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.

- Andrew C

the back up and camera and blind spot detection features.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I have not had any problems with my car. The gas mileage is great and the features it included is amazing. I only have to fill up my tank about once a week. I have two small kids so I have two car seats and they fit perfectly with room for another person in the middle. The trunk is big and spacious and I can fit my double stroller along with toys and other things we need for the day. It comes with the backup camera and Bluetooth capability. I highly would recommend my car to anyone who is in the market.

- Lindsey R

Reliable and wallet friendly

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

The performance of the vehicle is very nice, the 3 modes eco, sport, and comfort, work and change very well. The only issue I ever have with the car is the tire pressure sensor came on and hasn't gone off even after putting air in the tires, and sometimes the Bluetooth connection makes a really weird sound while playing music and is very annoying. But if you connect through the USB apple play I haven't had a problem with it. Overall very nice reliable car. Gas mileage is amazing

- Ashley A

Honest Hyundai Sonata Review

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

The performance so far has been top notch. I'm near 30,000 miles with no problems thus far. The only small problems I have encountered has been cosmetic. The volume buttons on the steering wheel no longer work, and the same goes with the skip button. Other than those couple of problems the car is great. Hyundai is a great company, and I will continue to buy cars from them. I'm hoping to get the Genesis next! One of the hottest cars on the market!

- Benjamin S

Great car with great legroom for driver, passenger and back seaters.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

This car is roomy and works for tall people as far as leg room, great trunk space, all around comfortable car. It has normal, eco, and sports , it's fast and stylish, a great car for traveling. The car drives really smooth, great interior, a lot of cup holders, a great radio system it can get really loud. It's a touch screen it has Apple play, Bluetooth, aux, CD player. All around a great car

- Dyani S

Awesome vehicle with a lot of perks..

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I really don't have any bad words for my Hyundai, I love the way it drive and the performance of the overall vehicle. The inside is real stylish and sporty, the multimedia system top of the line with android auto and apple carplay with the navigation, the spill resistant seats that I have is excellent and the sporty look of the whole car is awesome, it's a great buy for the price.

- Shawn A

Small, reliable, comfortable, cute,

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I love everything about my car. It's the right size and comfort space for my small family. I was looking for a vehicle with certain features and it has the features I wanted: back up camera, navigation, as well as additional features I've never had: heated seats, and push start. The app let's me know about the maintenance of the vehicle and it is top of the line.

- Leslie M

Have no complaints, would recommend

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I have had this car for a year now and I have had no complaints. The gas mileage is good and when I have brought it into Hyundai for check ups the service has been smooth. The back up camera and lane warning indicator have been great help coming from cars that didn't have them. Plus the Hyundai Dealership gives a great warranty and two free oil changes.

- Daniel D

Remote start helps a lot in Chicagoland weather.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Interior is very comfortable, surprising amount of room. Shifting gears can be tricky as well as figuring out cruise control. Easy to handle while driving. Strange vibration I can't seem to get taken care of, has been a bother but not worried for my safety. Reliable car. Warms up and cools off quickly. Good mileage.

- Mystic B

My car is pretty easy to clean.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I feel safe in my car one reason is the blind spot signal and it will let you know if a car is in your blind spot and also because there's a backup cam. I also like my car because it's very smooth and easy to drive. This is car is very simple to use. It also is pretty spacious in the back being that it's not an SUV

- rebecca B

Hyundai sonatas will never give you a problem.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

My Hyundai sonata is extremely comfortable and very reliable. I have no problems with my car and I feel as if it is very safe too! I do not know what I would do without my Hyundai! Not once have I experienced a problem with my car I feel as if my car has always got my back! I a hundred percent recommend this car.

- henny N

Impressive with one little problem.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Love the techie things. Blind spot monitor, rear view camera with motion sensing. The only problem we have is the height on the driver side seat. I'm 5'10' and have the seat is high as it goes for good viewing out the windshield. My partner is 10' shorter, so she has to sit on a pillow when she drives.

- Richard F

Best first car I could've asked for

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

My car is a new model but does not have all the high tech features, such a push to start and electrical seat adjustments. I enjoy the CarPlay mode for my phone because it allows me to use my phone's GPS. The cruise control is one of my favorite features that I use very often. Driving is comfortable.

