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

I have a 2017 Hyundai Tucson. I went with the Tucson because I wanted AWD. It has been one of the biggest mistakes. The first was getting a Hyundai. They don’t care about their consumers. My car has been blowing headlights- having electrical issues (my auto windows go back down when you roll them up, my rear windshield wipers go off whenever they want, my break light seems to go on and off at random. I have reached out because as a company they should only want the best products out there. I was told that “because my car is over 3 years old. There is nothing they can do for me. To bring it to a dealer and “see what I can get” for it. I owe more than it’s worth because one thing they don’t tell you when you buy a Hyundai is they depreciate way faster than you can make payments to survive. DO NOT BUY A HYUNDAI.

I get 32-35Hwy interstate @ 70 mph! 15-20 city, still love Hyundai been a faithful customer for 20 years... PS you can't beat the "price point" you get a lot for little... great review!

for smart trunk you have to walk from driver side pr passenger side....... and trunk hole is less to provide more rigidity to the back end of the car in casse of side impact.... so yaah that is reasonable .... and i think many people dont take sedasns for long hauling things for that you should get and suv lol

What u missed is 1.6 is a turboengine It means "low end torque " Which will never get in a engine which is naturally aspirated
Mark Olmsted
Mark Olmsted Pirms 12 dienām
So basically you get the "punch" on the bottom not on the high end, also natural aspirated engines achieve optimum performance when reaching max revs!
Why sonata don't have anymore a 2.0L turbocharged with 245 hp...??

Quirky engine upgrade? Perhaps a lighter 1.6/180hp configuration is superior to the 2.4/190 hp configuration. Bigger isn’t always better, especially when it comes to speed and acceleration. Keep listening to this quirky guy talk about what he thinks is quirky and you’ll realize that you’ve watched too many commercial breaks and wasted your time.
Richardlizhu Pirms 25 dienām
I don't think car manufacturers only put one storage pocket on the seats to cut costs, probably some reason which has to do with potentially interfering with the person sitting in front if you're fumbling around in there?

A quirk or two you mentioned has existed since 2015. 2015 - 2019 Sonata Limited heated/cooled seat switches are also part of the automatic climate control head. Smart trunk has also existed since 2015, but the car has to be locked in order for it to work. I imagine that's the problem you were having getting it to work in your video. You made no mention with the 2020, but with my 2015 if you have the heat or air conditioning blowing on a high fan speed and press the voice command button to either answer a call, send a text, tell Google maps where you want to go, the blower speed will decrease to reduce background noise. It also changes speed with the opening or closing of the panoramic sunroof.

It's only in the US that I see mid sized sedans going out of fashion but everywhere else in the world no one is buying a SUV and there is a massive demand for sedans, especially like Hyundai, Honda, kia or toyoto. I'm from Asia btw

Looks are subjective, so whether you prefer the looks of the Sonata versus the Accord or Camry, you aren't wrong or right. Though I personally think the Accord has the best interior of the 3. If you are in the market for a high end sedan, for not much more you can get into a Honda Accord Touring with 60 more horsepower and a lot fewer quirks. I just can't see considering the Sonata over the Accord which has a far better reputation. The Sonata would need to be much much less for me to even consider it. If you have $40k to spend on a sedan, $2k difference is negligible, get the better rated Accord.

There is a trunk release button, it is hidden inside the rear emblem! The open space above the H inside the emblem is the button. I think it is a poor design once the first owner sells the car, but also a cool design if you know about it!

You can tell that a former designer/executive from Audi is now working at Hyundai. The temperature ctrl knob for the A/C is Audi as is the grill and the seat-back storage netting. Pushing the Hyundai badge for the trunk is also VW AG

why the fuck does it look like Maserati from the front.
that is a beautiful car and I've never liked Hyundai at all and this car if it had more powerful would definitely be something i would look into more seriously
Never once smelled washer fluid coming in the air but then again i pretty much never have the air on anything but recirculation

The small engine is for Turkey i think hyundai is very popular here. Because in my country the taxes are all about the engine liter. if the car is over 2000cc engine tax is %220 (factory sell the car 10.000 dolar turkey goverment adds 22.000 dolar tax and i must pay 32.000 total), if the engine is under 1600cc tax is %80. So buying a new car is very very difficult for us. a small example 2020 bmw 7.40Ld xdrive costs ''382.000'' dolar after the new taxes

I have had my SEL plus for over a month and I love it and yea could it be faster sure but it's not a dog like this guy is saying I think it does better than the numbers suggest that's for sure the gas mileage is great. For the price point it's a great car The warranty is kick ass 5years or 50k miles bumper to bumper 10 years 100k power train .And at the dealer where I bought my car I get free oil changes and as long as I service my car there they will cover the under warranty.

Doug, the reason the smart trunk thing didn’t work, apparently you have to stand there for three to four seconds before it opens. Probably to avoid unintentionally opening it if you’re going around back of the car. Also in the Hyundai “H” emblem, there’s a hidden button for popping the trunk there as well.
