Hyundai Sonata vs. Toyota Camry New Bern NC

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata Delivers Unbeatable Technology

The Hyundai Sonata and the Toyota Camry have long been in direct competition for which car can claim the title of best four-door sedan. Both cars deliver on safety by producing 5-star overall safety ratings, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

With that being said, we finally have a winner.

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata has tech features that the 2016 Toyota Camry can't match. The Sonata offers a 4.2 inch color LCD infotainment system that is designed to reduce driver distraction. It's also available equipped with Android Auto™, and will soon offer Apple CarPlay. These systems allow the driver to control his or her phone through the car's touchscreen or by voice control.

Another feature that Hyundai has included to make your life easier is the Sonata's Hands-Free Smart Trunk. It can be tricky to open the trunk with a hand full of groceries, but the Sonata eliminates any difficulties. When the Proximity Key is within range, the smart trunk will automatically open. If you drive a Camry, you'll find yourself still opening the door manually.

If you want to enjoy a beautiful day, the 2016 Sonata delivers with its panoramic sunroof, another feature the Toyota Camry lacks. You'll have to settle for the windows down, where the person at the stoplight will have a clear view of you jamming to your favorite radio station.

2016 Sonata Drives Better and Smoother Than Its Competition

Determined to improve performance, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata features more advanced powertrain options than the Toyota Camry. The Sonata also has more standard horsepower than the Camry, and Hyundai offers up to 245 hp with its Limited 2.0T and Sport 2.0T configurations.

Even though both models have 6-speed automatic transmissions, the Sonata is also available with a 7-speed EcoShift ® Dual Clutch Transmission. This means the Sonata memorizes your driving habits and adapts accordingly. If you regularly find yourself accelerating at a rapid pace, your Sonata will adjust its shift points in order to produce the most efficient power and acceleration.

With all newer Hyundai models, the aim is to provide better responsiveness by revising its 2.4L four-cylinder engine found in SE, Limited, and Sport models. What this means for you is that you'll get to experience the ability to quicker acceleration than the Camry.

If you want to see all of the 2016 Hyundai Sonata's advantages for yourself, you'll have to take a test drive. Schedule an appointment at Hyundai of New Bern today so we can give you the full tour.
