Fine Lines for Refined Drives

Ready to get behind the wheel of a sedan that’s fun, luxurious and even a touch sporty? Then you can’t go wrong with the 2020 Hyundai Sonata and the 2020 Hyundai Elantra. But which car is right for you?

Let’s begin by taking a look at their designs. The 2020 Hyundai Elantra packs an aggressive cascading front grille for a powerful look. Throw in the 17-inch alloy wheels, and this sedan sports a regal and contemporary design ready to hit the road.

Then, there’s the 2020 Sonata, which offers a coupe-like design with smooth lines and refined curves throughout for a fine silhouette. You’ll also find hidden lights in the chrome trims that illuminate the road and turn heads as you pass by other drivers. Onlookers will definitely remember your car by the wraparound light bar in the rear that perfectly frames the “H” badge.

Still stuck on which sleek Hyundai sedan you like more? There’s no need to worry, as you can stop by Crown Hyundai in St. Petersburg and take both these rides for a test drive.

Fun, Fast, Smooth and Whatever Else You’re Craving for Your Drives

Take a ride in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, and you’ll experience a spirited drive across St. Petersburg with its standard 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle 4-cylinder engine. 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft torque are all you’ll need for navigating the city and bolting from greenlights. Plus, with an EPA-estimated 41 highway MPG, you won’t need to worry about fuel anytime soon when your adventure begins.

For a sport-themed drive, the available 1.6L Turbo GDI 4-cylinder engine awaits you with 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft torque. That’s power you’ll feel anywhere you drive — from the city streets to dominating I-275 on your drive to Clearwater with instant acceleration.

By comparison, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata also offers a ride you’ll never forget. The base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine packs 191 horsepower and 181 lb-ft torque for all the oomph and power you’ll ever need when cruising the Bay Area.

The 2020 Sonata also throws in an available 9-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®, which allows you to enter manual mode and generate massive acceleration by shifting at your pace.

Which drive is best for you?

When you’re looking to maximize your fuel economy and enjoy a hint of power, a 2020 Hyundai Elantra awaits you. For sporty and responsive drives that come standard, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata has you covered.

Cozy Comfy and Ready to Connect You to the Drive

Upscale looks never feel compromised when you’re cruising in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra. Start with its available sporty seats that hug you just right and are effortless to clean. Add in the available sport trim stitching, and there’s no doubt you’ll drive one of the sleekest sedans on the block.

Move to the rear, and you’ll find 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space for storing your sports bags, luggage, golf clubs, groceries and plenty more.

For connecting to your media, the 2020 Elantra delivers a standard five-inch display, while models up to eight inches with display and navigation are available. Just imagine all the tasty new restaurants you’ll discover around Palm Harbor and Tampa to feed your inner foodie with turn-by-turn directions at your command.

While you get there, jam out to your new favorite song, respond to urgent texts hands-free, and load your favorite phone apps with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Compare to the 2020 Hyundai Sonata, where you’ll find luxury throughout the interior. Even for seating surfaces, choose from leather or Dinamica® Suede with leather for complete refinement.

Along with good looks, those seats can also bring comfort with available heated and ventilated functions in the front. Even the most humid Florida days won’t stop your commutes. It’s perfect for when you need to commute to places like Clearwater for an important meetup/work event.

For entertainment and connectivity, an eight-inch touchscreen featuring Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is ready to guide your drives. Upgrade to the available largest-in-class 10.25-inch color touchscreen with navigation to help you navigate around traffic and find the fastest routes to new adventures.

Which interior should you pick? The 2020 Hyundai Elantra offers a flexible interior with most available features you’ll ever need for your drives to cater to your style and comfort needs. Meanwhile, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata doesn’t pull any shortcuts when it comes to luxury. There’s no wrong answer when you choose an upscale Hyundai sedan.

Fun Drives Stay Safe and Easy with Hyundai SmartSense

Whichever Hyundai sedan you choose to drive, you’ll have a secure and safe trip with standard safety features in the Hyundai SmartSense driver-assist suite.

When you’re cruising I-275, your Hyundai’s ready for anything with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA). The moment a collision seems imminent with stopped cars or obstructions ahead, your Hyundai sends you an alert to brake or move out of the way. If you don’t take action, this system hits the brakes for you to mitigate, or even avoid, a fender bender.

Feeling drowsy for those long drives? Your Hyundai sedan monitors your habits and lets you know when it’s a good time to take a break with Driver Attention Warning (DAW). Then, you can refocus, and hit the road with full attention on the drive ahead.

During your drives, stay in your lane with ease with Lane Keeping Assist (LKA). The moment you unintentionally veer out of your lane, you’ll feel subtle steering inputs to help you re-center and avoid side collisions.
