NEW YORK—In its November 2012 issue, out on newsstands this week, Good Car magazine bestowed its trademark “This Is A Good Car” ranking upon the 2013 Hyundai Sonata, which the publication features on its cover. “From its good handling, good fuel-efficiency, and good reliability, to a range of good safety features and equally good factory options, the 2013 Sonata proves itself to be a good car,” write the editors of GC. “Consumers in search of a good automobile will likely find it to be one among many possible good choices.” The article went on to speculate that the Sonata no doubt outperforms bad cars, and falls somewhat short of great ones, but acknowledged those two categories of vehicles are outside Good Car magazine’s editorial purview.
