By Alabama News Network

Montgomery's Hyundai plant is once again the center of national attention.

Media from across the country are coming to see the new 2015 Sonata.
 
The plant here makes almost all of the new Sonatas which will be hitting dealerships soon.
But the media is here to not only review the car, but the state of Alabama as well. 
 
This is the first time that the Hyundai plant has had so much attention. Over the course of the week, about 120 national media members are coming through the plant. After getting an exclusive look at the new design of the car and a tour of the plant, they have a chance to drive the new car all the way up to Sylacauga. It's a chance to show off more than what the new car can do. 
 
Robert Burns from Hyundai Motor Manufacturing said this about the revealing...
"it's kind of two fold, obviously seeing the 2015 sonata, but the other element is exposing these journalists to Montgomery and Central Alabama. See what the atmosphere here is. We've been having events downtown in the Alley Bar area and the Renaissance Hotel so they're experiencing Montgomery as well."
 
We should be seeing the reviews from all of those publications next Monday.
