We spend a week with Android Auto in the 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Our verdict? It fulfills the promise of the technology. Here's how.


Hyundai is the first automaker to launch the Android Auto operating system on a production vehicle. The software is available on the 2015 Sonata and mirrors a smartphone's interface on the sedan's infotainment screen.


Late To The Party, But Makes Quite An Entrance

After taking the 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid prototype out for a short drive, we learn that you don't have to be first to be cool.


Rumor has it that Hyundai is going to add a third vehicle at its Montgomery, AL factory to accommodate an SUV or CUV.


Despite only being on the market for a few months, Hyundai is already reportedly considering a major redesign of the latest Sonata. While demand is growing, the automaker wants the model to sell even better. The changes in the look of the Korean sedan would be timed with the model's refresh in 2017 or 2018.


The all-new 2016 Sonata Hybrid comes in two flavors, standard and PHEV, which offers a decent 22-mile EV range.

How else could we explain the scene you see above, in which there exists a 708-horsepower front-wheel-drive Sonata tuned by Bisimoto (black and white, above left) powered by Hyundai's 2.4-liter Theta II engine? Or the little red number you see hiding in the background, which, at an even 1,000 horsepower, is "the most-powerful 2.0-liter Genesis Coupe ever built," says Hyundai?


"But so far, Sonata sales are up compared with last year even while we're still ramping up to full speed." – Jim Trainor


For the past two years at the SEMA show, the folks at Bisimoto Engineering have taken one of Hyundai's models and tuned it up to levels of power previously unimaginable. It started in 2012 with a 600-horsepower Elantra GT, and they outdid themselves last year with a 1,000-hp Genesis Coupe. This year Bisimoto's tuners are teasing their latest wild creation by starting with a normal 2015 Sonata and turning the wick up to 708 hp thanks to a long list of engine mods.


The Dude abides, but his deep voice is going to be coming from your TV a little less.

He has been replaced by comedian Paul Rudd who is already narrating the new commercial for the 2015 Hyundai Sonata.


General Motors is the undisputed king of recalls for 2014. No one is going to contest this point. The American company is far from the only one with vehicles that need fixing, though, as Hyundai has announced another recall totaling 419,000 vehicles in three separate campaigns.
