What a nice looking teksi..

All the teksis are getting upmarket. From the Camrys in Sydney to Opel Insignia locally. They are joining the bandwagon of Audi A3, Alphards, Mazda 3, Altis, Wish, Vezel etc just to name the common models.

Din see the new sonata on the road yet in seoul. But i saw sonatas on a trailer..

 

Btw sat on my nil's brother's sorrento for a short trip. The interior is nicer than sg sorrento. Brown interior. dashboard looks premium. Leathery touch. Maybe the highest grade model?

 

 

The current teksi in seoul mostly on sonata vii and grandeur.

 

Theres noticably diff in interiors compared to non taxis one.

 

Really is the interior of these makes that makes hell a diff in feel sia

Teksi in Seoul seems cheaper n their sonata nicer than in sg. Easier to get around sometimes as the metro run parallel n interchange station quite far. Only problem is the language as their teksi driver almost cannot speak basic Englis

I juz show the driver the google street view n google map (the streets are in korean). No other form of communication except kamsahamnida when i paying & getting off

 

One particular teksi driver was quite fixated on my Note 9 and kept talking about it in korean. Dunno what to say except "Samsung, korea - good, good" while giving him a thumbs up. Lol

This is how the new Sonata N may look like. 300hp 2L Turbo GDI as shared by the i30N Performance package, not the water down I30N we have in SG. 

 

Hyundai will have a big winner if Komoco brings this here.

As much as I would like to concur, the market perception here for Korean cars has not mature to the stage of acceptance yet as a premium or normal goods status.

 

Just look at the comments on the car forum here which is supposedly for the more savvy people and yet.... So it gives a picture of the feel outside. Secondly, take reference from the Kia Stinger. Still can't shake off the " it's Korean so it must be cheap" mindset. Even without looking at the real car (the new Sonata), the spec, the test drive, already has comments on price expectation.
