2013 Hyundai Sonata

Excellent family sedan
Just bought this car 3 months ago and I love driving it. It is sporty and fun to drive. Love the bluetooth voice assistant. Great on gas, I get about 700 kms on a tank (city driving).

We we're thinking of buying a used (2011-2012) Sonata but the 0% financing sealed the deal. Plus, I think used cars have gone up in price and now is the best time to buy new. This is my family's 3rd Sonata and Hyundai keeps improving. Don't hesitate on buying this car.

2012 Hyundai Sonata

Trim: 2.0T

very quick and efficient car
It's a great car. Very quick, it has lots of power and is quite efficient. The rear pass through is a little too small though.

The interior is laid out well. I like that Hyundai went with the foot style e-brake to save room on the center console. On a tank of regular fuel, I get over 700kms of mixed city and highway driving. On my last trip I averaged 5.6L/100kms.

2009 Hyundai Sonata

Trim: GL

Drove close to 300k on the 2009 Sonata and it's still driving like new. Very reliable
My dad and I drive a cab in Toronto and I recommended he get a Hyundai Sonata instead of an Impala which was the most used fleet car a few years ago.

The Sonata is very reliable and has will save you a lot on gas. Since this car is on the road 24 hours a day, it currently has close to 300, 000 kms on it. We bought it used when it had 80,000 kms on it. This is the second Sonata within 3 years because the previous 2009 Sonata was involved in a car accident and was a write off. So my dad decided to get another 2009 Sonata. Even the previous car had over 250,000 kms before the accident. So it's not luck that we hit close to 300k twice.

What I like:
-Great acceleration for a 4 cylinder
-Great at gas. We still get about 600 kms on a single tank.
-Very reliable. No major repairs on both cars.
-Standard features like MP3 player, aux input, USB, etc...

What needs improvement:
-Wish the driver seat was more comfortable
-The side mirror should fold in
-The steering wheel feels a little numb and need refinement


Would I buy this car again? Yes, and I just did. I bought a 2013 Sonata as a family car. And all the improvements I mentioned above have been addressed in the new Sonata.
