Base models get 198-hp and a 24 mpg city, 35 mpg highway rating
Hyundai has just announced pricing for the all-new 2011 Sonata, starting at $19,195 for a base GLS sedan with a six-speed manual transmission. The price has climbed from the outgoing model, but just by a models $500 and when you consider what the new model brings, that’s a real bargain.
Along with a beautiful new look and near-luxury interior, the 2011 Sonata gets a new direct-injection 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes an impressive 198-hp and gets 24/35 mpg (city/highway), a segment best for non-hybrids. Models equipped with a six-speed automatic get a 22/35 mpg rating, even the 200-hp SE model with dual exhaust pipes. That model will run you $22,595, and climbs to $25,295 in Limited trim.
Compared to the main competitors, the 2011 Sonata is $200 less than a Camry and almost $2,000 less than a base-model Accord.
