Against competitors like the new Toyota Camry, where Sonata pulls ahead is plain to see. Check out the Hyundai sedan that bests the rest here at Circle Hyundai.

For one, our Hyundai pulls into Shrewsbury Avenue offering more as well as a wider variety of features than Camry, often at the same value or for less. That's owing to a recently rolled-out mid-year refreshment. Secondly, Sonata even caught the attention of the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, which gave its attention-grabbing exterior and construction overall a much-coveted GOOD DESIGN Award. But these aren't all that set the new Sonata apart.

Inside and out, it's ours that excels. Sonata is, first of all, wider than Camry by track both up front and in the rear, the better evocation of mid-size sedan prowess and certainly promising the drive-time stability and comfort that comes with it. Its fuel tank is larger, too, at 18.5 gallons, meaning fewer trips to the pump between Middletown, NJ and Freehold. Plus, at a huge 122.4 cubic feet total, 2018 Sonata offers more interior room for that trip out to Asbury Park than any other car in the class, with 2.0 cubic feet more space than Camry to boot for the cargo your friends from Red Bank plan to bring along. You'll all be relaxed for the ride as well, given that Sonata front seating comes available heated and ventilated. You won't find ventilation in Camry. Factor in an optionally heated steering wheel, dual-zone auto climate control, and an Integrated Memory System standard for both the driver's seat and mirrors, and it's clear: Sonata is the more accommodating drive.

Of course, it's tech-savvy, too, incorporating smartphone compatibility via standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, neither of which Camry offers. You can even find optional wireless charging support for Qi-compatible devices as well as front and rear USB charging available. Unique Blue Link functionality is included complimentary for 3 years as well, offering such remote capabilities as door locking and unlocking, Monthly Vehicle Health Report generation, and the celebrated Destination Search powered by Google -- superb for when you're shuttling between West Long Branch and Shrewsbury and away from your ride.

2018 Hyundai Sonata even earns from the IIHS a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating as well as an overall safety rating of five stars from the NHTSA, making it a safe bet. That's not to mention that it includes "America's Best Warranty." Count on 5 years or 60,000 miles of New Vehicle Limited coverage, for example, which is 2 years and 24,000 miles more than Toyota Camry. It gets better. You can also look forward to 10 years or 100,000 miles of limited coverage on its powertrain, 5 years and 40,000 miles more than the competition. It's got 5 years of 24-hour Roadside Assistance for unlimited miles as well --peace of mind long down that ownership road.

Best of all, Sonata is the more affordable option, and there's even more where its advancements came from. You can check them out in a competitive comparison we made right here on our website. Then, stop by Circle Hyundai here on Shrewsbury Avenue for a spin, and you'll see what we mean, up close and personal!
