Choosing a Hyundai for Retirees


Hyundai has built its reputation on affordability, reliability and safety, but it’s not just these traits that draw retirees to Hyundai’s lineup of vehicles. Retirees also like the large doors, easily read gauges and rearview cameras that Hyundai models often feature. If you’re of retirement age or know someone who is, consider choosing a Hyundai that has these traits.


The 2016 Sonata: Versatile Space and Easy Access

Many drivers, ranging from college age to retirement age, love the Hyundai Sonata because it offers lots of interior and trunk space. The midsize sedan seems larger on the inside than it looks on the outside, which is great for stowing dorm room items or golf clubs.

For retirees, however, the Hyundai Sonata’s spacious interior is especially inviting. It means that the front doors are larger than the doors of many other cars, and those doors are low to the ground. The result is a car that’s easy to get into and out of even if someone has slightly limited mobility.

While any Hyundai Sonata will serve retirees well, the 2016 Sonata presents a particularly good value. There are certified pre-owned 2016 Sonatas available that cost thousands less than new 2018 Sonatas do, and the certified pre-owned models still come with generous warranties. Furthermore, the model’s last major overhaul was in 2016, so there aren’t many differences between a 2016 and 2018 Sonata.


The 2018 Sonata Plug-In: Sonata Features with Plug-In Technology

The Sonata Plug-In is a natural choice for those who want the latest in environmentally friendly automotive technology. It comes with all of the benefits of the traditional Sonata -- a roomy interior and easy access -- while also providing plug-in capabilities that save fuel.

If choosing a Hyundai Sonata Plug-In, new models deserve special consideration. While certified pre-owned models may cost substantially less, all new 2018 Hyundai Sonata Plug-Ins come with a lifetime hybrid battery warranty that lasts as long as the original owner has the car. For retirees who might keep the same care a long time, a lifetime hybrid battery warranty has obvious advantages.


The 2018 Santa Fe: Supersized Room and Easy Maneuverability

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe takes interior room to the next level, offering three rows of seating that can accommodate up to seven people. The rear seats can be converted into an 80-cubic-foot cargo area when necessary, and the space is complemented by a 5,000-pound towing capacity. With these features, the 2018 Santa Fe is a natural choice for retirees who want to go places and bring all the grandkids.

As an added benefit, the 2018 Santa Fe is much easier to drive than full-size SUVs used to be. A rearview camera provides a visual when backing up, and front and rear parking sensors help manage tight parking spaces. When on the road, blind-spot monitors watch where the driver might not be able to see.
