The 2016 Hyundai Sonata has a reputation as a sensible mid-sized sedan, something practical and safe, but with a lot of unexpected and delightful surprises! It’s very much like Atlanta, Georgia, right? When someone comes to visit, it looks like an everyday metropolitan center, but it’s here to delight and surprise with the unexpected around every turn! So really, what better car to take for a leisurely day-trip through the city?
Just to make sure I wasn’t making stuff up, I spoke with the team at the premier Hyundai dealership in Atlanta to get their thoughts on the 2016 Hyundai Sonata. They were a bit more pragmatic about the whole process, and wanted me to make sure that people knew that Hyundai of Athens has one of the biggest selections of not just new and certified pre-owned Hyundai’s; but that if you’re considering a new 2016 Hyundai Sonata they make it even easier with a ‘find my car’ section right on the website! BUT, that just got off topic…here’s three of the most delightful things I found out about this fair city that I think makes the 2016 Hyundai Sonata such a great match for it;
They Do Things Their Way
I’m talking about how much they love the Georgia Bulldogs, and how much this love spills out into everything they do – including how the word ‘dog’ is spelled…everywhere. Every business place with the word dog in its title spells it D-A-W-G. Every ad, yard sign and window display you see in Athens proudly touts the word ‘dawg’ by default.
The 2016 Hyundai Sonata doesn’t care that it’s supposed to be a sensible ride, it proudly features either 178 or 245 HP depending on the engine, which comes in 1.6L 4-cylinder, 2.0L 4-cylinder, 2.4L 4-cylinder. At this point, sensibility is out the door and driving excitement rolls right in.
Athens Loves Well Crafted Brews
Surprisingly, for a Southern state that one would expect Bourbon to win the stage in, Athens has a pretty extensive craft beer scene with many local breweries, brewpubs and watering holes for artisan beer lovers.
The 2016 Hyundai Sonata isn’t a big fan of doing more than sipping gas at a conservative pace of 28 city, 38 highway MPG’s, but it LOVES the fact that you have a buddy that will be your designated driver while you enjoy some of these well-crafted selections of brews.
Traffic Doesn’t Scare It
According to the locals, “The major roadways leading into downtown and the Five Points neighborhood are like drag racing strips until everything gets backed up closer to town. If you drive through Five Points most anytime of day, you’ll wait through a few cycles of traffic signals before passing through.”
Luckily, in the 2016 Hyundai Sonata, you get a spacious interior, a 7-inch color touchscreen audio system with the Android Auto smartphone interface, and electric power steering that will help you stay on track effortlessly.
If you’re ready to make the move into the best car for Athens, schedule your test drive online at Hyundai of Athens and see what a great fit the 2016 Hyundai Sonata is for your town!
