The 2010 Hyundai Sonata is a midsize, front-engine, mainstream family sedan with a traditional notchback trunk. It is sold in eight iterations: GLS, GLS PZEV, SE, SE PZEV, Limited, Limited PZEV, Limited V-6. There are seats for five people. Luggage capacity is a very decent 16.3 cubic feet. The new Hyundai Sonata delivers powerful performance through its 2-liter Theta II MPi gasoline engine (Max output 165ps, Max torque of 20.2?·m). Delivering fuel economy at 12.8 kilometers per liter, fuel economy is more than 11% improved compared with today’s Sonata. Furthermore, all engines are offered with a new six-speed automatic transmission for heightened performance. The new Sonata comes with a three-piece panoramic sunroof, giving a sense of openness and freedom as well as a stylish look. The Parking Guide System (PGS) allows drivers to avoid obstacles during parallel parking or when driving in reverse.
In addition, Hyundai plans to present the gasoline version in January next year with a 2.4 liter Theta II GDI engine, which will be offered as a standard engine in the U.S. market. The base price on the 2010 base (SE) Hyundai Sonata with optional five-speed automatic transmission is $22,050.
