Have you seen the 2020 Sonata? While Hyundai has elevated it’s offerings over the years, the 2020 Sonata represents a step beyond what the automaker has brought to market previously.
Other than sporting a new exterior, the 2020 Sonata is near-field communication (NFC)-enabled, allowing you to unlock the doors with your phone. I’ll also find a crazy amount of safety features: five cameras, three radar sensors, and 13 ultrasonic sensors, adaptive cruise, forward-collision braking, lane-following assist, and available rear-collision braking. Hyundai took a page out of Honda’s book with the addition of a blind-spot-camera mounted to the passenger-side mirror that displays a video in the digital gauge cluster that activates when the turn signal is engaged. When not checking out the blind-spot, the gauge can provide a 360-degree overhead view. Nice. There’s also a new safety feature that warns of a vehicle approaching from the rear when a door is opened.
Speaking of borrowing from other manufactures, you can park the Sonata via remote control. Originally found on the 2016 BMW 7 Series, the option lets you use the key fob as a remote control.
Other features include a 10.3-inch digital display, head-up display, Nappa leather seats, wireless phone charging, and illuminated chrome trim.
