Hyundai’s New Sonata Will Make Your Daily Commute Much More Relaxing

Rather than highlighting the sleek design of the 2018 Sonata or its host of new technologies, Hyundai has decided to promote the new sedan in a slightly more unique way.

In the new ad spot set to air nationally across the United States, the South Korean automaker says the Sonata is the perfect companion on those tedious daily commutes that create millions of aggravated drivers every day.

Just switch on the Sonata’s radio, belt out some Neil Diamond and all will be good in the world, Hyundai says. If only life was so simple…

Whatever you think of the commercial, it is hard to argue that the Sonata has come a long way in recent years and, in 2018 spec, is a very tempting proposition for those in the market for a five-door sedan. The car isn’t just affordable, starting at $22,050, but it is also available in a number of guises and includes advanced technologies such as Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning and a seven-inch infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Yes indeed. My commute will be a lot more relaxing if they don’t put high beam DRLs on all their cars. Thanks for shinning bright lights at oncoming traffic! Fuckers…

      Everyone’s sight is different I don’t think DRL’s are bright at all..

    It’s just too bad that it’s NOT a ‘five door sedan’ as the article says. THAT would have been a clever and courageous move on Hyundai’s part.

  • TheBelltower

    Yeah, okay. Are sub prime Sonata owners that chipper in traffic?

      Cheese, I think

    Still not a fan of this Sonata. The last generation was so sporty and aggressive. I would see them everywhere (still do). Now, the current one is too calmed down, and I rarely see them. This new, facelifted one just doesn’t flow. The rear end is aggressive but doesnt match the, kind of, disappointed looking front end.

    Confusing ad :/

    Having recently driven a 2016 version for two weeks and nearly fell asleep when driving due to being so bored; they could be right!

    Jeeeeze, that grille!
    Seems only the headlights and the ground were the limiting factors.
