Combining Safety, Clever Design, and Long-Term Value, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata Delivers on Every Front

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is no stranger to praise. If anything it's grown accustomed to it lately, with numerous critical venues offering recognition for its impressive safety and refined design. Now Kelly Blue Book has offered the sedan another piece of important praise. The famous consumer resource recently awarded the Sonata its 5-Year Cost to Own award for the mid-size sedan class.

What exactly does that mean? The 5-Year Cost to Own award is given to vehicles that provide a special level of long-term value when compared to their competitors. Drivers who choose a Sonata will get more and pay less over the first five years of their vehicle's life than they would in one of its competitors.

The award, according to, Hyundai executives, is just another sign of how hard the automaker works to give its customers a superior experience. "The fact that not only the Sonata, but Hyundai overall, is being recognized highlights our focus on making every aspect of vehicle ownership better," said Scott Margason the director of Product Planning at Hyundai Motor America. "For the Sonata, it’s yet another indication that the redesigned 2018 model is pushing the boundaries of what can be expected. For Hyundai as a whole, it highlights our view that quality driver experience includes value over time."

With a price tag starting under $23,000 and a bevy of valuable options for features and powertrains, it should serve as no surprise that people like what the Sonata has to offer.
