Hyundai Sonata and hybrid for sale and review

Krafcik explains the re-designed 2011 Sonata, and the new Sonata SE that is sooo sporty.

Krafcik talks about Hyundai going away from the pack – moving away from 6-cylinders to 4-cylinder turbo charged and 4-cylinder gasoline direct injection vehicles. Krafcik also talks about a 4-cylinder turbo charged gasoline direct injection vehicle that will be coming out.

Most companies don’t think about Hyundai as a member of the midsize luxury vehicle group. Krafcik knows this and knows why.
