great feature! The base 2.4l engine has 185 horsepower, more than enough for around town driving and for merging on the highway. Gas mileage is good, not the best in class but it is very good. It has a huge trunk and you can fold the rear seats down for more storage. The car is comfortable and quiet on the road, visibility is also very good. It feels safe and secure on the road, handling is very good. It comes standard with blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert as well. Put all this together with America's best warranty and you have a well made, family sedan that should be on your list of midsize cars if you are shopping for one.

The best feature of the car is the trunk. It has amazing space.

2018 Hyundai Sonata

I love how smooth the car looks on the outside. It is casual and can be taken to many different events. It makes for a good spacious car but also is small enough to still feel sleek. The black detailing on the inside is very professional and gives a nice elegant finish to the car. When I drive this car I feel very empowered. It is always a smooth ride and the stereo is really great. The car is definitely reliable as I have not had any issues since having it for a couple of months. It gets me to where I need to go quickly and in style. I think it is a great unisex car. Either a male or female can feel comfortable driving it. I believe it has a perfect amount of storage and the backseat has plenty of room for the passengers legs. If I could improve this car so would say to maybe have more options for detailing and also possible heated seats. A remote starter for the winter time would be very nice as well.

Great looking... Great driving car.

2018 Hyundai Sonata Sport

I love the look of the car and the color I chose. The sonata drives very well and handles beautifully. The gas mileage is excellent...About 28 miles to the gallon in town and more on the highway. The driver's seat is very comfortable and gives very good lumbar support which is important to me. Overall, I like this car very much and would buy it again. The one thing that I would hope they will change in future models is where the ignition button is located on the dashboard. It is location is such that at times when I reach to adjust the air vents, I have inadvertently knocked it. At that point, the car basically turns itself off. Not good if you are traveling down the road. This has only happened to me once and thankfully I was at a stop light. Otherwise, this car is a winner!
