Model Honored for Safety and Features by Families and Auto Experts
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 25, 2015 – The 2015 Hyundai Sonata was named a Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com Best Family Car of 2015. The Sonata was recognized for providing families with safety, comfort, compatibility with car seats, cargo space, rear-seat entertainment and extra features. The vehicles were evaluated by families and the automotive experts of KBB.com.
“The redesigned Sonata continues to deliver on key attributes that are important to today’s families – safety, value, technology, ride and roominess,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Later this year, the affordable Sonata will be equipped with Apple® CarPlay and Android® Auto, providing families with the ability to make calls, send messages, use navigation, stream music and more straight from their smartphones. In addition to an added level of convenience, this can improve safety by reducing distraction, owing to the familiar smartphone interface."
The all-new seventh-generation 2015 Sonata offers a more refined look through a new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise, vibration and harshness and advanced safety and convenience features. Sonata truly democratizes the premium design and convenient technology of the Genesis sedan for the mid-size class.
This distinction continues to highlight Sonata’s appeal to family buyers as it also recently won the Cars.com, USA TODAY, MotorWeek Midsize Sedan Challenge and was named the Best Midsize Car for the Money by U.S. News & World Report.
