This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Hyundai Sonata (05-10) review.

Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

It hasn’t been crash tested but it does have front and side airbags and the V6 model has traction control. Secuirty is well taken car of and thieves will be after more expensive cars, anyway.

You can’t get an estate version but you do get a usefully big boot and a split-folding rear seat back for carrying longer items.
