Score: 6.9 / 10

The Sonata has been on sale in the US for more than 30 years, but finally it feels like Hyundai has perfected the formula. The latest Sonata is a standout in the mid-size sedan segment, earning high marks in its first review for design, tech, and safety. The only thing limiting this particular model – the SEL Plus – is the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. The optional engine only produces a modest 180 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.
