2007 Hyundai Sonata with review and picture


Even its name makes you feel calm. The 2007 Hyundai Sonata. Ignoring the year, which never sounds graceful, you have the foreign click of Hyundai quickly followed by the soothing canto of the word Sonata. And in this case, the name fits. The Sonata was redesigned last year, and comes with a couple more improvements in 2007, and its still going calm and strong as MotorWeek’s best family sedan. It’s got a few other prizes under its belt, and all well-earned, because this car is definitely one that is beneficial for those who are carting around a family, and even those who aren’t.

In safety, it is on the top of the pyramid, earning five stars in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s crash test ratings for hits on the front and side. That’s the highest rating they’ve got, people. It comes with dual-stage front airbags, and adds side bags for protection of the abdominal area, as well side curtain airbags for the head. With antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability control, and electronic brake force distribution, one need not worry when driving this thing.

It comes in three versions, dropping last year’s GL and offering a range of engine choices and features. The base level, the GLS, comes in at just about seventeen thousand dollars, a good price for such security and comfort. Its options are 17-inch tires with five spoke aluminum wheels, as well as fog lamps and more. It comes standard with

  • four cylinder engine
  • manual or automatic transmission
  • cruise control
  • central locking
  • keyless entry
  • six speaker sound system
  • tilt steering wheel covered in leather
  • XM Satellite Radio

The SE prices slightly over twenty thousand and has options of a sunroof, Homelink, CD changer, MP3 player, and subwoofer. It includes

  • 3.3 liter V6 engine
  • five speed Shiftronic automatic transmission
  • solar-control glass
  • fog lights
  • lumbar support for the driver
  • trip computer

The Limited, and the last of the bunch, is priced at barely under twenty three thousand, with the same options as the SE. It comes with

  • leather seats
  • heated front seats
  • automatic Air Quality System
  • Homelink
  • compass
  • telescoping steering wheel
  • chrome-accented door handles
