The new Hyundai Sonata is all new for the year 2020! It is more tech savvy, better, and a lot nicer than the outgoing version.

These 4 things are some of the interesting things you will find in the newest version of Hyundai’s largest sedan.

1. You can move the car from outside

To make parking extremely easy, the Hyundai Sonata can be driven forward and backwards with a click of a fob button. This is great for parking in tight spots, or into your garage!

While this is something that has been out for a while, more specifically with BMW, adding this into a mid-market sedan means we will likely see this feature in a lot of other vehicles.

2. There are blind spot cameras in the dash

This is a semi common feature in quite a few vehicles, however most of them are in the Kia and Hyundai family.

Basically when you turn on the turn signal, the camera shows up in either the left or right side of the dash showing exactly what is in your blind spot.

I guess that means newer cars may not need these any longer?

3. The more expensive engine has less power

As of this writing, there are only two engines, the base 2.5 engine has 191 hp and the more expensive 1.6 liter turbo is only 180 horsepower.

Strangely enough, the more expensive engine also gets a lower gas mileage…

I think I would probably go for the naturally aspirated 2.5 liter.

4. The gauges in the Sonata are completely digital

Yes, that is right! More cars are moving to a completely digital dash nowadays, and the Sonata is no different. Thankfully this makes it much more customizable. 

However I do worry that in 20 years they will begin to look like an old 300zx due to age.


Hyundai has been doing an awesome job lately, and is creating some of the best sedans, SUVs, and more in their class.

They would definitely be worth looking at if you are in the market for a Sedan, and want quality, but not the price.
