The 2013 Hyundai Sonata gets an updated navigation system and slight adjustments to the standard feature list, depending on the model. The biggest news may disappoint driving enthusiasts, however: Unlike last year, the 2013 Sonata is not offered with a manual transmission.
The 2013 Sonata comes in four models, including a hybrid that can be driven at highway speeds in full electric mode and an available turbocharged engine that is one of the most powerful in this class but still delivers excellent fuel mileage.
Sonata’s styling is busy for our taste and not as clean as its corporate sibling, the Kia Optima. Many other critics have praised Sonata’s look, however, and if it’s confused with any other sedan, it’s more likely to be mistaken for a Lexus or some other luxury model than for another mainstream mid-size.
Sonata GLS the standard trim, is powered by 198-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline four with direct fuel injection, though peak power decreases to 190 hp in California and several Northeastern states. The GLS is equipped with air conditioning, a full complement of power features, 60/40 split-folding rear seat and a six-speaker, 104-watt audio system with single CD and satellite radio.
