Hyundai Sonata Breaks Previous Sales Record

Hyundai has climbed the ranks to become one of the leading car brands in recent years, and now the popular midsize Sonata has broken its all-time annual sales record. Last year, this model sold a record-setting 225,961 units, but the Sonata has already surpassed this amount in 2012, with a few days left to close out the year. The car has been turning heads for a few years now, standing out among other similar models for its impressive performance and many features.

"Sonata's redesign in early 2010 demonstrates that midsize sedans that paired bold design and fuel-efficiency with long-time segment essentials such as roominess, safety and durability could really break through," said John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. "We'd like to think Sonata helped spur on the latest generation of bolder midsize sedans, and we're happy to see that this new competition hasn't dented Sonata retail sales, which are now running third behind only Camry and Accord in December."

Since the redesigned Hyundai has been available for a few years, drivers searching for used cars may be able to find previously owned Sonatas. Oftentimes, used models already have many of the great features that are included in the sale price. These same additions would each cost extra for car shoppers looking to buy new models. NJ State Auto Auction has a wide selection of makes and models to choose from, making it easy for drivers in the New York/New Jersey area to find the ride they want. Plus, every vehicle on the lot is CARFAX certified, ensuring drivers will get behind the wheel of a reliable ride.
