Hyundai is known for having reliable vehicles with spacious interiors, good fuel economy, and a long list of features. While there are many to choose from, our team at Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos will go over the top three Hyundai models to consider this year.
We’ll give drivers like you in the Cerritos, Long Beach, Anaheim, and Downey areas a detailed look at the Elantra, Sonata, and Tucson. Read all about them below, and contact us if you have any questions.
The 2018 Elantra is a good compact car for its fuel economy, cargo room, and list of available features. It comes standard with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that’s paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC® and Active ECO System. And with the automatic transmission, the vehicle can achieve up to an EPA-estimated 29 city/38 highway MPG.*
The vehicle offers plenty of room for five passengers, including 42.2 inches of front legroom, 35.7 inches of rear legroom, and 95.8 ft3 of passenger volume. There’s also a 14.4 ft3 trunk, so you’ll have plenty of room for grocery bags, luggage, or other items.
The Elantra comes standard with cloth seats, but has available leather seating. Plus, there are available heated front and rear seats, so everyone on board can stay cozy on cooler nights.
For entertainment, there’s the available 7-inch or 8-inch display audio or navigation system with a high-resolution touchscreen. There’s standard Bluetooth® capability to stream audio or make hands-free phone calls. Plus, there’s the available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ features. These let you connect your compatible smartphone to the vehicle to access your music playlists, text messages, navigation, and more.
The 2018 Sonata is a midsize vehicle that also has good fuel economy and lots of cargo room. It has plenty of technologies, as well, to help keep you connected, entertained, and safe.
The vehicle comes standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that’s mated to a:
- 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® (standard)
- 7-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC® (available)
- 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® (available)
And the vehicle can help you drive farther for longer, as it achieves up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/37 highway MPG.*
It offers plenty of cargo room, with 16.3 ft3 of trunk space. Plus, it has available heated and ventilated front seats, as well as a heated steering wheel, to stay comfortable at any time of the year.
As far as technology goes, the Sonata comes standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen display, along with Bluetooth®, Apple Carplay™, and Android Auto™. Plus, it offers SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which gives you over 150 channels of commercial-free music, plus sports, comedy, news, and more.
The car has plenty of safety features, too, including its standard Blind Spot Detection with the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert feature. If a vehicle is detected in your blind spot, or if one is approaching from the side when in reverse, the system will send a visual and audible alert.
The 2018 Tucson is a compact SUV that’s known for having spacious rear seats, high safety ratings, and a long list of standard and available features.
It comfortably seats five, as shown in the following interior dimensions…
- Front headroom: 39.6 inches
- Front legroom: 41.5 inches
- Rear headroom: 39.2 inches
- Rear legroom: 38.2 inches
- Passenger volume: 102.2 ft3
Like the Sonata, the Tucson offers heated and ventilated front seats, plus a heated steering wheel. It also offers heated rear seats, so everyone can stay warm on chillier mornings.
This SUV offers lots of driver-assisting technologies, as well, to help prevent any accidents from occurring. One such feature is Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. It’ll warn you of a possible collision with a vehicle or pedestrian detected in front of you. If you don’t react in time, the system can apply the brakes for you.
The Tucson is seen as a highly safe vehicle, as it earned a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It was also awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
