With a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, you’ll know this sedan has got your back.

Class-exclusive technology begins with the hands-free smart trunk. When your Hyundai Sonata senses the Proximity Key close behind the vehicle, or within three feet for morthan three seconds, expect your trunk to open without lifting a finger.
On the interior, the Hyundai Sonata features a five or eight in touchscreen wit heverything you need, from a navigation system to a rearview camera. With SiriusXM Travel Link® you can search for everything nearby, including grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and other businesses. You can find an ATM, have it tell you the weather and the latest gas prices, and even find the closest theatre with the movie show time you’ve been looking for. How’s that for an organized co-pilot>
Never again will you have to endure embarrassment over your poor parking job with the help of the rearview camera with guidelines to show you where the tight spots are and eliminate the guesswork from backing up.
If you’re ready to adopt the smartest co-pilot there ever was, visit us at Rogers Auto Group for a test drive and we’ll get you going on the road with the best companion.
Here at Rogers Auto Group we’re frequently heard touting the family-friendly merits of the Hyundai Sonata, but that’s often done in terms of fuel-efficiency and standard safety features. Today, we’d like to depart from the norm a bit and share with you a commercial which we humbly believe speaks to the 2015 iteration’s family-friendliness.
Needless to say; dad and daughter are making memories and having a good time together, and some of that fun is being provided by the family-friendly 2015 Sonata.
Of course, as your new Hyundai dealer we could go into the details of the Sonata and we would love to do so at your earliest convenience. Therefore, we welcome you to stop by our showroom in Chicago, IL where our team is happy to discuss vehicle specs, arrange test drives and address any lingering questions that you may have.
For drivers in Glenview, IL who crave a sophisticated sedan that not only exudes style but practicality with a comprehensive set of features at an accessible price point, we here at Rogers Auto Group point them in the direction the Sonata.

Consumer Reports, one of the most trusted resources for consumer information, recently published their annual Top Car Picks, naming the best all-around models in 10 class categories. Their experts tested over 260 vehicles and ranked them using the following criteria:
- Road test: Conducted by Consumer Reports experts
- Reliability: Predicted-reliability rating is based on the problems Consumer Reports subscribers reported on 1.3 million vehicles in the publication’s latest Annual Auto Survey.
- Safety: Data obtained from crash or rollover tests conducted by the government or the insurance industry.
Coming out on top in the “Affordable family sedan” category was the Hyundai Sonata. Consumer reports praised the sedan’s roomy, well-equipped cabin, supple ride, nimble handling, and great gas mileage. Also noted was the Sonata‘s rear-seat space and great rear visibility, even with its sleek coupelike styling.
Another noteworthy winner in Consumer Reports’ Top Picks was the Chevrolet Avalanche in the “Pickup Truck” category. Consumer Reports had rave reviews for this truck, touting that it “provides the best combination of utility and versatility of any pickup we’ve tested.” It’s got a comfortable and quiet ride, with innovative cargo flexibility options.
Consumer Reports’ other 2012 Top Picks were:
Family Sedan: Toyota Camry Hybrid
Sporty Car: Ford Mustang
Small SUV: Toyota RAV4
Family Hauler: Toyota Sienna
Sports Sedan: Infiniti G
Green Car: Toyota Prius
Small Car: Subaru Impreza
Family SUV: Toyota Highlander
The Sonata Hybrid is Hyundai’s first hybrid on the market, with a fuel efficiency rated at 35 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. Any EPA estimated mileage rating, whether for a hybrid or regular car, comes with the standard disclaimer that the actual mileage may vary due to factors including driving conditions, driving habits, vehicle options and more. In a recent cross-country trip in a Sonata Hybrid, professional driver and self-proclaimed “hypermiler” (one who uses techniques to maximize fuel efficiency in cars) Wayne Gerdes showed us how much that estimated mileage can actually vary.
Gerdes’ route spanned from the edge of the Pacific Ocean (San Diego, CA) to the edge of the Atlantic Ocean (Jekyll Island, GA), 2,269 miles crossing over mountains, deserts, the Continental Divide and the Mississippi River. Remarkably, Gerdes completed the trek using only 38 gallons of gas, just under 2 tanks’ worth, reaching an impressive average fuel efficiency of 59.58 miles per gallon.
Gerdes has performed similar extreme efficiency tests with the Ford Fusion and non-hybrid Hyundai Sonata, but he was particularly impressed with the Sonata Hybrid: “This demonstration shows how the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid can deliver extremely impressive fuel economy and range for drivers who value fuel savings. This is the first time I’ve driven a car that ‘does it right!'”
Indeed, Gerdes is a professional with many “hypermiling” tricks up his sleeve, but he nonetheless shows that it’s quite possible to beat the fuel efficiency ratings on a car’s window sticker. Think you can beat his average? Check out the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and try it for yourself!
