Now with a dramatically new exterior design, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata delivers a long list of amenities, including an entire suite of available safety features in an affordable package. Starting at just $22,050, the midsize Sonata sedan will be arriving on the showroom floor at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale later this summer.

Cascading Grille Highlights Front Design

Start at the front of the vehicle and your eyes will be immediately drawn to the Hyundai’s cascading grille, a bold design element that accentuates the space between the sloping headlamps. A sculpted hood, fenders and side panels creates a muscular look that is sure to turn heads whether you’re racing down the street or stopped at the corner gas station. New alloy wheels are available in 16, 17 and 18-inch sizes, depending on the trim package and your personal taste. LED running lights, headlamps and tail lights are both for safety and illumination, adding the crowning touch to the exterior design.

Stiffer Suspension Improves Ride, Handling

Hyundai engineers sharpened their pencils and created a rear suspension system with much thicker trailing arms, giving the new Sonata the ability to handle heavy loads while reducing body roll through corners. New bushings both soften the ride and provide quicker response times, delivering a more dynamic driving experience. The steering torsion bar stiffness was tightened by 12 percent, improving responsiveness and giving drivers a better feel of the road.

Safety Features are Standard Equipment

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is the only popular mid-size sedan that offers Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard equipment. These two features utilize sensors and cameras to detect an obstacle and react to help you avoid a collision. The standard seven-inch color touchscreen not only serves as your window to the infotainment system, but is also the screen for your backup camera. When driving down the road, it converts to an easy-to use interface for all your audio, communication and navigation needs, if the vehicle is so equipped. If you choose the navigation option, you’ll receive real-time traffic conditions and map updates. A wireless charging station will keep your smartphones up to full level without the need for messy wires.

Seven Trim Packages Available

When the new 2018 Hyundai Sonata comes to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale this summer, you’ll have seven different trim packages from which to choose. The SE, SEL, Limited and Sport all come with the 2.4L GDI 4-cylinder engine that is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Eco model is powered by a 1.6L Turbo GDI with a 7-speed transmission. The Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T come with the 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder that is mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission.


When the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport arrives at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale in the very near future, you can expect to see a Value Package that delivers a boatload of features at a very attractive price. The new Value Package includes a proximity key with push-button start, power windows with auto up and down for the front and heated dual side mirrors that include turn signal indicators.

Seat Up to Seven in Maneuverable Size

The Hyundai Santa Fe proves you don’t need a vehicle the size of a city block to accommodate the entire family. The Santa Fe offers seating for up to seven people with your choice of front- or all-wheel drive. You also have a choice of an efficient 185 horsepower four-cylinder engine or more powerful turbo charged option. The three row Santa Fe for 2018 comes with a 3.3L Lambda II V6 engine that generates a whopping 290 horsepower. Each engine comes mated with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission that powers seamlessly through the gears, delivering the most performance in each power range.

Plenty of Standard Features

The Hyundai Santa Fe doesn’t skimp on standard features, offering a bevy of premium particulars that are more commonly found in more expensive vehicles. You’ll enjoy the safety and convenience offered by a rearview camera, automatic headlights and remote keyless entry. The body color power mirrors not only look great, but provide you with a driver’s blind spot mirror. LED headlight accents and daytime running lights make you stand out on the road while increasing visibility. The Bluetooth communication system is controlled by buttons on the steering wheel, allowing you to focus on the road. While all those features come at no charge, you can spend a little more to make your Hyundai Santa Fe special. Navigation, a panoramic sunroof, killer Logic7 audio system and hands-free lift gate are all reasonably priced options.

Safety an Important Consideration

While there are driver assistance systems that utilize cameras and radar available for an additional fee on the Hyundai Santa Fe, the standard safety features will help make sure you arrive at your destination unharmed. Vehicle Stability Management and Electronic Stability Control help keep you upright and on the highway when conditions get rough. Electronic Brake-force Distribution helps you bring your vehicle to a stop. In the event of an accident, seven well-placed airbags will help protect you and your passengers.
