The 200hp SE model is priced from $22,595 but if you want the top-of-the-line limited model, you can have one for $25,295. John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO, said that for the 2011 Sonata, the focus had been for a no-compromise engineering approach that would allow Sonata owners to have their cake, and eat it too.

He shared that the company's efforts have resulted to a set of attributes unheard of in the midsize car category. These 2011 Sonata has features that include 35 mpg and 200hp, bold design and an EPA Large Car interior, world-class quality and a class-leading value position. Krafcik added that with this car, it has reset conventional wisdom.
