Chicago Auto Show: 2009 Hyundai Sonata Revealed, Now With Super-Capacity CupholdersMatthew DeBord2/03/08 12:01amFiled to: chicago auto show2008 Chicago Auto Show2009 Hyundai SonataChicago Auto Show 2008HyundaiSonata31EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkWe've already caught a Korean preview of the new Sonata as it rather slickly though liltingly transforms from the 2008 model to the 2009 version. But now we're gonna catch this revamped mid-size in the flesh, right here at the Chicago Auto Show. This isn't exactly the kind of ride you ooh and aah over, but given that Hyundai is making a serious effort to win over American hearts and minds this week, placing not one but two ad buys during the Super Bowl and pulling the trigger on its downscale-luxe Genesis, whatever adjustments (however minor) they're making to the packaging of their main player in the dog-eat-dog, kill-your-dad, eat-your-mother mid-size realm is notable. After all, the Genesis may build buzz and get folks into dealerships, but Hyundai still needs to move product in volume segments. The company says the '09 Sonata will hit dealership later this month. Details and the press release, après la jump.
