[hana-code-insert name=’adsense’ /]A New Hyundai Sonata ready as a 2011 model, reminds you a lot of European sedans – Mercedes CLS par example.
Short rear decks are the trend these years, and Hyundai went along with that. he design language was described by product planning director Scott Margason as “Fluidic Sculpture.” It’s not an entirely unique direction or concept as we head into 2010, but it does seem very well executed on this sedan. Starting at the grille, the Sonata gets a stylized three-bar look, just like Ford these days,
Available trimsfor the 2011 Hyundai Soanta are: GLS, Limited and SE. SE is meant to be an option for sports trim fans out there. Overall dimensions of the new YF Sonata are virtually the same as that of the model it is replacing. The biggest difference is in overall length (where it is less than an inch longer) and the wheelbase, which has grown by 2.6 inches to 110 inches. In spite of that sloping greenhouse, the YF only loses 0.4 inches of rear headroom as compared to the current model.
Hyundai is among the companies that embraces quickly new technologies and materials, and that’s probably why the new Sonata is lighter with 130 pounds than the previous model.
Fuel economy: Final EPA numbers aren’t in yet, but Hyundai estimates that the Sonata will be rated at 23 mpg city and 35 mpg highway compared to the 22/32 mpg of the 2010 model. That would also beat all of the Sonata’s major non-hybrid competitors by 1-to-4 mpg on the highway.
