Hyundai has made great strides in the last few years and most importantly with its midsize Sonata. The all-new Sonata, which debuted earlier this year has been very well received and has set a new sales record for Hyundai.
“Sonata has delivered some pretty incredible results for us this year,” says John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO. “Sonata is the Hyundai brand and it’s appropriate that it has led our best year ever. Sonata’s innovation has reset the most hotly contested, largest segment in the U.S. car market, with Sonata delivering more year-over-year retail sales growth – about 90,000 units – than any other car in the entire industry.”
The all-new Sonata also helped Hyundai sell more than 530,000 vehicles in the US this year. Hyundai currently sells three versions of the Sonata, the naturally aspirated 2.4L, the 274-hp 2.0L turbocharged Sonata and the Sonata hybrid.
