The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is a serious contender among mid-size sedans with its significantly sportier physique. And where it really shines is in tech features. Remote parking assist allows you to stand outside of the vehicle and move it forward or backward using the key fob or Hyundai’s digital key, a phone app that acts as a key. Inside, obvious thought went behind keeping the Sonata uncluttered with easy to use features–buttons for gear-shifting, common-sense climate controls and a high-mounted touchscreen. Hyundai says it also designed the cabin with enough room for a 6-foot-tall passenger to fit comfortably behind a 6-foot-tall driver.
As many other automakers cut back on or drop sedans and coupes entirely from their line-ups, these major automotive brands are positioning themselves intentionally. While sedan buyers may be a narrower segment than truck and cross-over buyers, Toyota and Hyundai relish the fact that with fewer choices, car buyers will be driven to try new brands.
