The Hyundai Sonata has Shocked the World!

The Hyundai Sonata has become one of the most popular full-size sedans during this new decade. Hyundai is a Korean based company that launched the Sonata into producion in 1985. It was first classified as a mid-size sedan which lasted for 26 years until they remodeled the vehicle and made some major changes in 2011. Now, the Sonata is classified as a full-size sedan thanks to a good amount of upgrades in the car’s features, size, and interior.

Hyundai Sonata Design

The brand new Sonata has a new sleek design thanks to its model changes in 2011. Not only did Hyundai make it much roomier on the inside, but they’ve added many sporty features to the exterior of the car to make it more attractable to consumers. They added a chrome grille in the front along with much larger stock alloy wheels. Hyundai, in recent years, is becoming known for providing some of the best vehicle paint jobs in the industry, and the Sonata is no different. The side mirrors even have heated capabilities to eliminate fog or frost during those cold winter nights and the windows have been made with solar control in order to block hot UV rays from coming into the vehicle – protecting you from the heat of the sun. The Sonata also remodeled their trunk space allowing for more cargo room. Hyundai has really taken a strong hold of the market.
