|Test Drive the 2012 Hyundai Sonata in the Tri-Cities area at Friendship Hyundai of Bristol!|
The 2012 Hyundai Sonata, available to Tri-Cities area customers in Bristol, TN, at Friendship Hyundai of Bristol, carefully balances design, comfort and performance to provide you with an optimal driving experience.
Whether you choose the 2.4L GDI or the 274-HP 2.0L Turbo, each delivers class-leading horsepower as well as unexpected fuel efficiency. The Sonata's 2.4L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine is the most powerful naturally aspirated 4-cylinder in its class. Delivering up to 200 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2.4L gets a segment-leading 35 miles from every gallon of gas on the highway. This allows it to meet Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standards, and in some states, a version even qualifies for Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) status. The Sonata 2.0T is a game-changer. This 4-cylinder twin-scroll turbo pumps out 274 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque-more than the V6 Camry, Accord and Altima. And at 34 highway MPG, blows them all away on fuel economy as well. Why spring for an expensive, less-economical V6 when you can get more power and better MPG with the 2.0T?
The first thing you'll notice is the styling. Raked roofline, shark-fin antenna, sculpted grille-the Sonata has taken the lead in a new wave of Hyundai design called "Fluidic Sculpture". The California influence is evident in its forward-thinking style, fusing beauty, performance and efficiency in one complete package.
Using opposing electrical charges, the advanced rotational dip paint process pulls primer and paint onto every inch and corner of the Sonata's chassis and body, sealing them away from the elements and the effects of salt, rust and corrosion. The result is one of the highest quality paint jobs in the industry.
Heated side mirrors ward off frost, while solar control windows block UV rays to protect the interior, and you, from the wrath of the sun. The intentionally large windows increase visibility, reduce blind spots and contribute to a feeling of spaciousness and ride comfort for you and your passengers.
Blue Link™. Steering-wheel-mounted audio, phone and cruise controls. 400-watt Infinity® AM/FM/XM®/CD/MP3 audio system with HD Radio® technology. Bluetooth® hands-free phone system. Touchscreen navigation. With a slew of standard and optional equipment to choose from, you just got more than you bargained for.
Proximity Key entry and push button start let you keep your keys in your pocket or purse. Power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support give you eight ways to create a perfect fit. Dual automatic temperature controls, heated front seats and even heated rear seats make sure that customized comfort for you and your passengers is a constant.
The Sonata has more interior volume and cargo space than the Toyota Camry. More head room, more leg room in front, and thanks to specially designed recessed hinges, even a larger trunk. In other words: plenty of room for five, plus luggage.
Multiple airbags. Reinforced unibody design. Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System and advanced braking systems, all standard. The Sonata is as safe as we could make it, even receiving a 5-star crash test rating from the NHTSA.
Thanks to airbags galore, 4-wheel ABS brakes, front and rear crumple zones, and a whole host of modern safety technologies, the Sonata received a 2011 'Top Pick' award from the IIHS. And with a name like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, you can bet they take their testing very seriously.
