What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For There's plenty of kit for your money and it should give trouble-free motoring

Against The Sonata's styling is odd, the drive is dull and the car lacks any real executive class

Verdict It's fine if you want a large, undemanding, toy-laden saloon that's cheap to buy

Go for… 2.7-litre CDX

Avoid… 2.0-litre versions

Hyundai Sonata Saloon

  • 2. Mini-cab drivers like them - so make sure you don't inadvertently end up with one that has was a cab in a former life
  • 3. Ensure all the gadgets work, including the air-con
  • 4. Listen to the suspension and axles for unusual noises - if you hear any, walk away
  • 5. Passenger space is very generous front and rear
