Its exterior was designed by the Italian design company ItalDesign, and featured Mitsubishi engineering and a 2.4-liter engine.

Since its inception the Sonata has come a long way, appearing in the 2008 Consumer Reports "Best Vehicles for $25,000 or Less" segment. Prior to that, Hyundai opened its first American production plant in Montgomery, Alabama in 2005 to handle increased Hyundai demand.

Most notably, the 2011 Sonata was one of the top three finalists for the 2011 "North American Car of the Year" award.
