New Sonata Loaded with Affordable Features

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.
