2018 Hyundai Sonata – Drive Review

The 5-passenger, front-wheel drive Sonata has been redesigned for 2018. It’s offered in a number of models with different powertrains—Sonata, Sonata 2.0T, Sonata Eco, Sonata Hybrid and Sonata Plug-in Hybrid. I recently drove the 2018 Sonata Limited powered by a 185-HP 2.4-L 4-cylinder.
