The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is a mid-size sedan that offers seven trims. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra is a compact car that's available in six editions. Both of these models offer turbocharged engines and transmission systems with the SHIFTRONIC and EcoShift functions. The Blue Link, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth are some of the high-tech installations in the Sonata and Elantra. Each Hyundai also offers automatic braking and other advanced safety features.


Using traditional natural aspiration for induction, the 2018 Sonata's 2.4 L engine achieves a peak output of 185 horsepower. The Eco is exclusively equipped with a 1.6 L engine that includes a twin-scroll turbocharger. This compact engine is rated at just less than 200 lb-ft of torque. Also powered by a turbocharger with two scrolls, the 2.0 L engine delivers 245 hp. Four of the 2018 Elantra models are propelled by a naturally aspirated 2.0 L engine that offers just under 150 hp. The Eco edition is powered by a 1.4 L turbo engine that has a peak torque output of 156 lb-ft. Additionally, the Sport's 1.6 L turbo engine unleashes slightly more than 200 hp. Optimized for smooth gear changes, the SHIFTRONIC technology is incorporated into the transmission systems of the Sonata and Elantra. Both sedans also offer a dual-clutch transmission that's driven by the EcoShift mechanism.


The Automatic Emergency Braking is available in three of the 2018 Sonata trims. This cutting-edge braking technology is mated to the Pedestrian Detection capability. Several of the Sonata models come with the Lane Departure Warning, which might further prompt the Lane Keep Assist to take action. Rear parking sensors also make this Hyundai sedan a class leader in driving aides. You'll appreciate the Dynamic Bending Light technology that optimizes illumination of curved roads. Extra utility is also provided by the Automatic High Beam Assist. In the 2018 Elantra's lineup, only the Limited has such accident-avoidance technology. Capable of controlling the following distance to another car, the all-new Smart Cruise Control is also optional in the Elantra Limited.
