FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 27, 2020 – The all-new 2020 Hyundai Sonata has been awarded the 2020 Best Auto Tech Award by Kelley Blue Book – a recognition designed to help car shoppers identify the models with the best use of in-car technology at a good price. The award honors the vehicles with the most advanced infotainment, convenience and active safety features at a great value to car buyers.
The all-new Hyundai Sonata offers innovative technology, featuring digital enhancements that rival those on vehicles at double the price. This midsize sedan is unlike any of its predecessors, showcasing Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy.
“We are honored that the all-new 2020 Sonata is the winner of Kelley Blue Book’s Best Auto Tech Award because technological innovation was a top priority for the Sonata,” said Manish Mehrotra, director, digital business planning and connected operations, Hyundai Motor America. “With a suite of safety and convenience features, including the Digital Key and Remote Smart Parking Assist, the Sonata offers drivers cutting-edge technology at class-leading value.”
The eighth-generation Hyundai Sonata uses an extensive application of advanced technologies to boost comfort, convenience and active safety, including available Digital Key Technology—allowing the vehicle to be unlocked, started and driven without a physical key. The new Digital Key can be utilized by up to four authorized users, facilitating seamless vehicle sharing. Users’ preferred settings are also stored in the car, meaning that when a user is recognized, the vehicle automatically adjusts settings for side mirrors, radio presets, sound settings, and seat positioning.
The Sonata offers advanced comfort and convenience features including standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, Bluetooth®, and an 8-inch LCD monitor. The Sonata comes standard with Hyundai’s latest SmartSense advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) – which includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Following Assist (LFA), Advanced Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) and Driver Attention Warning (DAW). The Sonata is also available with Blind View Monitor (BVM), Highway Drive Assist (HDA), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) and Remote Smart Parking Assist – which in certain limited situations enables your Hyundai to park itself with a push of your Smart Key Button.
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata has a starting MSRP of $23,600 and is now available at dealerships across the U.S.
