The 2015 Hyundai Sonata Has Arrived in Boulder

Drivers looking for a sedan have probably heard of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, which offers a host of features, including:

  • Front and rear disc braking system
  • Direct-injected fuel system
  • Remote keyless entry

However, drivers who settle for the Sonata may be sorry. With superior sedans like the 2015 Honda Accord on this year’s market, the Sonata is obsolete. When it comes to fuel economy, power, safety, and reliability, the Accord offers drivers much more.

The 2015 Honda Accord Sedan brings a respectable 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway (Sedan CVT models), which is 2 more city mpg than the Sonata offers (at 25 mpg city). Despite its superior fuel economy numbers, the Accord also has more available torque than the Sonata, offering 181 lb-ft at 3,900 RPM. The Sonata only offers 178 lb-ft of torque.

If you’re concerned about surviving a serious rollover accident, the Honda Accord is worth a look. On recent NHTSA safety tests, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata scored 4 out of 5 stars on the Rollover Safety Rating, but the 2015 Honda Accord scored a 5 out of 5 in that very same test.

For reliability, the Honda Accord beats the Sonata hands down. In fact, J.D. Power ranks the Hyundai Sonata 27th on its scale of most reliable vehicles. The Honda Accord comes in with a much higher ranking – 6th out of 100.
