Hyundai Sonata Named a KBB Best Family Car

2016 Hyundai Sonata

Families have loved the spacious, stylish, and affordable Hyundai Sonata for years. With the Kelley Blue Book award for best family car under its belt, the Sonata has truly beaten out the competition.

Discover the great family friendly features of the Sonata, and decide on the best model for your crew.

Ample Interior Space and Comfort

If you don't think of sedans as roomy family vehicles, take a closer look at the 2016 Hyundai Sonata. This sedan might not look large from the outside, but it actually has more passenger room and total interior space than any other vehicle in the same class. That means there's plenty of leg room for up to five passengers and ample cargo space in the back.

For drivers, the Sonata provides serious comfort, with an available ventilated driver's seat with power lumbar support and an available leather-wrapped steering wheel. For passengers, available heated rear seats make even the chilliest winter mornings comfortable.

Family Friendly Entertainment

Kelley Blue Book knows how important it is to keep everyone occupied in the car, whether you're just running errands across town or you're taking off on a long road trip. The Hyundai Sonata keeps everyone engaged with an audio system that includes HD Radio, Sirius Satellite Radio, and built-in USB jacks for your smartphone. All models also come standard with Bluetooth connectivity, which means you can stream your favorite music right from your smartphone.

For more advanced entertainment options, upgrade to the available Infinity audio system. With 400 watts of power and nine speakers, the Infinity system delivers rich sound and superior audio quality that everyone can enjoy.

Excellent Safety Features

Reliable safety features are at the top of most families' must-have lists, and here the Hyundai Sonata offers nothing but the best. As the recipient of a prestigious Top Safety Pick+ Award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it's clear that the Sonata means business when it comes to safety.

A rearview camera comes standard with each model, ensuring that you can see hard-to-spot places. Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, and the Traction Control System help you stay safely on the road in challenging conditions. Brake Assist and Electronic Brake-force Distribution help you apply pressure while staying in control in tough braking situations. Available safety features like Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection, and Automatic Emergency Braking make the Hyundai Sonata one of the safest vehicles on the road for families.

Great Value for Budget-Minded Families

No matter how many features and options a vehicle has, chances are you don't want to pay an arm and a leg for them. Fortunately, the Hyundai Sonata delivers when it comes to value. With a starting MSRP of $21,750, the Sonata SE comes standard with all of the Hyundai safety features you depend on and the basic tech features you don't want to live without. For families on a larger budget, the Sonata Limited includes top-of-the-line options and features at an MSRP of $34,075.
