Model Highlights

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata comes in four basic trims, SE, Sport, Eco and Limited. All but the Eco are powered by a 185-horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder. This engine is mated to an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the front wheels, a combination that is good for up to 35 mpg on the highway. The Sonata Eco is powered by a 178-horsepower turbocharged 1.6L four, which is paired with a 7-speed EcoShift dual-clutch transmission. The result is mileage estimates of up to 38 mpg on the highway. For prospective buyers who want a bit more power, Hyundai offers a 245-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged engine as an option on the Sport and Limited trims.

The Sonata SE is the least expensive trim, but still includes heated side mirrors, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, projector beam headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio and cruise control interfaces, a 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment system, USB and auxiliary input jacks and a 6-speaker stereo.

The Sport and Eco trims include side mirror-mounted turn signals, leatherette interior appointments, automatic headlights and LED daytime running lights and an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat with heating for the front seats. They differ where the Sport offers 17-inch alloy wheels and a unique bumper and front grille, plus chrome and carbon fiber accents throughout the interior. If buyers elect to get the more powerful 2.0L engine with the Sport trim, they will also get 18-inch wheels, HID headlights, aluminum pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, leather seats, automatic climate control and vents for rear seat passengers.

The Limited trim really steps up the luxury content of the car. It comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome front grille, LED tail lights, rear window shades, a 6-way power adjustable passenger seat to complement the eight-way, power adjustable front seat for the driver, heated rear seats, leather seating, wood grain interior accents and an improved stereo that includes a subwoofer.

Part of the fun of the Sonata is that buyers can option the car up with features normally reserved for big luxury cars. Optional items on the Sonata include an 11-speaker Infinity premium sound system, an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system, a 4.2-inch color LCD trip computer display, HD radio, an electronic parking brake with vehicle hold, an intelligent cruise control system, a forward collision system, a heated steering wheel, vented and cooled front seats, a memory system for the drivers' seat and mirrors and HID xenon headlights.


Model News

The Hyundai Sonata was completely redesigned for 2015. For 2016, changes include a slightly revised suspension, which incorporates more lightweight aluminum components. A new 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment system incorporates Android Auto smartphone capabilities, with Apple CarPlay coming later in the model year, and is standard on all but the Limited 2.0T trim. The forward collision warning system of the Limited 2.0T now includes automatic emergency braking.


Value Writeup

The 2016 Sonata is a midsized sedan, placing it in direct competition with several of the best-selling cars in the country. Competing with the likes of the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord is no easy task, but Hyundai's typical strategy of packing a ton of value into its cars remains unchanged. The Sonata offers a lot of car for the money, undercutting its rivals in price, while simultaneously offering more interior volume and more upscale features. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata starts at $21,750.

Summary
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Sonata vehicles manufactured May 28, 2014, to August 21, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with an Antilock Braking System (ABS) warning light intended to warn the driver if there is an ABS malfunction. In the event of an ABS malfunction, the Brake System warning light will illuminate, but the ABS warning light will not illuminate. Since the vehicles have ABS malfunction lights that do not illuminate, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."

Consequence
If the driver is alerted there is a brake system malfunction, but not specifically with the ABS system, the driver may operate the vehicle unaware that the vehicle's brakes may lock up during hard braking, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will update the ABS control unit software, free of charge. The recall is expected began on November 30, 2015. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 134.

Due to a bonding issue with the sunroof wind deflector, the sunroof panel on the affected vehicles may detach while driving.

Consequence
If the sunroof detaches from the vehicle it could become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will repair the wind deflector anchor plate, free of charge. The recall began December 2016. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 152.

Summary
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain 2015-2016 Sonata and Genesis vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the warning light to indicate that the parking brake is applied may intermittently not illuminate in the dash due to corrosion in the switch.

Consequence
If the parking brake indicator is not illuminated when the parking brake is applied, the driver may operate the vehicle with the parking brake partially engaged, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the parking brake switch, free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2017. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 164.
