2019 Hyundai Sonata vs. Its Competition

2019 Hyundai Sonata
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

There’s no shortage of mid-size sedan choices, but a few automakers have done a good job of making their options stand out.

The latest Honda Accord smacks home runs from several angles, from hybrid fuel economy to style to value.

The Toyota Camry’s sold very well; it’s more engaging to drive than ever, but the styling’s an admitted challenge to the eyes.

The Mazda 6 now has turbo power, but isn’t much more exciting to drive.

The Legacy’s standard all-wheel drive is a plus, its banality a minus.

Ford won’t be selling the Fusion for much longer, but we’ll always fondly recall its sharp steering, pretty body, and high-economy hybrid and plug-in models.
