Hyundai announces pricing for the All-New 2011 Sonata - [W/ new images]

2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.4 GDI

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. : February 1, 2010 - Hyundai Motor America has announced prices for the all-new 2011 Sonata. The completely redesigned 2011 Sonata delivers best-in-class fuel economy, an EPA-designated Large Car interior, 198 horsepower and a starting price of $19,195 for the well-equipped GLS model. The 200-horsepower SE model starts at $22,595 and the top-of-the-line Limited model is available for $25,295.

“With the 2011 Sonata, our focus was a no-compromise engineering approach that would allow Sonata owners to have their cake, and eat it too. That focus led to a set of attributes that have not been seen in the midsize car category – attributes such as 35 mpg and 200 horsepower, bold design and an EPA Large Car interior, world-class quality and a class-leading value position” said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO. “At Hyundai, we’re big fans of resetting conventional wisdom, and we think we may have done it here with the 2011 Sonata.”

Hyundai is the most fuel-efficient car maker in the U.S., and its commitment to continued fuel economy leadership is evident in the all-new Sonata. It has a best-in-class 35 mpg highway fuel economy rating thanks to a new 2.4-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) four-cylinder engine, new six-speed manual and automatic transmissions and highly refined aerodynamics. In addition to the advancements in fuel economy, the GDI engine produces a standard 198 horsepower, surpassing Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu and Ford Fusion. The Sonata GLS manual has best-in-class overall fuel economy with a 24 mpg city/35 mpg highway fuel economy rating, with all other Sonata models achieving 22 mpg city/35 mpg highway.

The all-new Sonata raises the bar when it comes to features and technology offered within the midsize car segment. In addition to standard XM Satellite® radio, the Sonata boasts segment-first standard Bluetooth® hands-free phone system, available HD Radio Technology™ with multicasting (allowing the broadcast of alternative side-band content on HD stations) and heated front and rear heated seats. The Sonata is the first vehicle in its segment with advanced touchscreen navigation available on all trim levels. At $22,645, the Sonata GLS with the Popular Equipment Package + Navigation is the lowest priced midsize sedan with navigation. All navigation systems also include a 90-day complimentary subscription to real-time XM NavTraffic®, XM NavWeather®, XM Sports Ticker and XM Stock Ticker.

The 2006 Sonata was the first popular midsize car to offer standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and six airbags. The 2011 Sonata builds on this leadership, with exceptional standard safety features including front driver and passenger airbags, front seat side impact and curtain airbags, ESC and Traction Control System (TCS), Antilock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), front active head restraints, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system.

While Sonata will compete for customers against cars like Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima and Chevrolet Malibu, Sonata’s performance capabilities, craftsmanship standards and luxury features were benchmarked against vehicles from Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. In true Hyundai fashion, Sonata makes a premium driving experience accessible to a wide range of customers, delivering the kind of value equation American car buyers have come to expect from Hyundai.
