Free Car Owners Manuals - Hyundai Hyundai Sonata General Information

Free Car Owners Manuals - Hyundai Hyundai Sonata logoThe Hyundai Sonata is a mid-size sedan manufactured and marketed globally through Hyundai Motor Company. Since its introduction with model year 1988, the Sonata has evolved through four generations and several intermediate restylings.

Hyundai facelifted the Sonata for the 2009 model year, marketing the revised model as the Hyundai Sonata Transform in Korea, as well as debuting the model elsewhere as an ‘early’ 2009 model. While the original 2006 fourth generation model was created primarily in Korea, the restyling was created primarily at HATCI (Hyundai-Kia America Technical Center, Inc) in Superior Township, MI — its first major assignment.

The redesign features revised engines, front fascia and grill, taillights, headlights, wheel cover designs and an extensively revised IP (Instrument Panel). Hyundai adopted the “slush molding,” production technique that enables a much higher grade of texturing and shaping of the IP surface.

Redesigned gauges feature a blue backlight, as well as a touch-screen navigation system, optional on the ‘Limited’ trim level only, includes satellite radio capability. Bluetooth capability is available as an optional unit, separate from the audio or navigation system, as well as all models include both a USB port along with an auxiliary input jack. An optional USB adaptor cord allows integration of an iPod, as well as chrome interior door handles are standard on the Limited trim.

The 2.4L Theta II engine receives an eight-percent increase in power to 175hp (168 hp with PZEV) and the 3.3L Lambda V6 receives an increase from 234 to 249 hp (186 kW). Fuel efficiency is EPA rated at 22/32 for the I4 and 19/29 for the V6.[7] The base model GLS is available with a manual five speed transmission. GLS, SE and Limited models feature a newly available, manually-shiftable five-speed automatic transmission marketed as “Shiftronic.”
