A slow selling car will automatically translate into lower values in the used car market.You can buy a Sonata Embera for the price of a Honda Civic or a Toyota Corolla, cars which are a segment below the Embera. However, the Sonata does not have the same upmarket image as that of its rival, Honda Accord.
The Embera has strong , clean lines and looks handsome from all angles , the minus side being that it does not have a very involving drive. It has a big boot and split seats for added convenience.The factor of leather upholstery and soft-touch dashboard add to the luxurious feel.

A must while buying is th full service history which is essential to enjoy the balance of the oiginal warranty.
