  • 2020 Hyundai Sonata, 2019 New York International Auto Show

    Wild speculation followed the debut of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata ahead of the 2019 New York International Auto Show, but it's true: a racier Sonata N-Line is in the pipeline. The South Korean automaker confirmed it will introduce a Sonata N-Line in 2020 with "over 275 horsepower," per Hyundai. The power figure is identical to the Veloster N, which features a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine. We've previously reported that the Sonata N-Line will feature a 2.5-liter turbo-4 engine. The confirmation of a Hyundai Sonata N-Line also leaves the door open for a proper Sonata N in the future. Hyundai is keen...

    2020 Hyundai Sonata ready to shine brightly

    The Hyundai Sonata received wide praise for its bold styling when it was redesigned for 2010. In 2016, that fanfare retreated when it received a rather conservative and buttoned-up look. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata lets its hair down once again and ushers in a dramatic new exterior design. Revealed...

Earlier this week the automaker released some teaser sketches and now the first shot of the car has surfaced by way of a leak on the Hyundai Blog website.

  • Hyundai Blue Link

    Hyundai takes its first steps into the buzzy field of in-car telematics with Blue Link, which bows later this year in the 2012 Sonata sedan and the new 2012 Veloster sport coupe. Blue Link uses the Web, human operators, and data hardware inside the car to fuse mapping and mobile services and enable them via voice commands. It's all controlled either by buttons on the rearview mirror, or by controls on the vehicle's steering wheel, or an LCD touchscreen for cars with navigation. During last week's New York Auto Show, we went for a ride up the West Side Highway in a Sonata sedan equipped with a...

  • 2011 Hyundai Sonata

    We like the 2011 Hyundai Sonata. Quite a lot, really--and that's before we even start talking about the 2.0T turbocharged model or the hybrid. But there's at least one person that doesn't like the Sonata--so much so that they've sold it back to Hyundai and vowed never to drive one again. Why? Because the steering wheel in her car is possessed, or appears to be. The demonic explanation probably isn't the right one, but Hyundai isn't sure what's going on either. As the video shows, the steering wheel goes off-center, and remains that way even after the car is shut off and restarted. The portion...
