Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata aims squarely for value-minded shoppers who want a long warranty, and hits a bullseye.

Pros
More stylish than before
Relaxing, comfortable ride quality
Flexible engines
Android or Apple, your interface is OK
Roomy interior

Cons
Light on personality

Limited customization options
Interior a little downmarket

Just about all of the midsize sedans these days are very good. As a shopper, it can be hard to choose. The 2019 Hyundai Sonata won't really wow you with dramatic styling or crazy amounts of horsepower, but it is a very competent sedan that ranks among the class leaders.

Pros
Solid list of standard features and tons of available tech
Spacious interior accommodations and generous trunk space
Excellent user interface receives a more upscale redesign
Generous warranty coverage

Cons
Lackluster power from base engine
Top turbocharged engine trails performance of its competitors
Slightly less rear legroom than the segment leaders
No options available on Edmunds' recommended Eco trim
