2011 Hyundai Sonata
The Hyundai Sonata is all-new for 2011, dramatically restyled and sporting efficient four-cylinder-only power.
For visual drama, the 6th generation Sonata leaves midsize rivals Camry and Accord in the dust. Along with the 2010 Tuscon, it wears Hyundai’s new “Fluidic Sculpture” design language.
Ripples in the wide chrome grille mimic the upswept bodylines, with chrome accents that originate from behind the large, expressive headlights, and run the length of the Sonata’s curvy flanks.
Wraparound tail lights continue the downward arc of the long, graceful greenhouse.
Compared to its predecessor’s run-of-the-mill styling, this Sonata is a stunner. Its long, low silhouette has more in common with the Mercedes-Benz CLS than with its own big brother Genesis.
The new Sonata’s standard engine is a direct-injected 2.4-liter I-4. Output depends on trim and PZEV status, but tops out at 200 horsepower with dual exhaust.
