Driving off the Hyundai production line and cruising through the Alabama country side in the new 2015 Hyundai Sonata was an experience of a lifetime. Feeling how the car handled the curves, the sense of safety as the contoured seats hugged you and knowing that Hyundai is a company who puts employees first I was truly honored. The New Sonata is not just an ordinary Mom mobile it is a classy, sophisticated car that your husband will be begging to borrow.
Hyundai a company who has been around since 1985 providing families with cars and winning awards. A couple of the awards include Lowest 5 Year Cost to Own in its class by Kelley Blue Book’s by KBB.com in 2014 for the Veloster Turbo and Consumer Reports Top Pick also in 2014 for the Santa Fe. They’re also providing jobs to thousands of employees throughout the United States.

They work every day to make employees jobs ergonomically safe and provide them with many healthy opportunities in the workplace like a walking track and fitness room at the factory. Producing 398,000 units in 2013 with innovations like robots the employees jobs are made easier while maintaining a high standard.

- Forward collision warning so you won’t be caught off guard and have time to react

Hyundai New Sonata Interior
The interior with my favorite feature being the moon roof, navigation and cooling seat also includes:
- Class-leading passenger volume and total interior volume
- Best-in-Class front headroom and legroom
- Only model among competitors to be classified as a Large Car by the EPA
The experience doesn’t end there Hyundai went above and beyond with the New Sonata and provided user selected drive modes:
- Efficient – ECO
- Well balanced – Normal
- Dynamic – Sport
Each mode provides a little different handling and acceleration but they all provide a remarkable smooth drive that allows you to enjoy the drive and not worry about the road noise. The Hyundai Sonata makes driving simple again.
Starting at MSRP $21,150 you’ll want to get behind the steering wheel and take the New Sonata for a spin!
