2011 HYUNDAI SONATA

The 2011 Hyundai Sonata represents a modern approach to the traditional midsize sedan by using only advanced four-cylinder engines, emotional design and luxury features.
The exterior of the all-new Sonata is long, light and low. The high beltline allows for a long, sleek roofline accented by the third window. The face is bold with a large powerful chrome grille and headlamps that integrate precise details. The stance is completed by 16-, 17- or 18-inch multi-spoke wheels.
The sophisticated look continues inside where Hyundai has created an upscale ambiance thanks to a flow-through center console and instrument panel. These flowing surfaces complement the exterior design and wrap around the driver and passengers.
The new Sonata features Hyundai’s new 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a Gasoline Direct-Injection (GDI) fuel delivery system, which contributes to improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
The horsepower and torque ratings for the Theta II GDI are 198 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. In the SE trim which includes a standard dual exhaust, the engine delivers 200 horsepower. This high-tech, all-aluminum, 16-valve engine features Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing and a Variable Induction System for better engine breathing.
Hyundai’s commitment to making the Sonata extremely fuel efficient continues with a six-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic manual control or a standard six-speed manual transaxle.
Base model estimated mpg: 24/35
Estimated starting price: $19,195
