When it comes to sedans, perhaps even the entire lineup, the Sonata is without a doubt the most iconic model Hyundai has to offer. It has been around longer than three decades and continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the midsize sedan segment, which is arguably the most competitive segment on the entire market, if not the car market at least. This year marks a new beginning for the legendary sedan as it enters its eighth generation, with details still not being fully released at the time of this page’s creation.
Even still, we wanted to take the information we do know and see how the all-new 2020 Hyundai Sonata compares to one of its biggest competitors, so we decided to pit it against the 2020 Honda Accord. The result shows just how similar these two sedans are, and proves that the Sonata is one of the best options in the segment.
The Honda Accord is consistently considered to be one of the top offerings on the sedan market as a whole, but specifically within the midsize sedan segment. Glancing through the table up above shows that the Sonata is nearly identical in terms of these important specifications, meaning it’s just as great an option itself, despite the slight deficits!
The first row shows horsepower, of which the Hyundai Sonata is expected to generate 191 of, just one less than the 2020 Accord. When it comes to fuel efficiency, the preliminary estimation that Hyundai has made in terms of its combined fuel economy rating is identical to the Accord’s 33 miles per gallon. That could change one way or the other when the EPA makes its official estimate, but we expect it to be very close to that number.
Finally, both sedans offer seating for the typical 5, which was to be expected. Of course, the all-new Sonata is packed with great content and cutting-edge technology, which you can read all about on our blog or give us a call to find out more. We cannot wait to help you find your next new vehicle!
