I just bought a new Hyundai Sonata. The interior and exterior of the car is awesome. The staff at the dealership helped answer any questions that I had. Thanks Billie!

The Sonate Eco is a great car

I research for a couple of years before buying a car. My last two cars were a 2006 VW Passat 2.0T and 2014 Mazda 6 bought in April 2013. I just bought a 2017 Eco and it's the best car of the three. I have just over 1000 miles on it and am extremely pleased with the performance, build quality and value. I test drove about a dozen different sedans and SUV's, but had a chance to drive a 2016 base model Sonata as a rental for a week, and liked the driving feel and the features. What I didn't like is that it was a bit slow off the line, about average for large sedans. The Eco model cured that problem, though it is hard to find. It's one step up from a base model, but since the car hasn't caught on much, you can still get good deals on it. I got mine at about the same cost as a base model, with some extra features, especially a set of Michelin tires that ride great. The Eco has 1.6 liter liter engine with a twin-scroll turbo that makes 179 HP and 195 ft-lbs of torque. The HP is actually a little less than the base model, but the torque is higher, and it comes with a wide maximum torque band starting at 1500 RPM. The ECO also has a twin-clutch transmission. For those who aren't familiar, it's basically a computer-controlled manual transmission that operates faster than a standard automatic, though it's not as smooth. The smaller engine and transmission drop the curb weight for an ECO from 3587 for a base model to 3219. The combination of a smaller high-torque engine, fast-transmission and lower weight cuts a half-second or better off the the zero-to-60 time. There's a tiny bit of turbo lag as you come off the line, but as soon as you hit 1500 RPM you feel the torque kick in and it moves very nicely after that. At highway speeds, it passes quickly and effortlessly. You really don't notice the difference in the transmission at higher speeds, though it can be slighly bumpy at very low speeds, particularly on the downshifts. Still, I'll take the faster acceleration. If you can avoid the temptation to keep it in Sports mode and drive with a heavy foot, it also gets better gas mileage than the base model. It has the feel and the door-thunk of a heavier car, and the speakers are great, particularly with a CD or the Sirius XM radio.

I test drove just about every brand of mid-sized sedan except Chevy, Mazda and Ford. The Hyundai smoked them all for style, trim packages of things that I really wanted, best bang for the buck, as well as many standard options that were extra in other brands (hello Honda!). Slick exterior styling (looks more expensive that it is many people have commented) and very comfortable and quiet cabin. Love the entertainment system and it is painless to switch from Apple Carpay to Siruis to CD etc. Simply put: I love this car!!!!!!!!
