The Sonata 2.0T is the second element of the game-changing 2011 Sonata product lineup, with the Sonata Hybrid, powered by Hyundais all-new Hybrid Blue Drive system, featuring breakthrough lithium-polymer batteries, to debut later this year
Hyundai Motor America has announced pricing for its all-new Sonata 2.0T Turbo, starting at $24,145 MSRP for the Sonata SE 2.0T and $27,045 for the Sonata Limited 2.0T.
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, were delivering on all three of those commitments, with an MSRP of just $24,145 for an incredibly well-equipped Sonata 2.0T SE. The new Sonata lineup demonstrates what Hyundais Blue Drive approach to fuel economy leadership is all about game-changing products with industry-leading fuel efficiency that arent compromises or low-volume special-fuel-economy marketing ploys.
