The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is a stylish and comfortable sedan that is a great fit for those Chicago drivers looking for a modern car to add to their household. There is a lot to love about this car, with plenty of outstanding facets that make it a good choice whether you're a professional looking for a tech-filled sedan or a parent wanting a safe and reliable vehicle to get your family from A to B. The following is a look at just two of the top aspects of the 2019 Hyundai Sonata that make it such a great buy:

Introducing the 2019 Hyundai Sonata: A Look at Power & Performance


The 2019 Hyundai Sonata comes standard this year with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that generates an ample 185 horsepower. This engine is paired with a smooth shifting six-speed automatic transmission and together they offer a punchy and satisfying amount of power. Additionally, with this engine drivers enjoy great fuel efficiency at an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. 

For those who want a bit more fuel efficiency, consider opting for the 2019 Sonata Eco outfitted with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that still gets plenty of power at a rating of 178-horsepower. More notably, however, is just how fuel efficient this engine and trim is. The transmission here gets an extra gear and together the powertrain delivers a class-leading fuel economy of 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. 

But what if you prefer power over the economy? Then you'll also be pleased with what the 2019 Hyundai Sonata lineup has in store for you. With the upper trims, like the 2019 Sonata Limited, there is an available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This is an energetic and lively engine that delivers an incredible 245 horsepower and gives the vehicle a really engaging feel. However, this engine, while big on power, is the least efficient of the model's available engines, but still nicely economic for today's standards with its earning an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.


Driving Performance and Handling

While which engine and transmission combination will change how the Sonata feels as it accelerates from red lights and up highway ramps, what stays the same across the 2019 Hyundai Sonata lineup is how composed this model feels behind the driver's wheel. This year's model saw a few significant changes including an update to its suspension that now soaks up road bumps and imperfections better than ever. It has a stellar chassis and remains composed and confident no matter how winding the road or how wet and ugly the road conditions. While this is no sports car, but rather a midsize sedan, it does offer an exciting and engaging driving experience sure to please. Furthermore, it boasts a small turning circle that makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces, such as rush hour in downtown Chicago and within tight parking lots in the suburbs of Chicago.
