The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Is a Shockingly Quirky Midsize Sedan
Doug DeMuro
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is surprisingly quirky. Today I'm reviewing the new 2020 Sonata and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the new Sonata. I'm also going to show you around the Hyundai Sonata and review the driving experience of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata.

    Correction! If you push the Hyundai badge on the trunk, the trunk opens.

    Hyundai didn't get any letters... The engineers were just like everyone else and did not want to smell windshield washer fluid every day in the winter. Us people who deal with winter typically go through a couple bottles per winter, Doug.

    The less power engine is actually fast than the 2.5. That 2.5 is notoriously slow off the line.

    Ok ok. There is a button on the outside of the car to open the trunk! It’s inside the Hyundai symbol on the trunk lid. Part of its sensitive that you press and it opens! And the whole thing with opening the trunk with standing by it you have to stand pretty close for like 3-4 seconds without moving while you have the key fob on you!

    Don't really get all the emphasis on acceleration and sport. This is a family sedan. Room, storage, visibility, livability, quietness, fuel economy, safety rating, reliability, value that's really what the average buyer of this vehicle would want. I guess the reviewers need to talk about handling and acceleration and cornering but if it isn't a sports sedan, that's not the point of the car. If you want a sports sedan, Hyundai makes the superb Genesis G70. And it's funny to hear talk of how well the Camry accelerates. Mostly I see Camry's driven like old-school Buicks. Camrys are refined but ubiquitous. This is just something different that's not an Accord or a Camry. And I think that's the appeal of it. And yeah, more people like SUVs or crossovers or whatever you want to call them. But there is still interest and a market for sedans. People are still buying them, just fewer people.

    if they offered a turbo V6 with about 250hp and AWD, i might seriously consider purchasing this vehicle

    Hyundai and Kia are complete garbage. There is a huge class action lawsuit against them because their engines fail at 80K and after. Even the "All New" 2020 Sonata is having engine problems. Also, their customer service may be the worst in the business. I can't wait to get rid of my junk Sonata and go back to Toyota.

    I don't really get the obsession with crossovers and SUVs. I guess they're just more practical now that the fuel economy in them isn't terrible and they just have more room. It's just incredibly boring to see young people in their 20s with money driving these things around. It's just boring. I mean, you have the money, much better to get a decked out sedan before you have a family to haul around.

    You seemed to like this car Doug you don’t normally like family sedans but that sumin feature is pretty awesome it’s well price

    I would love a mod in which the DRL in the front stretches along the chrome line and goes through the entire car (like underlining the windows)

  • 데스키DesKey

    17:02 actually there's a hidden trunk button on the upper part of the 'H' logo. that's the one feature to be known if you own one of those.

      I know but I kinda like it! Actually I really like it!! Perhaps the 2021 Optima is better looks-wise. Powertrains and interiors are nearly identical. Ultimately it's up to the individual person to decide.

  • Peter Row

    What a great feature! If I can't find my vehicle in a crowded car-park, I could just make it creep forward, then look for it. And if I still can't see it, I'll just listen for the angry honks as it blocks the lane! I can't wait for this to be in every car.

    Remote driving and awesome blindspot integration, yet only 1 seat-back net and no trunk pull inside!? Crazy. Those interior plastics look low-rent too

    Single net is not a cost cutting thing I presume. The driver can't use the driver seat's net and the passenger simply don't need to use the driver's seat net.

    The most ugliest car ever! It’s even uglier than FIAT MULTIPLA! 🙃 The buyers of this car are getting free Magnum 357 in the glovebox! Guess why? To shoot themself when they realized what did they bought!

    • Kenny Larson
      Kenny Larson

      EVEmasta even if i am on crack I would never buy this AC/ Dishwasher, refrigerator brand called Hyundai! Enjoy in your piece of shit Sonata!

    • EVEmasta

      @Kenny Larson you're on crack if you think Camry has better interior or infotainment. They're trying to make it look simplistic, no shit they're gonna take stuff from European cars. Lol enjoy your crusty ass Camry then

    • Kenny Larson
      Kenny Larson

      EVEmasta interior? Check all Hyundai models and you will see that they copied the whole interiors from European cars: SEAT, Peugeot etc! Btw the Camry is Rolls Royce compared with this piece of 💩 And remember something: WHEN VAG MERCEDES AND FORD STARTS MAKING CARS, the name Hyundai doesn’t even exist! Period

    • EVEmasta

      Name me a sedan that has a better interior and infotainment system...don't worry I'll wait

  • Kroum Stamboliev

    You have to walk more that 20 feet away after locking for more that 20 seconds for the smart trunk to work.

  • 막가즈아

    World best car sonata


    10:12 I think the car telling you the current weather, is more like a fact check, so people will drive carefully ;)

  • Fifthcell

    And people don’t give the grille on this car shit, but they give the Lexus spindle grille shit?

    • Daniel Hernandez
      Daniel Hernandez

      They do. They call this grille a catfish grille even though it's not. I personally like this grille over Lexus's spindle grille.

    So... with that Key-Fob feature, you basically get a free, 1:1 scale remote-controlled version of your car. Neat-o :) Also, that stuff about Autos nowadays just being buttons, there's a 60s Chrysler engineer somewhere up there face-palming, since they'd already used this with the A-904 TorquFlites back then :)))

  • Jimz

    The front end: 😝🤮

    • DillyDilly02

      Jimz I think it looks fantastic lol

    I have the 13' GLS 6SPD trans V6 and I love it!! Those "sounds of nature" could become handy for when you're on the phone and telling your boss about your nature hike being more important than his meeting, when in reality your stuck in boring traffic.

    I really like where Hyundai is going with their new models I can only hope the 2021 model or the 2022 model has that light feature that's in the headlight and goes up the hood I wish they would continue that body line Lite all the way following the original chrome trim another words go all the way around the windows to the side of the vehicle so that when the person's turn signal is engaged the entire side of the car is blinking I think this would prevent so many side to side collisions and would give so much more informative decision making on the cars around them it would allow the car to stand out like no other and would improve safety tremendously how many times have you been next to a car that's turning and you have no idea that it's turning into your lane other than visual observation this is extremely hard at night but if it had the light follow the Chrome all the way around the windows everyone would know when this car is turning and would make it a true one of a kind and look awesome in the process
