The 2016 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T is absolutely perfect for anyone wanting a sports car that is FAST and still gets great gas mileage and at a reasonable price (under $30k). I loved the Sonata I recently had for a week. It was an absolute blast to drive and I didn't want to give it back.
The 2016 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T gets 23/32 mpg. With an average of 26. Which is fantastic for a sports car. All at a fantastic price. The model that I test drove starts at $28,925. The basic Sonata starts at just $21,750 though. A very affordable option.
The Sonata has some wonderful features. It has the Proximity Key entry (optional on the Sport and standard on limited on up models). Side Mirror Mounted Turn Signal Indicators. And a push start of course! 8 Way Power Driver Seat with Lumbar Support is standard on most models. Also features the Hands Free Smart Trunk. When the proximity key is within 3 feet of the trunk for more than three seconds, the trunk automatically opens. An awesome feature when your hands are full. 8 Way Power Driver Seat with Lumbar Support is standard on most models (sport on up) and a 6 way passenger seat.
I really liked the look of the Sonata, it was simple with not too many things to get confused about, but was sleek and nice in design.
I was blown away by the legroom in the rear row. I'm 5'6" so pretty average, but look at that legroom!!!!
Lots of trunk space as well with the seat folded up AND folded down!
Did I also mention this car 0-60's in just 7 seconds?? No? Well it does! The first couple seconds of this video was me prepping for the light to turn green!
The Hyundai Sonata is their mid level sedan, so the features are right down the middle. You can get more options with the Limited 2.0T, but you can get even less with the SE through Limited.
Some of the safety features of the Sonata are a Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, it shows up right on the mirrors. Lane Departure Warning, Automatic High Beam Assist which automatically switching from high beam to low beams when a vehicle is detected. Rear Parking Sensors, Driver's Knee Airbag and an Electronic Parking Brake. Just push the button to activate.
Overall the Sonata Sport was a fun drive. It was mid size and comfortable, lots of space in trunk, affordable, great gas mileage and it had just enough fun features to keep me entertained and happy!
I would definitely recommend the Sonata for anybody looking to get a new vehicle that is affordable.
