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.
Refresher: The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is currently on sale with prices starting at $19,195 for the base GLS model. Power for the 2011 Sonata GLS comes from a 2.4L direct-injected 4-cylinder making 198-hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE starts at $22,595 and is powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder uprated to 200-hp. Topping the range is the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Limited with the same 200-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder but with more options. Prices for the Sonata Limited start at $25,295.
