2013 Hyundai Sonata
2013 Hyundai Sonata

New For 2013

The two-pane panoramic sunroof is now available only on Limited models, which now get a traditional smaller sunroof as standard equipment. Also, heated seats are now standard on all Sonatas except for the base GLS.

Overview

The Sonata is the most important car in Hyundai’s lineup, so the company has a lot riding on the model, which was completely redesigned for 2011. Like all the Korean carmaker’s recently launched models, the Sonata is truly a world-class effort that helps wipe away any memories of the heinous Hyundais of a couple decades ago. The mid-size Sonata is at or near the top of its class in a broad range of categories—some you might expect (low price, fuel economy) and some you might not (power, torque, interior space, driving dynamics). The volume engine is a 198-hp, 2.4-liter direct-injected four-cylinder (200 hp in the SE model, which has dual exhausts). Instead of an optional six-cylinder, the Sonata’s more potent engine is a 274-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Filling out the lineup is the 206-hp Hybrid model, which costs about $6000 more and sports a strangely aquatic face. It boasts fuel-economy ratings of 35/40 mpg city/highway and bangs heads with the Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The styling of the Sonata is a big step up from that of its predecessor, with nice proportions and an elegant arc that sweeps from front to rear, although the distorted-looking grille can take some getting used to. Add in a low price, and the Sonata is one of the stronger contenders in its hypercompetitive class.

Safety

Front, front side, and side curtain air bags; active front head restraints; ABS; traction and stability control; the Blue Link telematics system; electronic brake-force distribution; and tire-pressure monitors are standard on all Sonatas.

2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Exterior Driving
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid went through some major changes for the 2013 model year, largely aimed at improving the hybrid’s fuel efficiency rating after it was downgraded in light of Hyundai’s MPG inflation fiasco. For the 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, just a few minor additions to the list of standard equipment will engender a modest $350 price increase. The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid starts at $26,810 including destination fees.
2015 Hyundai Sonata Spied Front Three Quarters 2
The 2015 Hyundai Sonata shed even more of its disguise in these latest spy shots of the car around the Nurburgring racetrack in Germany. The new shots show that the mid-size sedan’s 2015 update will be more evolutionary than revolutionary, although it will advance from Hyundai's current "fluidic sculpture" design language to the more mature "fluidic precision" styling.

Hyundai is getting ready to pull the wraps off of the 2015 Sonata, and, thanks to our spy shooter, we now have a better idea on how the revised midsize sedan will look.
Hyundai Mistra Front Three Quarter
What you're looking at is not, in fact, a next-generation Sonata or Azera. Instead, it's Hyundai's new Mistra, a mid-size sedan that will be exclusive to the Chinese market.

POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Sonata vehicles manufactured December 11, 2009, through May 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may detach from from the shift lever pin.
Consequences
If the transmission shift cable detaches, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Furthermore, when the driver parks the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position and the parking brake is not applied, there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Remedy
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, repair the connection between the shift cable and shift lever, free of charge. The recall began in September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 123.

Summary
Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Hyundai Sonata passenger cars, manufactured from January 24, 2012, through June 21, 2012. The curtain side airbags on these vehicles may inflate without deployment command due to an error during manufacturing.
Consequences
The curtain airbag may inflate without deployment command and increase the risk of injury to occupants of the vehicle. Additionally, an unexpected deployment would be a significant driver distraction and would limit the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Hyundai dealers will notify owners, and dealers will replace the curtain side airbags free of charge. This recall began on August 31, 2012. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151.
