The Blue Link system is also brand new for this year, making this one of the most entertaining small sedans on the market. The Sonata also has practical features such as automatic emergency contact notification, which informs loved one's if the car has been involved in a collision.

The 16" alloy wheels give the car an aggressive stance, while the rear lip spoiler and automatic headlights make it look more like a sports car. Interior features include full power accessories, air conditioning and cruise control. The available technology package adds a rear-view camera, HD radio, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and a USB port.
