CLEVELAND--More Hyundai’s are out on the road this month than the entire month of February thanks to the Cleveland Auto Show.  The most popular Hyundai is the 2015 Sonata which is decked out with safety features and blue tooth technology.

When it comes to comfort, safety, interior space and technology it’s hard to beat the 2015 Hyundai Sonata.

“It’s so adjustable," said Carolyn Andrzejewski of Macedonia. "I think just about anybody could drive it, you can see everything, I like all the big windows, you can see good.”

The Sonata is by far Hyundai’s most popular vehicle, thanks to the five-star safety rating and it’s near perfect review on Edmund’s, a well known automotive resource website.

“It’s great on gas, it looks great, it drives great, it’s front wheel drive, it handles well in the snow, it’s a no brainer, the Hyundai Sonata is the car,” said Jason Herron, General Manager of Ron Marhofer Hyundai.

Just like every other vehicle you see here at the Auto Show the Hyundai has it’s own technology, it’s own smartphone technology called Blue Link.

“What you can do, you can set the temperature on your iPhone to your car when you start it and when you get to your car you have the air condition on, you have the heat on, it’s perfect,” Herron said.

Blue Link also has its own navigation system that works hand-in-hand with your smartphone.

“If you’re with your friends and meeting at the movies or a place you don’t know you can punch in the address in your phone send it to your car, get in your car and just go and the car will know exactly where you are going,” said Herron.

The Sonata also has class-leading safety features like the standard blind spot detection.

“If you’re going down the highway and you want to make a left and it’s in a blind spot you hit the turn signal, the mirror will flash and it will send out a signal to you via audio and visual that someone is to your left so you don’t make the turn," Herron said.

Hyundai is already excited about what they have and where they are headed.  They car maker already debuted the Santa Cruz Crossover truck concept earlier this year and it too will be making its way to showrooms in the near future.

“It’s going to be a crossover," said Herron. "It’s going to drive like a car but be built like a truck and it’s coming real soon and it’s one of those things that is for everybody.”
