2011 Hyundai Sonata Power
When it comes to the engines, you can find 2011 Sonatas equipped with either a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine or a 2.0 turbo charged engine. A majority of people will really be fine with the base 2.4 liter, which puts out a hefty 198 horsepower. As far as gas mileage is concerned, it gets a descent 26 mpg. Part of achieving this number is due to being paired with its six speed transmission. Altogether, the car is pretty responsive, which is great when on the highway and needing some power to pass someone. However for anyone looking to take things up a notch, going with the 2.0 liter turbo will get an extra 75 horsepower over the base engine. Despite the higher horsepower, it still produces relatively the same miles per gallon as the base engine.
As far as the design is concerned, the Sonata is roomy enough to be considered as a large sedan. For the 2011 year, the Sonata is equipped with a lot of improvements. To start, the driving has changed significantly where it is more responsive and comfortable for drivers. While it may not be to the standards of a sport sedan it’s still fine tuned for a much better driving experience than previous versions.
If there is one thing that really stands out about the Sonata, it’s the overall value that the car has. There are a variety of features that are standard including satellite radio, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity. Compared to other models, many of them didn’t offer these features or were available for an extra cost. Already available at a slightly lower price point, this makes the Sonata not only a very cost effective car but comes with a lot of features that would cost significantly more in more recent models.
With three trim levels, the GLS, SE and Limited, each will vary on some of the functionality and other features that are offered. Going with the GLS will get you keyless entry, cruise control and heated side mirrors. Going with the SE will get you leather seats, 18 inch alloy tires and a sport-tuned suspension. Anything in addition to this would be added on from the two optional packages that were available which would include everything from navigation to high end speakers.
Besides being nearly loaded with features that come standard, it’s clear that the 2011 Hyundai Sonata is one of the best value priced sedans on the market today. In addition to its value, it has also received a top five star rating for safety. Between, front, side and roof strength protection, the Sonata was rewarded “Good” from the IIHS. In breaking tests the car also did slightly better than many other in its class too. Overall, when looking for a reliable mid to full sized sedan the 2011 Hyundai Sonata is going to be one of the best choices when it comes to dependability, safety and overall value.
