It’s a busy Saturday and the 2015 Hyundai models have started arriving, and the Centennial Hyundai showroom is packed.
Among the customers, finalizing the details on a 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T Turbo with the ultimate package is Centennial Hyundai sales agent TJ Saunders, whose black Sonata is not only impressive looking, but fun to drive.
Saunders, 51, a six-year veteran of the car business, is like every other new-car buyer in that he’s excited about his new purchase, especially considering that he works in the Internet department at 6200 Centennial Center Blvd. in the northwest valley.
“No matter what Hyundai does one year, it does it even better the next year as evidenced by the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T,” Saunders said. “The Sonata I bought is evidence of that.
“As a salesperson, I think it’s important that we have faith in what we sell,” he said. “I had been considering buying another vehicle, but I cannot tell you how happy I am now to be the owner of a brand-new Hyundai.
“All of a sudden, I was a customer and it was nice to be in the customer seat so I could actually feel what our customers experience. The thrill of getting a new car — and especially a new Hyundai — is very cool.”
The Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0T with the ultimate package comes with a many amenities that Saunders says rivals with some of the more expensive luxury vehicles elsewhere.
Getting more than 26 miles to the gallon, the Sonata 2.0T Turbo is also fuel efficient.
“It has the same equipment you would find on any high-line luxury vehicle,” Saunders said. “The interior is leather and also includes a panoramic sunroof, the smart cruise control with stop/start capability, blind spot warning, rear sunshades, navigation, HD Radio, smart trunk (it opens by itself as long as the key is in a 3-foot range), navigation, ventilated seats and a rear parking assistance system as just some of a long list.
