2012 Hyundai Sonata: Exceptional Value

Unlike other famous models, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata is one that needs an introduction. There was a time when the Sonata lineup fell to the sideline and was considered the wallflower of the Hyundai brand. But last year, in 2011, that wallflower bloomed when the model underwent a complete redesign, and now, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata continues that great tradition. What sets the 2012 Hyundai Sonata apart from the crowd of other auto maker brands is its unusual blend of curves and crests sets that gives it an exciting aura all its own. In all honesty, when you look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata now, it truly looks like something from the future, breaking away from the standard design philosophy of Hyundai’s past styling. For instance, across the tail and the back of the roofline is clearly some sort of a design tribute to the Audi A6.

Every Sonata is equipped with a four cylinder engine, with the general market models fitted with 2.4 liters of up to 200 horsepower, a choice of either an automatic or manual six-speed transmission, and direct injection. If anything, the former is excellent and feels perfect, just about, for its class. The gear changer is responsive and feels very smooth.

For a midsize car, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata clocks in at a whopping 35 mpg of highway mileage, leaving its competitors in the dust. Simply put, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata is as stylish as it is economic.

The 2012 Hyundai Sonata offers exceptional value for any driver who is on the market for a midsize car. You would do good to give it a test drive.
