Advantages of the 2019 Hyundai Sonata

As you prepare to finance, note that the MSRP for the Hyundai Sonata is $1,500 lower than that of the Nissan Altima. The engines between the Sonata and the Altima are very similar. The Sonata is capable of three more horsepower and the torque on both vehicles is the same. However, the transmission for the two are drastically different. The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission while the 2019 Nissan Altima will have a 2-speed CVT. The main difference for these is the gears. A CVT is gearless, so it won’t give quite that authentic car feel that many drivers like. The 6-speed automatic will have the gears so you can hear and feel them shifting as you drive. Finally, the warranty for the Hyundai Sonata lasts much longer than the Altima. To learn more about the 2019 Hyundai Sonata, click the button below and one of our staff members will reach out to you!
