Hyundai was one of the first brands officially announced as a CarPlay partner back in 2014, and the feature is now available across pretty much all of the carmaker’s lineup. I recently spent some time with CarPlay and Hyundai’s native infotainment system in the redesigned 2020 Hyundai Sonata, and I’ve been impressed with not only Hyundai’s CarPlay implementation but also just how much technology in general Hyundai has managed to include in the Sonata for its price.
The 2020 Sonata starts at $23,600 and is available in four trim levels, topping out with the Limited trim at nearly $34,000 plus destination charges. My test vehicle was the high-end Limited trim, which comes with all of the bells and whistles Hyundai offers without any additional packages needed, with the exception of a $300 upcharge for the Quartz White paint and optional accessories like floor mats and cargo customization. A traditional hybrid version of the redesigned Sonata with an available solar-panel roof should be available in the coming months.
