4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.0L I4 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

Why the 2011 Hyundai Sonata?


The SE Turbo Sonata out handles and powers most cars and all in it's class. It has a sport-tuned suspension and steering system ONLY on the SE's and deleted on Limiteds. I also drive a 370Z Nissan and it handles much like it, honestly. 30mpg avg.

Exterior styling

It's gorgeous! The 18inch wheels and body shape make it really stand out. MANY people stop and comment on it. Friends and coworkers stand and gawk at it, even the Mercedes and Lexus drivers. I'm often told it looks "wicked", "hot",

Interior styling

The 2012 Camry and Accord have interiors way out of date in comparison. Some say here it is "too complex" or "spaceship like" but that's no prob once you learn the car. Black or wine interior is best and the sport seats are amazingly c

Warranty, maintenance cost

10yr/100,000m power train warranty, 5yr/60,000m bumper to bumper warranty, 7yr/unlimited mile anti-perforation warranty (2 more yrs than Toyota or Honda and 1 more than Lexus!) 5yr/unlimited roadside assistance (ZERO for Toyota/Honda, 1 more than Lexus)

Feature availability

LOADED with ALL the bells and whistles you'd pay A LOT extra for on it's competitors. Nissan, Honda and Toyota make you add pricey package after package for what comes standard here. To be fair, to get the sunroof, you HAVE to add the NAV pack.
