2011 Hyundai SonataEnlarge Photo
A 2011 Hyundai Sonata sedan is in the works, and this morning's Detroit News has a spy shot of the upcoming four-door.
The News reports the sedan's internal project codename is YF. Designed in Hyundai's Orange County, Calif., studios, the new four-door is getting a hybrid companion when it emerges this fall.
A concept car may emerge later this year, and we expect the production version to show itself at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
Production of the new-generation Sonata will remain in Montgomery, Alabama, where lines are slowed along with the sales of the mid-size four-door.
TheCarConnection.com will be updating our full review of the Sonata in two weeks, with a drive in the new four-cylinder version.
