Excellent Warranty

Both Hyundai and Volkswagen keep drivers protected with warranties that far surpass others in the same segment. But only Hyundai boasts America's Best Warranty, with:

  • 10 year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty
  • 5 year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty
  • 5 year/unlimited miles 24/7 roadside assistance

Stay Connected

Drivers today crave technology, especially features that keep us connected while we're on the move. Both the Sonata and Passat are packed with entertainment controls such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, displayed on brilliant touchscreens. But only the Sonata ensures you'll never lose connection, thanks to built-in wireless device charging and front and second-row USB charging, keeping your music, podcasts, and directions playing for the entire duration of your trip.

Total Control

Modern vehicles are more connected than ever before, but the Hyundai Sonata is taking it a step further, allowing you to control your vehicle from your favorite devices or even your voice. When you purchase a new Sonata, you'll receive 3 years of complimentary Blue Link Connected Car Service, which connects your car to all your personal electronics, including your smartphone, smartwatch, Amazon Echo, and Google Home. This innovative feature will allow you to:

  • Start your engine
  • Adjust climate control
  • Schedule maintenance
  • Help find stolen vehicle
  • Use destination search

While the Passat has a similar feature, it is by paid subscription only.
