Hyundai strives to set itself apart in the sedan market in 2010, with green marketing, and complete redesigns. The 2011 Sonata, which comes in three different flavors, is a contender in the mid-size sedan market with bold styling and green engine technology. Claiming to destroy the mold that most sedans have been made from, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata breathes renewed spirit into the niche, offered in GLS, SE, and Limited editions.
As anyone with a family will attest, safety in a vehicle becomes priority one, and tops the list of standard features found in the Sonata. For example, the 2011 Sonata comes equipped with electronic stability control, which enables drivers to carefully out maneuver any obstacles on the road. What better way to protect passengers than to avoid the accident in the first place? But when the worst happens, the 2011 Sonata’s reinforced unibody design coupled with advanced front airbags makes for the safest family car on the road.
Outside, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata looks like a much more powerful vehicle than it really is and camouflages it’s ability to be a fuel efficient car capable of seating five. Underneath the hood the Sonata comes equipped with a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder, which is capable of 200 horsepower. Despite the big power numbers from a small engine, the 2011 Sonata is also capable of delivering a staggering 35 miles per gallon. Thanks to fuel efficient technology like ‘Continuously Variable Valve Timing’ and even sport tuned suspension allows the 2011 Sonata to meet Ultra Low Emission Vehicle standards.
All work and no play makes Sonata a dull boy, that’s why Hyundai thought well enough to equip the 2011 with fun features like 400 watt Infinity sound system. Hard to believe but the sun roof even comes as standard equipment on the SE and Limited editions of the SE. For the thrill of driving a high end car, Hyundai even equipped the 2011 Sonata with push button start, that is capable of sensing if the keys are in your pocket.
The interior of the Sonata appears luxurious, with ergonomic engineering and design that makes the car appear to be much more expensive than the $19,000 price tag. Hyundai Sonata drivers will be fortunate to set in comfortable seats, designed by special Seat Engineers. Drivers also have access to a whole host of technological goodies like Dual Climate Control, rearview camera, navigation system, HOMELINK, and even an iPod Jack as standard. The new 2011 Hyundai Sonata is a family sedan worthy of Bill Gates at a price we can all afford.
