A-List Rides: Taking On Atlanta In The Hyundai Sonata SEL

I was in Atlanta for Isaac Carree’s The Plug conference and an appearance on the nationally syndicated daytime talk show “Sister Circle Live” and needed a car to get me around time. So I was set up in an electric blue 2018 Hyundai Sonata SEL and it was my chariot during this busy ATL business trip.

Atlanta has some of worst traffic in America and depending on where you are going, it’s hard to avoid. So thank God the Hyundai Sonata SEL was a comfortable vehicle, as tackling congestion on the highways is so much less bearable when you’re not comfortable in your whip.

The Hyundai Sonata SEL was great on gas. I drove all over Atlanta – from the airport to Decatur, downtown to Buckhead – and I never once had to refill the gas tank. And the car was spacious for my luggage in the trunk. But also, the day that I had to do TV, the hotel gave me this oversized umbrella because it was raining so hard and it fit perfectly on the back seat of the vehicle.

The Hyundai Sonata SEL offered great acceleration and had a powerful drive. It gripped the road and I felt safe on some of the twisty, turning back roads in Atlanta that Waze sometimes had me use.

This full size vehicle, which was completely redesigned for this 2018 model, was sensible, practical and made my commute around Atlanta a very easy one.

So check out my inside look into the 2018 Hyundai Sonata SEL and determine whether it’s automobile that meets your needs.

Spin Control: With a price point that ranges from $22,050 to $32,450 based on how you upgrade the offerings of the vehicle, the Hyundai Sonata is a car you can make work for both your financial and vehicle function needs.
