Inside the 2018 Hyundai Sonata & Elantra GT

Hyundai 2018 Sonata

Last Fall, I had the opportunity to test drive the new 2018 Sonata and 2018 Elantra GT.  These two cars are so beautifullly and thoughtfully designed, and absolultely loaded with features.  And both cars come in a series of bold and neutral colors, like Electric Blue, Machine Grey, Scarlet Red and a gorgeous Quartz White Pearl.

The NEW 2018 Hyundai Sonata has an incredibly smooth ride and is spacious enough for a family of four with plenty of extra room for bulky car seats.

Another great feature of the 2018 Sonata is the addition of Hyundai’s Blue Link service.  All of Blue Link’s remote features are web based, which means you can program your navigation, start your car, set climate control and more…all before you even enter your vehicle.  Want to cool your car down when you get out of work?  How about starting up grandma’s car before she heads out for groceries?  Or monitoring your kids while they’re out with friends?  You can do it all.

You also get a ton more safety features, like Geo-Fence, Curfew and Speed Alerts, perfect for families with new teen drivers.  And best of all, both cars are very affordable.

Hyundai 2018 Elantra GT

The new 2018 Elantra GT is super sleek.  It comes will several high end up grades at it’s base price, meaning you’ll get more bang for your buck.  Inside and out, it’s clear that a lot of time and attention was spent on design.  This little car is still plenty roomy and easily the most fun to drive.

Luxury and Comfort

The Summit Grey finish feels high end and sophisticated.  The perfect color for people who love a sporty car, but want that sleek, polished look that says “upscale.”

And the Elantra GT feels every bit as luxurious as it looks.  This year, leather interior is standard and the dash and interfaces have been streamlined to create a comfortable, spacious ride for the driver and passengers.  Plenty of foot room and adjustable steering and seats make this car super comfortable for anyone.  I’ve always loved the Elantra for it’s ability to accommodate plus size passengers and the 2018 Elantra doesn’t disappoint.  It’s by far the most comfortable ride I’ve ever had in a compact car or sedan.

The 2018 Elantra GT handles great in various weather conditions and has smooth steering creating an incredible ride.  Unlike bulky SUVs, the Elantra GT moves with you, making for a better overall driving experience.  Smaller blind spots means you’ll feel more in control when you drive.  Hyundai’s put a lot of time into making sure that your driving experience feels intuitive, and it shows.
