The Hyundai Sonata has a totally new package ready for roll out in the 2011 model. This very slick looking sport sedan has a lot of potential and offers some very big changes compared to last year's model. The Sonata brings a very fluid sculpting and liquid look and design to the rich lineup from Hyundai. The Sonata does not offer a 6 cylinder option in the engine this year, but there is still plenty of horsepower offered from the other 4 cylinder engines ready to go in this model. The 2.4 liter 4 cylinder takes advantage of direct injection to offer 198 horsepower and 184 foot pounds of torque which in this smaller sedan is more than generous.There is also a turbo charged option that brings the total horsepower to 274 and boosts the torque up to 269 foot pounds. This engine is very strong performer and offers a serious amount of acceleration in the Sonata sedan. As far as transmissions go, the consumer has a choice between a six speed manual or a six speed automatic. The 2011 Sonata offer a longer wheelbase than earlier models which is also slightly wider.
