Thanks to a few careless Hyundai employees who left their test mule sitting around unattended in Dubai, we have these photos of what is reportedly the 2011 Sonata. Taken by Autoblog reader Sammy_R-Gti while on vacation in Dubai this is easily our best look yet at a vehicle that, given Hyundai’s recent successes, is sure to be a serious competitor in the mid-sized sedan segment.
From the side and rear the car look more like a Chevy Malibu although there are hints of the Lexus ES350. The front, however, is much more dramatic than either of those vehicles and even resembles a Mercedes. It also appears as though the car will get a more distinguishable three-bar front grille, like the one found on the Genesis sedan.
