The latest generation of Hyundai Sonata is one of the most baffling cars of all time! It is by far and away the most improved car ever made. When you compare it to the old model you realize the reason the new Sonata is so good is becasue it doesn’t share a single thing with its predecessor! And it comes from a company that even a few years ago was the one of the worst badges in business. Now though… things are very very different. The new Sonata is a magnificent car in every way. Kudos to Hyundai.
