Well, I personally would rather spend the extra few grand on an Accord, Camry, Altima or 6.
To get the power of the four cylinders of those aforementioned cars you'd need to have the 2.7L V6 (170hp) because the japanese fours all make in the neighborhood of 160-170hp (the Sonata's four cylinder makes a meager 138hp). So that brings the price up to almost the base price of the midrange or base japanese cars. To me buying from the Korean brands aren't worthwhile because they still arent up to quality levels of the japanese automakers and their reliability has been very shady (Hyundai being very low on the JD power brand makers reliability list). If I were you I'd spend the extra grand or so and get the Accord LX or Camry LE/SE.
