New Hyundai Sonata Named Among the Best Family Cars of 2015

Best Family Cars of 2015

The new 2015 Hyundai Sonata just keeps racking up the accolades. It won MotorWeek’s Midsize Sedan Challenge, was named Best Midsize Car of the Money by U.S. News & World Report, and recently earned a 2014 GOOD DESIGN Award. Now, it’s also just been called one of the Best Family Cars of 2015, according to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.

The publication looked at 23 of the “latest and greatest” vehicles from various manufacturers to determine those best suited to the family lifestyle, based on several categories—including comfort and driving, safety, child seats, cargo space, rear-seat entertainment, and more.

A great deal of the seventh-generation Sonata’s advantage over its competitors comes from Hyundai’s new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, which not only helps to make the car look more elegant than ever but also improves ride quality, by stiffening body structure and reducing noise, vibration, and harshness. You can test the ride for yourself at SouthTowne Hyundai!

And it’s going to keep getting more perks. Later this year, the Sonata will be equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to simultaneously increase safety and convenience.

New Sonata Hybrid Features Turbo Powertrain Option

A new version of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will be on the market soon, and here at Southtowne Hyundai, we like pretty much everything about it. It’s got an all-new design, which looks just as up-scale and luxurious as the new Genesis, pushing the Hyundai lineup even farther into the future and making it a truly luxury brand. Plus, it’s got some new advanced powertrain options as well.

You can get either a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower/177 lb-ft or an all-new turbo option, a 2.0-liter direct-injected turbo engine with 241 horsepower/258 lb-ft. Both models are matched up to a six-speed automatic transmission, and together, these versions of the Sonata Hybrid will make the model the most advanced and powerful option in its segment.

According to Hyundai itself, the new Sonata is “easily the best-built, most technologically-advanced and drivable Sonata yet.” Here at SouthTowne, we see no reason to disagree! Come in to learn more about the car’s all-new design, its sculpted and aerodynamic lines, new powertrain options, and much, much more!
