2018 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2017 Nissan Altima Comparison in Concord, NC


While the Nissan Altima is a sneaky choice as one of the more affordable midsized sedans on the market, the base level Sonata still comes in at a lower price, all while offering several other advantages as you'll see below. The Altima is a pretty bland sedan, making its name known for rentals and company cars, while the Sonata has a unique and fun personality, with the features and specs that make it the clear winner when stacked up to the Nissan offering.

  • Along with the lower starting price, the new Sonata, like our other Hyundai models, comes with a unbeatable warranty protection plan, offering coverage for more miles or years than what Nissan provides with the new Altima. You shouldn't have to worry about your new Sonata dealing with issues right out of the gate, but this warranty plan will ease your mind in that regard.
  • Without losing much in terms of fuel efficiency, you'll enjoy the slight advantage the Sonata has when it comes to its base four-cylinder performance output, which delivers 185 horsepower, compared to 179 hp for the Altima.
  • Comfort is key when it comes to a family sedan, and the Sonata has an overall more spacious cabin than the Altima, including a significant advantage in terms of front shoulder and leg room.

2018 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2018 Toyota Camry Comparison in Concord, NC


The Toyota Camry has long boasted being the top-selling midsized sedan, and even the most loyal Hyundai drivers would assume that can't be beat by the likes of the Sonata. Sure, the Camry offers better performance and efficiency in its latest setup, but a quality everyday family sedan is about so much more, and you might be surprised to see how the Sonata compares to the popular Toyota option.



  • The amount you'll save by choosing the Sonata in any trim compared to similar editions of the Camry represents far more value, giving you more options to upgrade and add features as you see fit. Additionally, the Sonata includes a far more comprehensive warranty plan, and even adds roadside assistance, which isn't offered with the Camry.
  • Comfort and convenience are key, and larger trunk area and the fold-down, pass-through rear seats in the Sonata aren't offered in the Camry. You'll find that passenger space similarly is larger in the Sonata when compared to the Camry.
  • Another important quality in any vehicle is safety, where the Sonata gets a slight edge over the Camry. Hyundai's midsized sedan earned five of five stars in the crucial overall frontal crash rating, compared to only four stars for the Camry.

2018 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2017 Honda Accord Comparison in Concord, NC


If the new Camry is the top-selling midsized sedan, the new Honda Accord can't be far behind. This is yet another sedan that seems like the obvious choice to be the top pick, but a closer look at what the Sonata offers will be a pleasant surprise. Once again, total cost, warranty offerings and other factors make the new Sonata the better choice, and you can see below how Hyundai bests the Accord when it comes to offering a high-quality four-door.

  • The basic, powertrain and corrosion / rust thru warranty coverage for the Sonata are all more comprehensive than similar protection plans for the Accord. Additionally, Hyundai offers roadside assistance and a non-transferable powertrain warranty, both of which aren't available with the Accord.
  • Once again, the Sonata is the more spacious sedan, offering more comfort for passengers and more space for cargo in the trunk area.
  • Additionally, the Sonata bests the Accord when it comes to the overall frontal crash rating, meaning in the event of a collision, you and your passengers will be better protected.
