Minor Tweaks Keep an Old Dog Relevant


In 2008, Hyundai was ready to shake the stigma of being a “boring” automaker with competent products lacking noteworthy style or excitement.

The first step of this plan was the sixth generation Sonata – a car oozing with style and technology that looked like nothing else on the road. Furthermore, Hyundai made the ballsy move of ditching the V6 for this car, replacing it with a turbocharged four pot packing a serious wallop.

But that was over five years ago and things have changed. Most of the competition has since brought out stylish midsize offerings of their own and many have followed Hyundai’s lead by dropping the V6 engine option. The Sonata has now become the old dog of the segment and needs some new tricks to stay competitive before the seventh generation arrives in the next few years.

FAST FACTS
1. The 2.0 L turbocharged four-cylinder makes 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque.

2. Only transmission option is a six-speed automatic.

3. Fuel economy is officially rated at 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

4. Pricing starts at $22,145 after destination charges and our 2014 Limited 2.0T model came in at $32,445.
