Returning this year after a recent redesign, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata continues to push the midsize sedan segment forward with its sophisticated and spacious interior, strong ride quality, and loaded features list, all at a surprisingly affordable price. And it’s on sale now at your Moore-area Hyundai dealer, AutoMax Hyundai of Norman. Of course, the Sonata isn’t alone in the segment, and many potential buyers may have a look at the 2016 Honda Accord. However, a closer look reveals the areas where the 2016 Hyundai Sonata beats the Accord outright.


Both models boast an array of standard features, including Bluetooth connectivity, 16-inch alloy wheels, full power features, automatic headlights, and cruise control. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata, however, gets a number of base features that are either unavailable or cost more on the Honda Accord, such as satellite radio, a heated exterior mirror, a rear spoiler, premium cloth upholstery, and front lumbar support.

Warranty Coverage

Warranty coverage on the 2016 Hyundai Sonata is also noticeably better than on the 2016 Honda Accord. Every Sonata gets a five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, a 10-year / 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a seven-year corrosion perforation warranty. All of those exceed the Accord’s warranties, which include a three-year / 36,000-mile basic warranty, a five-year / 60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a five-year corrosion perforation warranty.

Fuel Economy

While both models come with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that makes 185 horsepower, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata gets better base fuel economy than the 2016 Honda Accord. The Honda Accord’s base trim comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission that only gets an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway and 23 mpg city. Those numbers can be improved only if you opt for a more expensive transmission. Meanwhile, the Hyundai Sonata reaches EPA estimates of 38 mpg highway and 25 mpg city.
