The 2.5L Smartstream MPI engine provides excellent mid-range power for easy drivability. New Smartstream engines & gearbox delivers exceptionally enhanced driving performance and fuel economy.
Sonata dials it up with a choice of two new and improved powertrains mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Gear selection is controlled by a new shift-by-wire selector that makes for safer, more precise and fool-proof gear changes and its smaller footprint clears up valuable space on the center console. This same push-button convenience is brought to the electronic parking brake which comes with auto-hold that allows the driver to remove his foot from the brake pedal during stops to relax the leg muscles while maintaining brake pressure.
The highest convenience in the class is provided by new technologies related to advanced riding safety such as the Dual SRS Airbags.
