Hyundai Sonata Now 3rd Best Selling Sedan in US
The Sonata has overtaken the Nissan Altima as the third best-selling mid-size sedan in America.
In August, the Korean manufacturer sold 21,399 units, falling just behind the Honda Accord at 22,506 and the Toyota Camry at a little over 30,000.
Sonata's been besting rivals like the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu for some time, but beating one of the Japanese leaders is another story.
It's no wonder. Sonata's sexy styling, low price, snappy interior and very efficient drivetrain have captured everyone's attention.
With sales on fire, the likelihood of getting a great deal diminishes. However, the lower starting price of the Sonata still makes it attractive for buyers considering a mid-size sedan.

California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
