As rising sales of crossovers continue to pull buyers from middle-of-the-road sedans, automakers are scrambling to make their high-volume, mainstream cars a little less, well, boring.
Or at least more affordable.

Hyundai Motor Co. is beefing up its Sonata just a year after the car was redesigned. For 2016, all trim levels are expected to come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, giving buyers a tight integration between the car's infotainment system and their smartphones.
