The Sonata features Genesis-inspired styling with a bit less flourish; it’s contemporary, with powertrains to match. A 185-hp 2.4-liter with a six-speed automatic is standard; there is a 178-hp 1.6-liter Eco model with a seven-speed automatic as well as both a hybrid and plug-in hybrid, for those seeking fuel efficiency. A 245-hp turbo four with a six-speed automatic carves out the sporty end of the market. The suspension is supple, steering is pleasing. It’s a good car, with no excuses needed.
