The 2011 Hyundai Sonata will be the first vehicle to debut the Korean automaker's "Fluidic Sculpture" design language.
The Sonata will be available in three trim levels: an entry level GLS model, a performance oriented SE, and the luxury trim Limited.
All trim levels will be powered by the same single-option 2.4-liter direct-injection gasoline engine making 198 horsepower. However, the SE trim gets a bump up to an even 200 ponies.
Bulbous and curvy, the Sonata's aesthetic is an acquired taste. At the very least, it's more visually stimulating than the Camry.
Inside, the Sonata is as attractive as its larger sibling, the Genesis sedan.
A flash-memory-based navigation system is available at all trim levels and reads its data from 8GB of internal memory.
A new HVAC control scheme aims to make climate controls more intuitive, meanwhile an offset shifter hints at a driver-oriented cockpit.
A premium Dimension audio system is standard in the Sonata Limited and optional for the GLS and SE models. Additionally, a 400-watt Infinity audio system is an option for the Limited trim.
Although the Sonata will debut with the 2.4-liter engine as the sole option, a 2.0-liter turbocharged mill and a Blue Hybrid Drive model will be available by late 2010.
