Why the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Matters:
The previous generation Hyundai Sonata sounded a wake-up call that Korea was serious about stealing market share in the mid-size sedan segment. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata takes that seriousness one step further with a design that’s not quite as pretty as it used to be, adopting harder lines and a host of new technologies as the next stage in the vehicle’s evolution. That’s not to say that this is an ugly car – it’s just moved in a new direction that places it more in-step with some of its rivals, trading some individuality for an image of strength and sport. Think of it as a move to consolidate the brand’s hard-won customer base.
