2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport

*Disclaimer, I was compensated for the link in this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Looking for a spacious family car that gets up to 32mpg? The Hyundai Sonata Sport might be the right one for you. With class leading passenger and total interior space the Sonata is great for your family.

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport gets 23/32 mpg. Which is pretty great for a sport sedan. Go with a non sport option and you can get mileage as good as 28/38 for the Eco body style. All at a fantastic price. The Sport that I test drove starts at $28,575. The Eco starts at just $23,275. A great option for any budget. 

The Sonata has some wonderful features. It has a 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. 

The Sonata (Limited and Limited 2.0t ONLY) features Smart Cruise Control with stop/start. When it's active, it detects a vehicle in your lane ahead and automatically slows you down, maintaining a safe distance and will even come to a complete stop and start again with driver input. 

The dashboard is very basic, but still sleek looking and definitely gets the job done.
 Steering Wheel mounted controls make everything easy at just the touch of a button.

The Sonata features a touchscreen radio. AND They have introduced Android Auto. I wasn't able to test this cool feature since we're on the iOS system, but it is pretty awesome.

Android Auto features Google Voice control and is designed especially for your driving needs. It also works with your Sonata's buttons or touchscreen.  And the apps you want to use in your car have been made intuitive so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.

The rearview camera is really a feature that I will never live without. It is the most amazing feature in any vehicle and in my opinion, is a necessity. 
The rear row is very spacious and 3 people can very comfortably fit back there with no problem.
It also features 2 latch anchors and 3 top tether anchors for car seats. 
The leg room in the front row was exceptional. My husbands friend is 6'6" and fit here with no issues.
 Even the back leg room is very spacious. This is where the Sonata's interior space comes in. It's very roomy.
Center console features a lot of storage space
 Cupholders in the rear row pull down from the middle seat
The trunk space is truly impeccable
And if that weren't enough, just pull the button on each side of the trunk and it lowers the seats down to reveal even more space. 

With a heated steering wheel and heated seats you can definitely ride in warmth when it's cold outside. These are perfect here in MI for about 5-6 months out of the year. I love having these as options. 

The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), has made the Hyundai Sonata one of it's Top Picks for safety for 2015! So you can know that when you choose to buy a Sonata, you are choosing a safe vehicle for your family, and that, is priceless. 

It features Blind Spot Detection on the side view mirrors. As well as Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. 

Lane Departure warning means that if you go over the lines without your blinker on the vehicle will audibly and visually let you know. This helps keep drivers alert and keep the roads safer. 

Overall, the Hyundai Sonata Sport is a great vehicle to drive. It's perfect if you're single, or just married, and it's great if you have a family as well. It's plenty roomy and the trunk is huge for all your carrying needs. 

I would recommend the Sonata Sport to anyone

*Disclaimer, I received a Hyundai Sonata Sport for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle.

Looks and sounds awesome! In the future, we are going to need a new travel car, that gets decent mileage. This will definitely be on the list!
