2012 HYUNDAI SONATA
The Hyundai Sonata enters the 2012 model year with even more safety, technology and convenience offerings including Blue Link, HD Radio Technology and new 7-inch touch-screen navigation.
Hyundai Blue Link is a standard feature on the 2012 Sonata. Blue Link provides up-to-the-minute traffic and weather information and is a lifeline to emergency services and roadside assistance. Synched to a smartphone, Blue Link will let the owner know where their Sonata is in a crowded baseball stadium parking lot or shopping center.
The exterior of the 2012 Sonata is long, light and low. The high beltline allows for a long, sleek roofline accented by a third window. A monoform side profile includes flowing lines highlighted by a Hyundai signature chrome accent that spans the length of the car.
The sophisticated look continues inside where Hyundai has created an upscale ambiance thanks to a flow-through center console and instrument panel. These flowing surfaces complement the exterior design and wrap around the driver and passengers.
The Sonata has the Theta II GDI 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a Gasoline Direct-Injection fuel delivery system, which contributes to improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The horsepower and torque ratings for the Theta II GDI are 198 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque.
In the SE trim, which includes a standard dual exhaust, the engine delivers 200 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque. With the 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI engine, the 2012 Sonata offers an unprecedented combination of segment-leading fuel efficiency and power -- with an estimated 33 mpg highway rating -- 274 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque with regular fuel.
