After being developed as a reputed car manufacturer and quickly climbing up the automobile social ladder to be a fierce rival in the American auto market, Hyundai-- the famous Korean automobile manufacturer-- has taken it quite seriously to generate automobiles worthy enough to contend against its long-standing Japanese rivals. Recently, Hyundai has actually improved its sedan line-up and focused more on electronic integration and innovation. Hyundai Sonata, which is relatively new in this class, has actually had the ability to test America's mid-size car winner: the Camry. In this economic sedan clash between two Asian archrivals, we will see how the new Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry contends against each other.


Design Highlights:

Both automobiles show off an elegant body and a well-designed chassis, lightweight style and a balanced body. In their 2019 version, both sedans look upscale and each has a different technique when it involves exterior styling. Camry has received a complete redesign and currently includes several stylish adjustments for a completely new and sports look. Hyundai kept the base Sonata model straightforward, gave the turbocharged versions aggressive styling and a flashy looking body. Black bezel headlights, mesh radiator grille, black DRL surrounds, dark chrome molding, and a rear bumper with diffuser are several of the best outside highlights of the brand-new Sonata Limited 2.0T.

Inside, both cars have upscale cabins with a significant focus on safety, convenience, and cabin tech. The 2019 Camry boasts a well-equipped dashboard, cabin with innovative functions, power seats with leather, and high-end padding for even more guest comfort. Sonata, in its highest trim, looks filled with well-executed options. There is an upgraded audio system, information and entertainment system with technology pkg. and high-end natural leather trims inside the Sonata's well-equipped cabin. Two zone climate control, power moonroof and hands-free smart trunk are a few of the coolest upgrades on the new Sonata. The new model is roomier, flaunts far better leg and head space, and a good-sized cargo area.

Performance Highlights

Both cars include a fuel efficient 4-cylinder engine on the base version, yet inside Sonata Limited 2.0 there is a 245-hp 2.0 L Turbo 4-cylinder that imitates a high-end V-6. Camry has V-6 at higher trims, and hybrid models also. However, none of the Camry cars have AWD like Sonata. Gas saving wise, both vehicles supply outstanding Miles Per Gallon numbers in the city and on highways.

Technology Highlights

Sonata takes tech innovation to the next level. It has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration for music, maps, NAV, text messages, and entertainment. The brand-new Hyundai car has cordless charging, front and second-row USB ports, Hyundai Blue Link, and an outstanding interface outfitted with more than one device connection and app-integration features. Toyota's stylish sedan - Camry - has a variety of awesome multimedia and tech options also. This year Camry has at long last gotten Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Nonetheless, it still does not support Android Auto in its 2019 design. Simply put-- Sonata wins.
