It really looks BIG for an Accent...
I am pretty sure I saw the Elantra is getting 6 speed trannies also, like the Sonata, plus will ditch (finally) the old iron block Beta II engine for the latest Hyundai aluminum engines. So looks like all your wishes will be granted. Mine include standard ESC (which will definitely be there since it's mandated very soon) and better crash protection. And the better mpg.
I really like the new Sonata, but the Elantra is plenty roomy for me for an around-town car (the Accent probably is too for that matter). The Sonata is a better car for DW... and in fact she has one now and loves it (2007 GLS).

Dual option is for driver and front passenger.

I think you misunderstood his question. He was asking how the back vents are controlled.

There is no a specific knob controlling temperatures on the dashboard for rear passengers. Two traditional vent blinds on the center console.

Hmm, couldn't find this online..Anyone found a link to this? Would love to read it.

What I'm trying to ask is what temperature blows through the two rear vents in the case that the driver has his temp. set at 68 and the passenger has their temp. set at 80?

I think the only base line, and quite a wide one at that, would be class and intended purpose of the car. In the case of Sonata it's squarely fits in the so called family sedans (Accord, Altima, Camry, Fusion, Malibu, Optima, Passat), Some of them are deemed sportier then others, but none of them is true sports sedan/car. So, it's quite unreasonable if not down right stupid to compare Sonata to BMW 3, A4 or GTI, not to mention Ferrari.
But, within it's class, considering tangible qualities: build quality, materials, fit and finish, set of features, driving dynamics, ride quality, fuel efficiency, power, reliability and value for the $, 2011 Sonata comfortably stands above the "crowd".

I stopped by the library the other day and read it. Don't know if it's online yet. C&D sometimes holds there stuff offline for awhile.
#1876 of 5331 Info on Limited with Camel interior & NAV
Mar 28, 2010 (10:02 am)
Does anyone have any good info on the Limited and the camel interior. I have heard lots of different stories but nothing solid. Are there any phone numbers that I can call to get the real story? I am waiting for a Black Plum Pearl with NAV and Camel interior.
Thanks for any help.

Jim Trainor is the Hyundai National Manager, Product Public Relations.
He said that the production just started on the limited cars could be arriving in dealerships by mid-April. Now, that is going to vary by location.
