2011 Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai continues to break down barriers illustrating its consumer lifestyle compatibility with the 2011 International Car of the Year win for the 2011 Sonata. The award was presented at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The ICOTY Awards honor vehicles based on lifestyle compatibility and the emotional connection between car and consumer.

“With a completely new look for 2011, the Sonata really took us by surprise,” said ICOTY Executive Producer, Courtney Caldwell. “Hyundai laces the new Sonata with hardware including sporty suspension tuning and a strong powertrain that achieves best-in-class fuel economy scores. Combine that with a stunning shape and design, it truly is a complete package that will satisfy the emotional connection consumers seek when shopping for a mid-size sedan.”

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as the 2011 ICOTY winner as Sonata’s breakthrough design, outstanding fuel economy and overall residual value have been game changing for our brand,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Hyundai sales are up from last year with Sonata leading the charge based on its ability to appeal to a broad array of consumer lifestyle sets.”

The all-new 2011 Sonata is the new industry standard for mid-size sedans with a unique fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine delivering class leading fuel economy, emotional design, high-tech and luxurious convenience features and standard safety equipment. It was the first mid-size car to receive a five-star crash test rating under National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s new, more stringent 2011 system and an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick honor, placing it in a safety position unsurpassed in the industry.
