2015 Hyundai Sonata Interior
The 2015 Sonata features a larger cabin than prior years and high-end materials. The interior design is basic, but functional, and the control layout is smart and easy to use. The optional navigation system upgrades the touchscreen interface to an impressive 8-inch display.
Space is generous, with enough room to comfortably fit four adults, and offers more cargo space in the trunk than average for this segment. Models that are equipped with the hands-free “smart” trunk opener allows the trunk to automatically open if the person with the key fob stands behind the car for more than 3 seconds.

Every 2015 Hyundai Sonata comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and a driver knee airbag. All but the base SE come with a rearview camera and Blue Link, while the Limited and Sport 2.0T come with Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
