2016 HYUNDAI SONATA: Hyundai new seventh-generation 2016 Sonata, classified as a large car, wears a more refined look through Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language that includes a larger grille with a wide air intake. A revised 185-hp 2.4-liter Theta II GDI four-cylinder engine powers SE, Limited and Sport models. The improved 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI, also featuring E-CVVT, powers Sport 2.0T models. The 2.0L turbocharged engine is also optimized for lower-RPM drivability and it pumps out 245-horsepower. Both Theta engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Sonata Eco is fitted with a 1.6L turbo four-cylinder mated with a seven-speed dual clutch. Sonata Hybrid's Nu engine produces 154-hp. The electric motor produces 38 kW (51 horsepower) for a net power of 193-hp. From the side, all wear a taut, horizontal beltline and rocker panels that stretched tight to accentuate the sedan's strength. The coupe-like roofline remains, balanced by a larger window graphic. Horizontal lines in the rear underscore Sonata's width and give the car a planted look. New for the 2016 Sonata is a stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise, vibration, and harshness. Hyundai continues its all-four-cylinder engine lineup for the 2016 Sonata. The '16 Sonata seats five in comfort and provides 16.3 cu. ft. of cargo room in the trunk. Hyundai's Blue Link is an innovative telematics solution that brings seamless connectivity for safety, car care, and infotainment capabilities and is offered on Sonata in three packages. Sonata Hybrids come standard with iPod/USB and auxiliary input jacks, SiriusXM satellite radio and Bluetooth phone connectivity with phonebook transfer and voice-recognition. Available upgrades include an 8.0-inch navigation system with downloadable apps, HD radio and Infinity premium audio system with next-generation Blue Link telematics.
