The Hyundai Sonata has become one of the hottest midsize sedans on the market. For 2018, it has received some exciting updates. Not only does the 2018 Hyundai Sonata flaunt a striking new look, but it’s also engineered to offer improved handling and a smoother ride. A standard 100,000-mile powertrain warranty makes the Sonata an impressive value that’s hard to beat. Let’s see how the 2018 Hyundai Sonata Sport compares to the 2018 Hyundai Sonata Limited.


You can expect these two trims to deliver a similar level of performance. They both come equipped with a strong 2.4-liter, DOHC four-cylinder engine. Hyundai tuned it to develop a healthy 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed Shiftronic automatic transmission helps ensure an especially satisfying performance on the road. Drive Mode Select system comes standard, which allows you to customize the sedan’s level of responsiveness. Activating the Sport mode gives the Sonata an extra measure of driving excitement. There is one key difference between the Sonata Sport and the Sonata Limited. Only the Sonata Sport provides steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.


Whether you prefer the Sonata Sport or the Sonata Limited, your family will be able to travel in complete comfort. Outstanding legroom enables everyone to stretch out. While both trims provide a relaxing ride, the Sonata Sport is designed to appeal to true driving enthusiasts. Its flat-bottom steering wheel will come in handy when carving a twisty back road. Meanwhile, heated sport seats provide an extra layer of warmth. Several high-tech goodies come standard as well, including a touch-screen infotainment system and smartphone integration. Expect the Sonata Limited to feel even more luxurious on the inside. It comes standard with ventilated leather seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. You also have access to several nice options, including wireless smartphone charging and a 400-watt Infinity sound system.


If you desire a sleek and aggressive look, the Sonata Sport will not leave you disappointed. It has the appearance of a genuine sports sedan. Up front, a unique mesh grille highlights the Sonata Sport’s more assertive attitude. The back of the Sonata Sport is just as exciting. It flaunts an eye-catching rear diffuser and a chrome-tipped dual exhaust. Some of the beautiful exterior colors include Quartz White Pearl, Electric Blue, and Scarlet Red. While the Sonata Limited may not look as menacing as the Sonata Sport, its refined appearance will win over a lot of drivers. The luxurious Sonata Limited comes standard with dynamic LED headlamps and LED taillights.

As you can see, both of these Sonata trims bring a lot to the table. While the Sonata Sport will appeal to the drivers who’re looking for just a bit more fun, the Sonata Limited offers top-notch luxury. To see which version of the Sonata fits you the best, call your local Hyundai dealer to schedule a test drive.
