2011 Hyundai Sonata: Seeing A Few More On the Road

January 17, 2011

Now that the latest Sonata has been on sale for a while, I've started to see more of them on the road. Thanks to the distinctive styling (whether you like it or not), they're pretty easy to spot. And I was a party over the weekend and met a guy who had a silver 2011 Sonata -- although it turned out his was a rental. I'd be curious to know how much Hyundai is pushing the new Sonata for sales to rental fleets since the domestic automakers have traditionally embraced fleet sales and Toyota and Honda have typically shied away from it.

Anyway, Hyundai sold 196,623 Sonatas in 2010. Here are a few other hand-picked family sedans for comparion.

Camry: 327,804
Accord: 311,381
Altima: 229,263
Fusion: 219,219
Malibu: 198,770
Legacy: 38,725
Mazda 6: 35,662
