2015 Hyundai Sonata
The mid-size sedan segment has changed an awful lot since the Sonata placed fourth in a six-car comparison test two years ago. Models from Ford, Honda, Mazda, and Nissan have jumped to the top of the pile, leaving Hyundai’s second-bestselling model in their wake. Yet Sonata sales remained strong, trailing only the Accord, Altima, Camry, and Fusion last year. As such, Hyundai finds itself in a position to establish the Sonata as a genuine threat to the established order of family sedans.