- Kiara M

Fuel efficient and very fun to drive. Easy to get in and out of tight spaces.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Car performs good. Comfortable to take on long trips. Excellent fuel economy. Drive mode allows for three different driving experiences. One problem this car has is a pre-ignition problem at low speeds. This seems to be a problem with GDI engines as I have another vehicle that does the same thing.

- Ryan A

2018 Hyundai sonata se overall excellent value.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Economical, good value, roomy, good fuel economy, excellent trunk space, stylish, safe, tech savvy, fun to drive, reliable, comfortable, good performance, but could use a little more get up and go, ours is a gray se with black interior. Overall we are very satisfied with our decision.

- Casey S

I love my Hyundai sonata, great gas mileage, high level of comfort.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

My car is very comfortable, has great gas mileage, big enough to fit my family yet not a huge car, nice trunk space for all of my groceries, have not had any engine trouble, the radio and sound system is great, the interior design is good I like the colors I absolutely love this car.

- Tiffany H

Low consumption, good value for money

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Feels like there is not enough horsepower. Comfortable inside, very nice interior and exterior. Generally, I like this car because it has low fuel consumption. It feels very safe in the event of impact and I also enjoy the fact that it feels much more expensive that it actually is.

- Andy R

Lots of safety features and love the in dashboard tablet.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Great gas mileage. Roomy easy to handle. Miss the option of heated seats. Love the new safety features with lane change alert and the back up camera. Use the GPS a lot too. The red color car only comes with the light interior. Wish it came with the option for darker grey or black.

- Pamela C

Huge trunk space! Extremely family friendly

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I love my sonata! It's comfortable and rides smooth! I had a Lexus before this car and this one rides just as smooth. The ac is freezing cold and I love that. The screen and dash is big and so fancy looking. The trunk space is amazing and can fit a double stroller and groceries

- Veronica Y

Red, fast, smooth ride, comfortable, affordable.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Only problem is instead of adding certain fluids yourself you have to get it professionally done oh and the horn is funny sounding. That's it! It's beyond comfortable, roomy, stylish, speakers are nice, sports mode helps take curves in the mountains, slap shift good for racing.

- Erika J

Hyundai Sonata is a decent car

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

It's a comfortable ride, has good gas mileage, and a good amount of room. The only thing I do not like is the fabric seats stain with just water. I find that odd. So I use blankets on the seats to protect them. The trunk is on the small side but overall it is a decent car.

- Amy L

Classy Style and wonderfully priced

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

The acceleration is sluggish in comparison to our other 2018 Hyundai Sonata. The drivers side parking light went out within the first year. Front passenger seat is not very comfortable, especially on longer drives. Overall, the 2018 Sonata is a great value and is stylish.

- Elisha A

Smooth ride and comfortable

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

I have not had any problems. The car rides really smooth and the gear transitions are amazing. The back camera is good for when in reverse as an extra way to view what's behind me. The air conditioning is awesome. The seats are comfortable. The inside is spacious.

- Dominique G

Blind spot camera lights. Love them.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

The performance of my vehicle is excellent it is a strong smooth car I feel safe keeping my family in that car then my last car. The vehicle is very fast and I love it is back up camera really comes in handy when backing out from a tight space or even at night.

- Amanda P

2018 Hyundai Sonata, the driver's friend

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

It's very comfortable to drive. The entire design of the car seems geared towards the driver. The console tilts towards the driver. It feels like the car floats. I haven't had any mechanical issues with the car. It accelerates nicely. It's pretty good on gas.

- Stephanie M

Good for kids esp with car seats.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

Car is very smooth and quiet. Do not like the sound of the blinker, and wish I had wipers on the back window. Lots of foot room, good for car seats. Would like there to be vents in the back. Would like cameras to go all around the car. Great sound system.


Sensor powered great notice.

2018 Hyundai Sonata SE

None other than recall on computer program in engine. Will cut off automatic driving down the road. Makes a funny sound when first starting the car. Has uncomfortable seats and not enough room. Radio Bluetooth is very touchy. Music stops in reverse. None.
