2012 Hyundai Sonata adds Blue Link, gets fuel economy bump — Autoblog

Hyundai is taking a shot at General Motors and OnStar by announcing that every 2012 Sonata will come with the company's Blue Link system as standard equipment. In addition to providing a direct connection to emergency services in the event of an accident, Blue Link also delivers traffic and weather updates and allows owners easy access to roadside assistance. Buyers can also pair their smartphones with Blue Link to help locate their vehicle in a crowded parking lot or to play Big Brother to their children. The system can keep track of where the vehicle is being driven and how fast it's going.

Hyundai has also managed to eek a little more efficiency from the sedan. The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is now good for 24 miles per gallon – a gain of 2 mpg – in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, and models equipped with the company's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder now net 22 mpg and 34 mpg highway, up from 33 mpg highway in last year's car. The Korean automaker says that the small changes mean that the Sonata now leads all mid-sized sedans in fuel economy, excluding hybrids.
