What used to be a nearly non-existent, unpopular brand — Hyundai — is charting its way to the top. And the 2011 Sonata is helping the company get there. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is “tackling mainstream sales leaders Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry” according to So what makes this rockin’ new vehicle so special? “There’s no middle man with the new GDI (gas direct injection) technology, which creates better performance … gaining 25 horsepower over previous model and maintaining 35 miles per gallon,” sales associate and friend Chuck Childress said. “The Hyundai’s new design language … with aggressive curves and a ‘waterfall grill’ definitely makes this 4-door coupe stand out.” When compared to the models in its category, the Hyundai Sonata is less money, a better warranty, and the same, if not better, reliability. This vehicle starts as low as $19,977 and reaches $28,000 for the limited edition, which by the way has heated back seats. Love that! And the SE (Sports Edition) Model is super slick with 200 horsepower, dual chrome exhaust, paddle shifters, 18-inch wheels and a leather and cloth combo interior.
