The reviews of the Hyundai Sonata are generally positive, noting its good value for price. US News and World Report ranks it sixth in affordable mid-sized cars.
US News and World Report liked the interior, which they deemed upscale and comfortable. The Car Connection found it had a large amount of small storage compartments. Both reviewers extolled the quiet cabin when driving. For the hybrid version, Car and Driver was positive about the car but didn't like the lack of spare tire, the brake fade and the battery losing energy fast when driven at above average speeds. The reviewer liked the 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain/hybrid-component warranty for the hybrid.
