It wasn’t all that long ago that people bought Hyundai’s because they were a less-expensive alternative to Toyotas and Hondas.
Nowadays, though, Hyundai models across all price points more than hold their own against the competition. A good case in point is the midsized Sonata four-door sedan, which earns high marks in one of the most fiercely competitive and crowded segments of the marketplace.
U.S. News & World Report ranks the 2013 Sonata in a dead heat with the all-new Ford Fusion Hybrid as being the very best among affordable sedans and ranks the Sonata Hybrid third. That’s mighty impressive, any way you look at it.
