2011 Hyundai Sonata US Pricing Released

Hyundai’s North American division had just released pricing information for the 2011 Sonata, which is available in three trim levels in the US market. Getting straight to the point, the new Sonata has a a starting price of $19,195, but the freight charge of $720 is not included in the MSRP.

The sixth generation Hyundai Sonata comes equipped with Hyundai’s new Theta II 2.4-liter gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine and in-house six-speed automatic transmission, developing 198 horsepower standard and 200 horsepower on the SE trim. This allows the car to deliver a fuel economy of 24 mpg city/35 mpg highway, which Hyundai says is the best in its class.

"With the 2011 Sonata, our focus was a no-compromise engineering approach that would allow Sonata owners to have their cake, and eat it too. That focus led to a set of attributes that have not been seen in the midsize car category – attributes such as 35 mpg and 200 horsepower, bold design and an EPA Large Car interior, world-class quality and a class-leading value position," John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO, said in a release. "At Hyundai, we're big fans of resetting conventional wisdom, and we think we may have done it here with the 2011 Sonata."
