Recently a few snap shots taken during the 2011 Hyundai Sonata’s official photo shoot were leaked onto the interweb, and now the same seems to have happened to a selection of some of the official images.
These four images show a four door coupe design that is most certainly in keeping with what Hyundai PR folks had suggested. With the 2011 Sonata, Hyundai is making a push to supplant the mainstream Japanese competitors from Honda and Toyota by offering a competitive vehicle that also has plenty of style.
These images also give us our best look yet at the dash of the Sonata, which has a Lexus-like quality to it.
There is no official word on specifications for the new model, but there are rumors of a direct-injection 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 200hp. We also expect a V6 for the North American market.
The 2011 Sonata will debut next month in Korea with a U.S. debut most likely at either the L.A. Auto Show or the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
