2016 Hyundai Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Perhaps recognizing that some of its models were a just too weird looking to appeal to a broad customer base, Hyundai gave some of its lineup a facelift in 2016. The 2016 Sonata Hybrid got a much more conservative look on the exterior and an interior that could be described as bland. More importantly, changes under the hood brought the 2016 Sonata Hybrid up to 42 mpg combined (from 38 mpg). It has a larger lithium-polymer battery and a 2.0-liter engine (previous models has a 2.4-liter). The 2016 Tuscon, the brand's compact-crossover SUV, also gets an extensive makeover for the model year. It's a bit bigger than previous models and loses some of its distinctive curves. It also gets a slightly smaller, more fuel-efficient 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in some trim models. The base model keeps its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine.
