TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2016 Hyundai Sonata

2016 Hyundai Sonata Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2015 According to the spec sheets, the Ford Fusion has nearly as much combined legroom as the new Sonata, which has an inch more than the old Sonata. But Ford cheats the specs. In reality, the Hyundai's rear seat has a few more inches of rear legroom than the Ford's, and about as much as you'll find in any competitor. Rear headroom is in shorter supply, but (again as in most competitors) should be sufficient for people up to six feet in height. The rear seat cushion is a little too low and level to provide optimal thigh support, but the space to stretch out largely compensates for this. You can get rear air vents to help cool this roomy rear seat, but only on the Limited and Sport 2.0T. see full Hyundai Sonata review
