Hyundai hit a home run with its 2011 redesign of Sonata. With value as its cornerstone, standard equipment includes full power accessories, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, trip computer, six air bags, and a six-speaker audio system with CD player and auxiliary audio jack.

Consumer Reports gives it a reliability rating of "very good." Generating 198 horsepower, the 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed transmission. Acceleration is enthusiastic. Although the independent suspension is tuned more for ride quality, this fun car corners confidently.
