2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo Priced From $24,145
Hyundai has just announced the new 2011 Sonata 2.0T model will start at just $24,145, delivering V6 power and impressive 4-cylinder fuel economy thanks to a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.

“When we first showed the Sonata Turbo earlier this year, we promised more horsepower than our V6 competitors, with great four-cylinder fuel economy, all for under $25,000,” said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO. “With the introduction of the Sonata 2.0T, we’re delivering on all three of those commitments, with an MSRP of just $24,145 for an incredibly well-equipped Sonata 2.0T SE.

The SE trim includes 18-inch wheels, a “sport-tuned” suspension and steering, push button ignition with proximity entry, leather and cloth seats with a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, fog lights, dual exhaust, stability control, dual climate control, power windows, locks and mirrors, heated mirrors, an Active ECO system, integrated Bluetooth, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel and more.

Limited models add a sunroof, leather seats, heated front seats, an upgraded audio system and interior trim plus other items for $27,045.

Both models come with Hyundai’s first-ever direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine making 274-hp and 269 ft-lbs of torque, that gets 33-mph highway and 22-mpg in the city.
