BUZZ: This four-door sedan doesn’t have the hardware of its younger, more prosperous Elantra sibling, but that hasn’t stopped the Sonata from becoming one of the valuable mid-sizes around. The Sonata is perfect for parents in need of a family car, but who still crave a little sex appeal with their vehicles. The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine provides the pop of a V6, and while its handling won’t blow anyone away, it the ride always feels safe and smooth. For the safety-minded, the Sonata gets top marks, scoring a perfect 5-star score from the NHTSA, and comes with a gaggle of safety features including advanced front airbags, Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD)Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS).
