My Week in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco

Monday, March 23, 2015

I was provided a vehicle for 1 week in exchange for my honest opinion. Read my Disclosure Policy. 

So last week I got to drive the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco.  It's a fantastic car! This Venetian Red beauty has a 1.6L Turbo Gasoline Direct Injection 4-Cylinder Engine with 178 horsepower and a 7-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission.  

Inside it's SUPER roomy and has such comfortable seating not only for the driver but all passengers.  I love the blind spot alert and I absolutely love the sound system and the 5-inch color touch screen.
There's so much room to store things in the various cup holders and storage cubbies that keep everything all within reach.  I have to say one of my biggest pet peeves is when I go around a bend and all of my stuff falls out of the holders but that doesn't happen in this car.  I can't imagine having kids in the back and trying to get somewhere with all the chaos of things falling around so that's why I really loved that small detail of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco. 

There is such a sleek and sporty look to this car.  I love everything about it!   It did a great job handling turns on rough roads and it also did great in the city with all the stop and go.  
The headlights made it so easy to see at night and in crappy rainy conditions.  I also love the safety features like a rearview camera (works wonders when parallel parking), ABS, Impact Reducing Front Seats, Traction Control and Vehicle Stability Management, and like I said earlier the Blind Spot detection.
The little luxuries like the proximity key entry system, push button start, heated front seats, and the auto dimming rearview mirror make everyday that much easier.   I really love not having to worry about where my key is, as longa s it's with me I can get in the car and start it.  I love the trunk, it fits an insane amount of stuff. I put 8 trash bags of clothes in there to donate!!!  

This car had such a quiet ride.  Even on horribly torn up city streets I barely felt the bumps and I had such a quiet and relaxing commute to and from work.  It feels like you are in your own little private bubble.

You can even hook up with Blue Link and search using your voice to find a location you wish to go and the navigation will take over.  Also, I loved the voice text messaging.  This is a GREAT safety feature and a major convenience!   You can select a friend all with your voice and then the system dictates your text message back to you before sending.  I also love that I can share my location with friends and see where they are!   And of course Roadside Assistance gives you an insane amount of reassurance when you are in a bad situation.  

I love this vehicle.  This specific one costs $28,310.00 which is pretty good for everything you get.
