The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is surprisingly quirky. Today I'm reviewing the new 2020 Sonata and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the new Sonata. I'm also going to show you around the Hyundai Sonata and review the driving experience of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata.

Correction! If you push the Hyundai badge on the trunk, the trunk opens.

the smart trunk feature only activates after the car's been locked for I think it's 30 seconds and the key has been removed from the area

I have a 2017 Hyundai Tucson. I went with the Tucson because I wanted AWD. It has been one of the biggest mistakes. The first was getting a Hyundai. They don’t care about their consumers. My car has been blowing headlights- having electrical issues (my auto windows go back down when you roll them up, my rear windshield wipers go off whenever they want, my break light seems to go on and off at random. I have reached out because as a company they should only want the best products out there. I was told that “because my car is over 3 years old. There is nothing they can do for me. To bring it to a dealer and “see what I can get” for it. I owe more than it’s worth because one thing they don’t tell you when you buy a Hyundai is they depreciate way faster than you can make payments to survive. DO NOT BUY A HYUNDAI.

You have an issue with your driving. Can you explain to me why when you open the throttle you always look back ??? Do you expect anyone else to overtake you ?

SmartStream is the new engine line from Hyundai. Used by Hyundai, Kia and Genesis. G is for gasoline and D is for Diesel. So this here is the SmartStream G 2.5 GDi.

"...This is the world's first production engine to use Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology, allowing it to adjust how long its intake valves remain open independently of timing and lift. Hyundai claims a 4% increase in performance, 5% increase in efficiency, and a 12% decrease in tailpipe emissions due to this technology." "The engine makes 180 PS (178 hp; 132 kW) at 5,500 rpm or 204 PS (201 hp; 150 kW) at 6,000 rpm depending on application, with 27 kg⋅m (195 lb⋅ft; 265 N⋅m) of torque between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm." Quoted from the smartstream engine wiki page. In other words, the upgraded engine can make anywhere between 180-201 hp depending on the car's adjustment of the valve duration. The customer is paying for the 9 years of R&D as well as a world first from an engineering standpoint. Engineering Explained does a great video on this new technology. Check it out!

Hyundai Sonata has a problem where the engine seizes without warning. The average repair cost is about $5,000 and the average mileage at the time of seizing is around 90,000 miles. A class action lawsuit in 2015 found the 2.4-liter engine to be defective.

Not a bad car if you never need a trunk. Mine decided to stop closing today and I had to climb in through the back seat to rig up a nylon tie until I can find time to go to the dealer. Who has moved. I bought it because the drive train warranty is amazing. Too bad it doesn't have a trunk due to a known problem they don't seem interested in fixing.

Ty Doug, and gr8 commentary and video. Wow, Your Doug score was brutal and glad you said, "It's a family sedan!!!" I actually bought a 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited for me and the 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited for my wife! I'm actually waititng for the 2021 Hyundai N Line Sonata which they will be taking the 2020 Sonata Limited in return for being a preferred customer which had ordered the N model.

In Korea, being a small country with over 50 million population, it is one of the densest places in the world. Although we have multi-lane roads some parking spaces are very narrow and limited. Therefore, remote driving is needed and practical.

Great review does but I'm really disappointed in Hyundai for doing this as I was a Hyundai Sonata Limited guy.I love all the new features and they stick that stupid 1.6 l turbo in.
Steven Corbo
Steven Corbo Пре месец
On every level they should have given the sonata limited the 2.5 l engine or a 2.0 turbo not a 1.6 l which is an Elantra engine. that's the same reason why Volkswagen hasn't been successful is they keep trying to push smaller engines at a higher price point. I'm not going to pay 32 or 33,000 for a 1.6 l turbo.shame as I was going to buy a new sonata limited this year and then they did this because I like everything else about this car but the engine

Doug I want to thank you for calling out the BS HYUNDAI PULLED ON ITS LOYAL BUYERS. THE LIMITED IS SUPPOSED TO BE THEIR UPGRADED MOTOR and they stick a 1.6L turbo with less power than the base model deeply disappointing when you raise the price point I would have bought this car if it had the 2.5 l four cylinder because I love The limited. They also took away the rear heated seats that I had in my 2015

Idiot there's a secret release when you tap the hyundai logo in the trunk. And if you want to open it automatically. You need to stay near the trunk for 3 seconds with your key. Who gave you the authority to review?

Just traded my 2019 Kona Ironman (yes I actually bought a Kona Ironman) for a new 2020 Sonata Limited. My other car is a 2020 Genesis G90 5.0 HTRAC and this Sonata is closer to the $80,000 G90 than you might think. Love them both. Of course I loved the Kona Ironman UNTIL the novelty wore off and keeping the matte gray paint clean became a real pain. Anyway am very happy with the Sonata Limited and I would highly recommend it. Mine is exactly the same as is shown in the video - Stormy Seas (Blue) and Camel Leather.

@Doug N Yes it was and a pain in the butt to keep up. I just saw it on the showroom floor and had to have it. The bloom left the rose after about 6 months and I really lost interest in it. Don't really need two cars (my wife and I are both retired) but I do love getting them. Anyway the Ironman was a mistake but the G90 and the Sonata were not.

The average hp might be more for the smaller engine. most americans don't go over 5k rpm and since hp is a function of torque and rpm that smaller engine might not be reving higher. the dyno sheets would tell all.

Windscreen washer may be used in California 5 times a year, in my country there are months that you need to use it 5 times a day, even hour sometimes. So, preventing its smell to enter the car is a very useful feature. You are an American. So, I feel the need to mention that on this planet there are 7,500 million people who are NOT American. I know it is hard to imagine there exist people outisde of the USA but there are.

Doug, my 2015 Kia Sedona has the smart trunk feature. The doors need to be locked and you have to be far away from the car then walk up to it for it to open automatically.

Doug I like your reviews and they are very thorough. A small piece of advice the word “quirk” is being over used and it’s like a blackboard scratch situation every time you say it....tone it down if possible. Also if your dress sense could be slightly improved with a polo shirt and some trousers it would seem more professional to say the least. Nevertheless great reviews and I somehow always end up watching your videos above others!!!!!
