2011 Hyundai Sonata One Of Car And Driver's Top 10

Car and Driver has named the 2011 Hyundai Sonata as one of the top 10 cars for 2011. This is a great accomplishment as the first Hyundai to make the list. I've noticed many of the popular vehicle magazines admit the greatness of Hyundai but are the last to rid themselves of stigmas and stick the the beige and bland. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata bests the competition in almost every category! With this sweet new styling and the fact it is packed full of features the Sonata has been a no-brainer for a lot of my guests at the dealership. We are actually winning customers over from the Lexus store next door. Here's a quick look!
