2011 Hyundai Sonata: Lots of Interior Storage
July 29, 2010
Hyundai certainly put some thought into giving the new Sonata a lot of interior storage. There's plenty of space for your stuff, whether its cell phones, MP3 players, drinks, etc. Almost all of these locations are lined or rubberized to keep items from sliding around or rattling. Of the recent long-term cars we've had, the Sonata certainly ranks at or near the top for interior storage design. Photos of the Sonata's storage areas in action follow after the jump.
Up front, you a cubby that works well for electronics (phones, iPods); a small holder next to the cubby (not really pictured) that's good for little items or spare change; a lidded storage slot for items like CDs; and a sunglasses holder (which is good as long as you're not wearing huge Hollywood-style glasses).
The door bins can hold bottles and have a pretty wide slot, too. The rear has two map pockets.
The center console bin is two-tiered; the lower bin is pretty deep. There's also the the shallow area ahead of the bin. The glove-box is kind of small, however.
