Hyundai Sonata Freeport, A Segment Winning Midsize Sedan

A U.S. News and World Reports list the 2013 Hyundai Sonata is the most affordable midsize sedan. The Sonata faced stiff competition from a highly competitive segment class that features some of the best cars currently on the market. U.S. News based their ranking of the Hyundai Sonata Freeport on an analysis of 18 published reviews, test drives and an analysis of reliability and safety data. Great fuel economy, a modern styling and a spacious cabin nudged the Sonata to the top spot in the segment. The current generation Sonata has been on the market for two years meaning that the long list of features that once set this sedan apart from the crowd is quickly shrinking.

For 2013 the Hyundai TX Sonata boasts two engine choices a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is good for 198 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 274 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2013 Sonata is available in three trim levels the GLS, SE and Limited.

The base Sonata comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split rear setback and cruise control. The GLS Hyundai Houston Sonata also features such niceties as keyless entry, full-power accessories, heated mirrors and a CD player with a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth and satellite radio with iPod/USB interface. An optional Popular Equipment package is available. If you decide to add on this package you’ll receive alloy wheels, fog lights, heated front seats and an eight-way power driver seat, on top of the GLS’ standard features.

From there the long, luxurious features that come standard on the SE and Limited trims are an array of features that are optional on most other vehicles in the segment. Hyundai Sonata Freeport SE is a sporty trim coming with 18-inch wheels that are enveloped by performance tires, a dark chrome grille, a sport-tuned suspension in addition to leather/cloth upholstery. Going for the turbocharged SE adds on dual-zone automatic climate control and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The luxurious Limited comes standard with leather upholster and a softer suspension in addition to the standard features from the SE. Also standard are a sunroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and heated rear seats. There is also a turbocharged variant available that boasts dual exhaust tips and 18-inch wheels.

A pre-owned car is an affordable option, the only option, available for most people when looking to replace an older vehicle. As noted earlier the current 5th generation Hyundai TX Sonata was originally released in 2011 and has only received minimal changes since then. For 2012 the Sonata gained both BlueLink telematics service and a higher-resolution navigation system display. For 2011 and 2012 the base Sonata GLS trim was available with a manual transmission that was then cut from the 2013 model.

Hyundai has been known for its reliable and affordable cars, but did you know Hyundai Houston is also a multiple award winning automotive company? With multiple vehicles receiving different awards, it’s a task just to list them all on one page. In addition to all the awards and nominations, Hyundai Freeport also strives to be outstanding citizens.  In 2004, Hyundai established the “Hope On Wheels” tour to benefit pediatric cancer institutions throughout the U.S, Don Davis has raised over 40 million dollars for charity and still going strong.

 

You may be thinking why you should buy a car from a foreign company? Hyundai is in fact a Korean company, but over half of the cars that Hyundai Houston sells in the U.S. are made right here in the states. With 3 different facilities in Alabama, Michigan, and California, you can safely say Don Davis builds American cars. Hyundai Freeport provides around 90,000 jobs for American automotive workers, more than some of the smaller foreign automotive companies around today.

 

True quality is a thing that few automotive companies can really produce anymore. There is a reason why Hyundai Houston can back their vehicles with America’s best warranty. Every Hyundai Freeport is strenuously tested in the world’s most extreme driving conditions. Hyundai tests its vehicles at its California testing facility, which covers 4,300 acres with eight different driving courses, including a 2.75-mile winding track, a 3.3-mile hill road, and a durability loop that includes a range of special surfaces, from cobblestones to potholes.

Hybrid and Eco-Friendly cars are becoming more and more popular by the minute, and Hyundai Houston is one of the few automotive companies that envision a greener future.  A few different alternatives are available when purchasing a new Hyundai Freeport, such as a Fuel Cell vehicle, which are powered by clean hydrogen and only produce water and heat as by-products. Everyone by now knows how hybrid vehicles work, but if your still new to the concept its pretty simple to understand. Hybrid Cars are powered by liquid petroleum gas, and a battery, which virtually eliminate all harmful emissions that regular vehicles produce.
