Hyundai Sonata Coupe a possibility?

2011 Hyundai Sonata

According to the folks at Inside Line, since Hyundai has already introduced a turbocharged and hybrid version of the 2011 Sonata, a Sonata coupe may be the next logical extension to the lineup.

Since the rear-wheel-drive Genesis coupe already occupies the sporty end of things for Hyundai, a front-wheel-drive coupe could give the South Korean brand a chance to steal some market share from the Nissan Altima Coupe and the Honda Accord Coupe.

The 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will go on sale alongside the Sonata 2.0T later this year.
