Top 5 Hyundais to buy in 2013

The coming year will be one of record sales for Korean automaker Hyundai as it shakes free, in our collective memory, of the awful Pony and Excel.

: 2013 Hyundai Sonata GL


AVG. FUEL ECONOMY: 8.7-5.6 L/100km

ACCOLADES: 5-star crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

: This four-door sedan doesn’t have the hardware of its younger, more prosperous Elantra sibling, but that hasn’t stopped the Sonata from becoming one of the valuable mid-sizes around. The Sonata is perfect for parents in need of a family car, but who still crave a little sex appeal with their vehicles. The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine provides the pop of a V6, and while its handling won’t blow anyone away, it the ride always feels safe and smooth. For the safety-minded, the Sonata gets top marks, scoring a perfect 5-star score from the NHTSA, and comes with a gaggle of safety features including advanced front airbags, Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD)Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS).
