Hyundai typically offers a few more standard features for the dollar than rival models, and the 2010 Sonata is no exception.

TheCarConnection.com finds the standard-equipment list to be impressive, as does 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." MyRide.com notes that the Sonata now includes “USB, AUX and iPod inputs for the audio system.”

The sporty SE adds alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a power driver’s seat, and steering-wheel audio controls, while the top-of-the-line Limited model adds automatic climate control, leather heated seats, a sunroof, and upgraded trim.

Car and Driver notes that since the Sonata "is already fairly well equipped, options are few." Most notably, the Premium Package adds an Infinity audio system with six speakers, a subwoofer, a component amplifier, and power tilt-and-slide sunroof. The package no longer includes the CD changer, auto-dimming mirror, or Homelink for 2010.

A navigation system with voice control was new for 2009. MyRide.com reports the system “offers up a sharp but slightly small screen, and we found it easy enough to use during our short time with the car.” CNET proclaims that the voice command features “really floored us…It doesn't take much time with the onscreen help to figure out some useful commands. It also recognized our spoken commands with good accuracy, working just as well as the system we've used extensively in the Honda Civic.”

Conclusion

The 2010 Hyundai Sonata includes a lot of features for the money, though options aren't quite up to those of the class leaders.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
