The 2018 Hyundai Sonata Review

The Hyundai Sonata has received an extensive refresh for its 2018 model including but not limited to a new e8-speed automatic, a new hood, narrower headlights and taillights, and new wheel designs. The current generation of Sonatas has established themselves as the most preferred midsize sedans in the United States, so these improvements have helped to fortify its position in the market.

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata Baltimore poses a significant challenge to its leading competitors- mainly the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The model is available in seven different trims which offer you more freedom when it comes to deciding what suits your needs. Here is a comprehensive review of the 2018 Hyundai Sonata.

What’s New?

The 2018 Sonata model has been extensively redesigned inside and out and receives greater updates to its steering and suspension aimed at improving the overall ride quality and response. All of the Hyundai models now come standard with blind-spot detection, lane change assist, and of course, the rear cross-traffic alert. Its headlights are now LED, and its sunroof has been sunk to normal in a move aimed at improving its fuel economy and weight savings.


The interior of the 2018 Hyundai Sonata, Baltimore has been updated, and it now offers a unique and exciting environment that you will enjoy. The controls remain easy to access, learn and use while its entry and exit are excellent while visibility remains one of its greatest features. It also features a 7-inch touchscreen that is easy to read while its redesigned center stack looks even better. There is also a lot of front headroom and sufficient elbow space. The roof also slopes in an excellent manner offering the tall passengers sufficient headroom. Almost everything in the 2018 Hyundai Sonata feels good. So far, the 2018 model is perhaps destined to be the best car ever-manufactured by Hyundai.


The Sonata also offers so much when it comes to technology. You have to remember the fact that Hyundai was the first auto manufacturer to offer Android AutoPlay and Apple CarPlay which comes standard with the 2018 Hyundai Sonata as well. Apart from the Android Auto and the Apple CarPlay, there is also a wide range of other technological features such as the adaptive cruise control and a wide range of smartphone-controlled functions.


The optional sports seats are still offered for the 2018 model. These sports seats are extremely comfortable, and their wide shape often suits most drivers. The cushions are located on the firm side, but this doesn’t affect its size in any way. The Sonata is a quiet car, and the engine sound is nonexistent even when you are cruising at high speeds. The ride quality is excellent, and you won’t experience fatigue even after long distances.
