2018 Hyundai Sonata in Michigan

2018 Hyundai Sonata Overview

Are you looking for a 2018 Hyundai Sonata in Michigan? If so, Glassman Hyundai is serving Michigan and wants to help you find a brand new Hyundai to drive home. In this 2018 Sonata review, we will give you an overview of the many changes that have been made to the Sonata and break down what's in the interior, on the exterior, mechanical features, the powertrain, and the Sonata's safety ratings and features. Overall, the 2018 Sonata is already a well-liked and highly-reviewed car that is making a splash among its competition in the mid-size sedan class this summer. Let's get into why you should contact a Michigan Hyundai dealership and ask to test-drive the 2018 Hyundai Sonata.

Interior

The first reason you should stop into your friendly Michigan Hyundai dealership and ask to test-drive the 2018 Sonata is that the interior has received some outstanding upgrades. All trims now come with a multi-functional three-spoke steering wheel, and some trims have a flat-bottomed unit. The black buttons on the center stack have been replaced with more attractive silver ones, although the stack's set-up remains fairly similar to that in the 2017 Sonata. The touchscreen is encased with silver trim now as well, as it matches nicely with the silver buttons on the center stack.

Exterior

The exterior has received an impeccable facelift, giving the 2018 Hyundai Sonata an aggressive edge over its competition. On the front fascia, there is a brand-new cascading grille. The 2.0T and Sport have a mesh design on the cascading grille. On the higher trim levels, the headlights have been reshaped to hold full LED lighting units. Gone are the circular fog lights on the lower part of the front fascia, and in their place are LED daytime light strips. In the rear, the tailights are wider and have a new LED light pattern. Hyundai has also moved the license plate down onto the rear bumper to make way for their H symbol on the trunk - a design change reflected in all of their 2018 models. Also, the 2.0T no longer has quad exhaust tips, and there are new 16-, 17-, and 18-inch tire designs.

Mechanical

Mechanical features on the 2018 Sonata include a totally revised chassis tuning which features a brand new torison bar in the steering system. This increases stiffness by 12% and makes the power steering feel far more responsive than it did on the previous models. Also, the rear suspension trailing links are now 21% stiffer, and there is far more control and riding compliance from the upgraded bushings.

Powertrain

The 2.0T now comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission, getting rid of the somewhat sluggish 6-speed on the 2017 2.0T. Other than this, the powertrains are virtually the same as the 2017 models, except for the Eco, which has a 7-speed automatic transmission. All other models have the 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard on all trim levels. The 2.4L direct inject engine comes standard on all models except for the Eco (which has a 1.6L) and 2.0T models (which have 2.0L engines). The 2.4L engines get 185 hp at 6000 rpm and 178 pounds-feet of torque.

Safety

Let's close out this 2018 Sonata review by discussing the car's safety features and ratings. Hyundai tries to go above and beyond to equip all of its vehicles with the latest upgrades and most effective safety technology. The 2018 model is no exception to this rule. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert now comes standard on all 2018 Sonata models, making the Sonata the only mid-sized sedan to offer this feature as standard across its entire line-up. Lane Keep Assist and the Lane Departure Warning are now bundled together into one cohesive system. Also included on the 2018 Sonatas are traction control, stability control, brake-force distribution, and ABS. If the 2018 is anything like the 2017 Sonata, it will receive solid marks on its crash safety tests and will quickly become a favorite among families and individuals looking for safety above everything else. We all know that Michigan winters can be tough, so keep the car's safety features in mind while you're searching for a 2018 Hyundai Sonata in Michigan ata dealership serving Michigan.
