The Hyundai Sonata has always been considered one of the best midsize sedan out there and consumers were happy to learn that the vehicle was going to get a refresh last year but according to Consumers Report, you might want to avoid the refresh model for now.
The 2018 Hyundai Sonata was launched last year an according to Consumers Report, it was immediately obvious that the vehicle was not as good as the previous model. CR pointed out that the ride quality of the Hyundai Sonata is not as good as the previous model.
In fact, it is far from what their competitors are offering right now. It is believed that Hyundai choose to improve the handling and braking of the Sonata which is great but the ride quality was compromised.
The 2018 model will be coming in with a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine that will be offering about 185hp. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. There is also a 2.0-liter engine option.
