There are years, the development of a car model to go with its sedan line was a given. That was before minivans and station wagons were invented presented the only logical way to move families. Until recently, the cars were death from any model. Nobody offered them, except for a few brave European brands that sell niche sports cars, including Volvo and Mercedes.
Dodge Magnum began to turn the tide, a sports car sold from 2005 to 2008. Dodge proved that a car with good muscular appearance was a call that went beyond the traditional media face family offering a male mobile man. Unfortunately, Chrysler's financial problems forced the interruption of Magnum and several other models.
Today, the style of the car body is limited in some compact models including the Volkswagen SportWagen, Subaru Impreza wagon, Audi A3 wagon and expensive European cars of BMW and Mercedes.
The Hyundai Sonata, redesigned for 2011, may be the next car sold in the United States. Available as a sedan in North America, the Sonata is sold as the i40 hatchback in Europe, with a wagon model coming in 2011. Europe is a natural market for Sonata Wagon cars that never lost its appeal there. Unlike America, European cars are valued for their handling, tight suspensions and storage capacity. Minivans are not common in Europe, but cars are still.
The car Hyundai Sonata might have a chance on the American market, Korean manufacturers costumes this model with its turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter. This engine would give the car the necessary shot, while providing good fuel economy, a kind of bridge between the Dodge Magnum wagon and the Subaru Impreza retirement.
Will we see the wagon Sonata? Asked if by Autoblog Hyundai, he commented. "We can not comment on future product plans, but is certainly aware of the increasing popularity of cars performed well, particularly in markets such as Europe, where consumers demand a high degree of versatility and economy fuel than cars deliver."
