The 2008 Hyundai Sonata offers a great deal in terms of standard features.
Experts at TheCarConnection.com find the Hyundai Sonata 2008 list of standard equipment to be impressive, as did Kelley Blue Book, which calls it "one of the Sonata's key selling points...the base Sonata features a sophisticated 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, AM/FM/CD/MP3 sound system, cruise control, keyless entry, power windows and door locks, heated power side mirrors and leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel."
Car and Driver notes that since the Hyundai Sonata 2008 "is already fairly well equipped, options are few." Hyundai Sonata 2008 options are grouped into "packages," according to Automotive.com: "The Popular Equipment Package adds automatic headlights, chrome window belt moldings, upgraded interior accents, power driver seat with adjustable lumbar support, steering wheel audio controls and a trip computer...the Premium Package for either Hyundai 2008 SE adds an Infinity AM/FM/XM/6CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers, subwoofer and component amplifier; power tilt-and-slide sunroof; and an electrochromic auto-dimming rear view mirror with HomeLink and a compass...The Hyundai 2008 Limited features leather seating surfaces, eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, automatic climate control with filtration, electrochromic auto-dimming rear view mirror with HomeLink and compass, telescoping steering wheel, and a sliding center armrest."
The 2008 Hyundai Sonata base model has enough features to satisfy most drivers.
