2011 Hyundai Sonata
2011 Hyundai Sonata
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.

It's fair to say that we were surprised by the Hyundai Sonata. Granted, the previous Sonata was a competent offering, but it was not exactly a standout. With the new Sonata, however, staff members suddenly started tossing around phrases like "best-in-class." Against such stalwart competitors as the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry -- and solid challengers like the Nissan Altima, the Ford Fusion, and the Chevrolet Malibu -- that was a very big claim. The best way to find out for sure whether the Sonata was deserving of such enthusiasm was to spend a year with one in a Four Seasons test.

While Hyundai may have found sales success with the 2011 Sonata, some owners have been reporting an issue with their vehicles constantly pulling left and the automaker has now issued a service bulletin to address the issue. Hyundai stresses this is not a full recall, and it appears the company is trying to be proactive in addressing this issue before it needs a full recall.

Once a venerable nameplate in the midsize sedan segment, Toyota is at risk of losing its sales-king crown to Korean automaker Hyundai. According to Bloomberg, Toyota sales stand to suffer unless the new 2012 Camry can steal back market share from the Hyundai Sonata.

That the Sonata has been a runaway success for Hyundai is no secret. Annual sales are on pace to exceed 200,000 units this year, placing the Sonata among the most popular vehicles on the market, and it's a 2011 Automobile Magazine All-Star. On top of that, we are currently about to wrap up a successful Four Seasons test of a 200-hp four-cylinder Sonata SE, which has proven to be a staff favorite. As further testament to its popularity, the Sonata is ubiquitous on the streets of Ann Arbor. In fact, as I write, I can see a Sonata parallel parking on Liberty Street just outside my office window.
