Far from the bright lights of Frankfurt – in South Korea, actually – came news that the 2011 Hyundai Sonata YF was finally unveiled in its native land.

While most of us were too busy getting mesmerized by the jaw-dropping vehicles at the IAA, Hyundai quietly unveiled their new flagship mid-sized sedan and from the looks of things, they may have found a car that can give the Camry a run for its money.

The car is slated for production sometime in the early part of 2010 in America with Hyundai bringing to the States a 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder unit. The unveiling was well-attended by the local media although the international delegation seems to have been thinned out considerably since most of them were most likely on the other side of the world.

In any case, we have a video promotion of the car right here for your enjoyment.

I like Hyundais’ latest achievements but the one area where they always fall short(with the exception of the Genesis coupe) is design. They never stand out. Both the Camry and the Altima have agreeble designs and are recognizable.
