Class-leading cabin space in the '09 Sonata comfortably accommodates four adults, while a newly updated interior and long list of standard equipment add a touch of luxury at a price young families can afford.

 

Rome Pre-Owned Auto Sale Inc Review

 

The '09 Sonata should start to worry Honda and Toyota, as it continues to improve on its comfort and convenience features while maintaining a lower price tag. The higher-end interior should please single drivers, but Hyundai also keeps families in mind, offering a generously sized cabin and trunk and a top-notch safety profile.

 

The 2009 Sonata has gone through a major redesign, specifically to its cabin, suspension, and powertrains. Classified now in the large sedan category, the revamped Sonata easily competes with and sometimes surpasses rivals such as the Accord and Camry, offering more standard features and cabin room at a lower price.

 

Ride & Handling

The '09 Sonata handles like most mid- to large-size sedans, with a soft, floaty road feel and vague steering that offers little driver feedback. Owners appreciate its smooth and quiet ride, comparable to an Accord's, with several saying they find it hard to tell the difference between the two. Handling feels precise and solid, with less noise and vibration than previous models, thanks to a retuned double wishbone front and multilink rear suspension.

 

Cabin & Comfort

Owners and critics agree that the redesigned interior of the '09 Sonata brings it up to par with the higher-end and more expensive Accord and Camry. Its class-leading volume (121.7 cubic feet) and 72-inch-wide stance offer substantial head, shoulder, and legroom for both front and rear passengers, even those over 6 feet tall. Rear seats split-fold 60/40 onto a large 16.3-cubic-foot trunk, whose storage capacity impresses owners. Rear passengers get over 37 inches of legroom, and even with the front seats pushed back, one owner reports his knees never touch the back of the seat. Front passengers get nearly 44 inches of legroom.
