Hyundai made an impressive statement with their new models unveiled in the past few years on the automotive market and the new Sonata is no exception. So, inspired by their great success, Hyundai decided it was time to try a convertible version for the new sedan.
Now, since the Chrysler Sebring has received some undesirable attention and the Toyota Solara and Pontiac G6 convertibles are dead, it seems that a future Sonata Convertible will have no competitors on the market.
Most likely - if built - the convertible version will feature the same engines as the sedan: a 200-horsepower 2.4-liter inline-4 as in the SE model or the 274-hp 2.0-liter turbo from the 2.0T model. A power-folding fabric top will be used instead of a retractable hardtop.
