It would be easy to write the 2019 Hyundai Sonata off as all-style and no substance, but surely we’ve all been warned not to judge a book by its cover. Despite its undeniable curb appeal, the 2019 Sonata is so much more than a sublimely styled sedan, a fact proven by its speedy performance, smart technology, and surplus of safety features. Starting at only $24,899, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata is proof that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive.

Much like the Sonata melds sharp looks with smart functionality, its performance blends power and efficiency for a sedan that’s both fun to drive and practical. Starting with a 2.4-litre Gasoline Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine, the base Sonata trim offers 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque to take you on your merry way. Thanks to a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® manual mode, the Sonata provides a smooth drive with the option of greater control. While the standard engine provides an impeccable driving experience, the available turbocharged 2.0-litre GDI 4-cylinder takes the 2019 Sonata in a bold direction—and it takes it there significantly faster thanks to its 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission offers even greater efficiency, while the D-cut leather-wrapped steering wheel comes complete with paddle shifters for a truly immersive driving experience. Upgrade the Sonata Essential with the Sport Package, or dive right into the 2.0T Ultimate model, and you’ll encounter responsive sport-tuned suspension and steering guiding while driving on specially-designed 18” alloy wheels.
The 2019 Sonata could rest on the merits of its beautiful exterior and powerful performance, but that just isn’t the Hyundai way. Comfort and class combine in this luxurious sedan, featuring standard heated front seats to help you battle the colder months (as well as available heated rear seats for your passengers). An available heated steering wheel is another seemingly small detail, yet one that provides an intensely enjoyable experience. A standard 7” touchscreen with Bluetooth® capabilities lets you make hands-free calls, while also offering a rearview camera for parking ease, while the upgraded 8” touchscreen with built-in navigation ups the luxury in the already opulent sedan. Add in the 2019 Sonata’s proximity key and push-button ignition, and you’ve got a sedan whose small price tag belies its impressive capabilities.
Of course, despite its potent performance and luxurious interior, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata’s exterior is where it really shines. A sporty front fascia leads the Sonata forward, greeting you with a wide, bold grille flanked by the available LED headlights featuring an Adaptive Cornering System. Stylish LED taillights might be an option, but an option well worth taking nonetheless. Standard 16” alloy wheels complement the Sonata’s already distinct profile, though the available 17” and 18” wheels are sure to receive plenty of compliments, should you go that route. Standard LED side repeaters highlight the incredibly stylish-yet-functional body-coloured, power-adjustable, heated side mirrors. Lastly, the available hands-free smart trunk will sense your proximity key and open automatically, punctuating the Sonata’s effortless style.
Marrying beauty with beastly performance, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata is well worth its low starting price of $24,899. Of course, singing the praises of the Sonata’s efficiency and style is still short-selling this impressive sedan; which, when equipped with the available Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and LED headlights, finds itself as one of the 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick + vehicles, a further testament to all it brings to the table.
