I think the 2020 Sonata looks great.

My first purchased car was 1983 Honda Prelude, followed by other Preludes, a Mazda RX-7, an Acura CL and a few Acura TLs.
I joined this forum when I considered an Azera but ended up with a 2014 Mazda6 instead. For 2018, I switched to a Mercedes CLA since Carplay wasn’t offered by Mazda then.

The features offered in the 2020 Sonata doesn’t look like it can be matched by any other carmaker for the price and I miss the creature comforts that I gave up when I got my CLA. My wife doesn’t care for the ride or comfort of the CLA.

I sat in The 2020 Sonata at the NY Auto Show On Friday and it was quite comfortable. Looking forward to take one for a test drive when it becomes available. If I like it, there is a good chance it will become my next car. That is unless I decide to wait for the inevitable more performance oriented Sonata.

Anyone know when there will be a new sub forum here for the 2020 / DN8 Sonata?

As tech toys go, that is correct; nobody can match Sonata 2020 with displays, electronics, safety features, etc.
Button shifter was taken from Accord 2.0T and miserably failed. It looks like afterthought. Where is parking brake??? It is at the left side of driver minuscule button. Good luck if you get sick or pass away while driving with the passengers. They would not be able to stop the car...
I see no changes in engines. Turbo has lower HP than non-turbo. And most likely in order to get all toys, you will have to buy turbo version.

On modern cars, gear shifting is under computer control, including the Sonata LF. You can be driving forward and select Reverse or Park, computer will not oblige because logic forbids. Same vein, if you put paddle shifter in lower gear and force engine to pass redline, computer will upshift automatically to protect engine.

That P button is to Park the car, not to stop the car. When driver passes out, stick shifter or push button selection does same function, no safety advantage either way, I think.

No, what I am talking about is PARKING brake or some people call it Emergency brake. It is located on the left side of the driver instead of the right side close to shifter, where brake hold button is.

The parking brake is on the left hand side for almost all vehicles that are automatic transmission but don't have an electronic parking brake.

To stop the car in the even of your examples, press and hold the Start/Stop button. It will turn the engine off and gradually come to a stop.

I may be in the minority here but I don’t like the 2020. The rear and the steering wheel is ugly. Don’t like push button tranny either.

I drive a 10 Elantra with 110k on it and wife drives a 15 Santa Fe. After I pay off hers in a few months I think I may get me 19 sonata 2.0t. And with everyone going crazy over the 2020 I should be able to get a hella deal on a new 19.

Oddly enough, i thought i really liked the 2020 design at first but after seeing more up close images of it ive discovered i do not like it so much after all.

They also announced the N Line for the Sonata with "at least 275HP". I sure hope they put in an LSD at least or all that wonderful HP will be for roasting tires and not "go fast".

Absolutely NOT. ONLY american garbage cars have LEFT leg parking brake. All normal cars have RIGHT parking brake lever or button.

My Mercedes CLA has the automatic parking brake button on the left side.
