Used Hyundai Sonata (2005 - 2010) Buying & Selling

The Sonata is Hyundai's attempt at a relatively upmarket four-door saloon, but aside from decent equipment levels and a comfortable ride, there's little to recommend it. The anonymous styling along with a cheap feeling interior and forgettable driving experience mean it isn't a desirable choice.

Buying used

A second hand Sonata is a far safer bet than buying new as the steepest part of the depreciation has hit someone else. It comes with a five-year warranty which isn't limited by mileage constraints and this can be transferred onto subsequent owners. Avoid the V6 petrol (it is far too thirsty) and aim for a 2.0-litre model.

Hyundai isn't the most glamorous badge, although if you focus on the equipment and the space as selling points, you should generate some interest. It's not an obvious choice for many though, so you may struggle to move it quickly. Don't forget that the warranty can be transferred onto to a new owner.
