What's New in the 2019 Hyundai Sonata?

After a few noteworthy mid-year enhancements in 2018, more features than ever have become available for 2019 in the latest mid-size sedan, for the same exceptional value, and often for less. Take a look under the hood and in-cabin with us here at Wayne Hyundai, and you'll see what your fellow northern New Jersey drivers are already falling in love with.

For instance, the new Hyundai Sonata still has its hallmark go-getter drive thanks to three engine choices, a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder, a 178-horsepower, 1.6-liter inline-four with twin-scroll turbocharging, and a high-performance twin-scroll turbocharged 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter I4. Depending on your selection, you can find a six- or eight-speed automatic transmission, each with drive-adaptive SHIFTRONIC tech, or, if you'd like to avoid a clutch and get rid of the feeling of a torque converter during shifts, an available seven-speed EcoShift DCT.

2019 Sonata is also great with gas. Count on up to 28 mpg in cities, 37 mpg down highways, and 31 mpg combined in select trims, by EPA estimates. In short, there's a powertrain for everyone, from those with an eye on mileage to drivers with an inner racing enthusiast.

Safety comes standard, too, the result of seven generations of Hyundai craftsmanship excellence and counting. That is to say that Blind-Spot Detection, Rear Cross-traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, and a rearview camera come along for the ride, expanding your situational awareness, and that options abound. They range from automatic emergency brakes with pedestrian detection and warnings for lane departure to lane keep assist and smart cruise control with start/stop and more. Bring available auto high-beam assist, dynamic bending light for peering around corners, and even a rear sensor system for parking into the mix, and you'll see that protection is wraparound.

Likewise, Sonata is exceptionally roomy and even more comfortable. Under an available power tilt-and-slide sunroof, with a panoramic option in higher trims, 106.1 cubic feet of passenger space sprawls, home to seating available in premium cloth, in cloth with sport leather bolsters, in full leather, or in sport leather -- the lap of luxury. Heating and ventilation are available up front, too, and dual automatic temperature control is available, making the car prepared for any weather eventuality. Plus, 60/40 split rear seating folds to expand the otherwise spacious 16.3-cubic-foot trunk, ensuring plenty of room for everything from work-week supplies to vacation luggage.

Finally, it's expertly equipped, nay tech-savvy. There's a large 7-inch display audio infotainment touchscreen in lower trims to put entertainment and connectivity at your fingertips, and it becomes a larger 8-inch variant in those higher, navigation-equipped to make the point-A-to-B a matter of course. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard in every Sonata, too, letting you access your smartphone's apps and features from the dash display, and Qi wireless device charging is optional to keep it energized and ready for the ride. Looking to make that mix you've been saving the anthem of your road trip? There's a 400-watt, 10-speaker Infinity premium audio system available ready to step in and deliver.

There's more in the way of exciting to the new 2019 Hyundai Sonata, right here on 1935 Route 23 South in Wayne, NJ. Ready to step into the driver's seat to see for yourself? Stop by and visit us today!
