The 2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS presents itself as the base trim for this model, powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but a six-speed shiftable automatic is available. Cloth upholstery covers the front bucket and split-folding rear seat, but neither are power. Major adjustments will have to come from the tilt and telescoping steering wheel, which also houses controls for the satellite-ready CD and MP3 player, which comes with an iPod adapter and digital-media-player connection. Bluetooth is standard here, as well as power windows, locks, heated power mirrors and remote-keyless entry. 16-inch wheels come with covers and hide the antilock, four-wheel disc brakes. Stopping is additionally aided by brake assist and anti-skid, and further safety features include traction control, daytime running lights and six standard airbags.

Moving up to the Limited trim means you’re obviously not interested in performance, so Hyundai saw fit to take back the 2 horsepower and lb-ft of torque it added to the 2.4-liter engine in the SE. The 274-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter is still an option, however, and a good one at that. While the usual features of power windows, doors and heated power mirrors are still included, the luxury features are piled on here. Dual-zone automatic climate controls begin your comfort journey, aided on your way by heated leather buckets and a heated split-folding rear. You’ll also be greeted by a power sunroof and mirror-mounted turn signals. The stereo has been upgraded as well, with a 6-CD and MP3 player with Hi-Def satellite radio and digital-media player connection with iPod adapter. Automatic headlights, foglights and daytime running lights still make an appearance, along with an automatic rear-view and a garage door opener. The typical safety features of traction control, antiskid, four-wheel antilock brakes with brake assist and six standard airbags are still included, and in the interest of comfort, the wheels have been downgraded to 17-inch alloys.

For a bit more sport in your Sonata, the SE trim offers 2 additional horsepower and lb-ft of torque from its 2.4-liter inline four. Strangely for a trim that is presented as sporty, the SE deletes the six-speed manual and only offers the six-speed shiftable automatic. There’s also the option of a 274-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Further “sport” upgrades include a revised suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels, but most additional changes are for aesthetics or convenience. These include leather for the tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and special upholstery in cloth and leather. The driver’s bucket gains 8-way power and lumbar adjustment, and the daytime running lights are joined by automatic headlights and foglights. Remote keyless entry is matched by keyless access and start as well, and a theft-deterrent system is included. Otherwise the SE is indistinguishable from its less-expensive stablemate, with its satellite-ready CD and MP3 player, Bluetooth, iPod adapter and digital-media player connection. It has the same power windows, door locks and heated power mirrors and all the safety features, like traction control, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, brake assist, anti-skid and six standard airbags.
