Hyundai Sonata facelift debuts in Korea

By Faiming_low on 09 Mar 2017 in New model

Attached Image The facelifted Hyundai Sonata has made it debut in South Korea. Still in its seventh generation, the car now looks sharper like its i30 sibling. At the front, new slimmer headlights and a restyled grill give the car a more upmarket look while the rear receives some changes in the form of a new two-piece taillight and a cleaner looking boot. A set of newly-designed 17-inch rims feature too.

Attached Image Even though the car is launched in Korea with a 1.6-litre Gamma T-GDI petrol (178bhp) and a range-topping 2.0-litre Theta T-GDI petrol with 241bhp, it is very likely we will be getting the usual 2.0-litre natural aspirated petrol (160bhp). The engine will be paired with a six-speed automatic.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

The front resembles the Elantra.

The rear resembles the Kia K5.

Looks more of a copy and paste job!

The saving grace is the 6 speed auto tranny, instead of a rubbery CVT.

looks like KMC is still thinking that cars with non turbo will out sell the competition...

 

either that or the CEVS will rule out or push the car into a level of pricing with Conti at a non conti refinement.

Hyundai cars have low resale value and high depreciation. Although aftermarket parts and services are available in abundance for hyundai cars making it admirable to the middle class of service sector.
