Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai Sonata

Hyundai launched the new Sonata in 2012 and have done a great job with the new Sonata. The new Hyundai Sonata takes the cake when it comes to the exterior looks. It has a classy and distinguished profile owing to the “Fluidic” design concept from Hyundai.

The swept back huge headlamps and chromed front grille sporting the Hyundai logo combined with angular looking fog lamps integrated into the bumpers gives the new Sonata a very aggressive and stylish front end. The rear has a very upmarket and stylish design which gels extremely well with the rest of the car. The car has sleek lines and the door handles are beautifully integrated into the swooping cut on the doors.

The new Hyundai Sonata gets 10 spoke 17 inch alloy shod with 215/55 tyres which add to the sportiness of the car. The new Sonata has been constructed extremely well while the fit, finish and paint quality is just top notch.

The new Sonata has a cavernous cabin area and will easily accommodate the tallest of passengers inside. It has large glass windows which gives you a fresh and airy feel inside. The seats are extremely comfortable and offer excellent support to the body and they are also ventilated as with a touch of a button you can cool or heat the seats.

The driver seat is a 10 way adjustable seat which is best in class. The steering as the audio controls, cruise controls, trip meter, Bluetooth telephony and looks great clad in leather and rubber. The new Sonata has dual tone dashboard with a sporty looking center console full of features with shiny audio controls and faux wood finish panels. It also sports 2 12V sockets, AUX/USB connectors, reverse camera.

There are plenty of storage areas inside and the boot space is excellent and slightly larger than its outgoing model.

The new Sonata brings only one engine and does away with the diesel unit and is now available in a petrol engine variant only. The new engine is Hyundai’s first direct-injection 2.4 liter 4-cylinder GDI unit which produces 198 BHP at 6300 RPM and maximum torque of 250 NM at 4250 RPM. It is available in Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.

The MT version has a good gearbox which shifts smoothly and is easy to drive in the city and the highway performance is excellent. The AT version offers a good drive but is not as spirited as the MT variant. There is plenty of torque and you can feel it as you run the car through the gears in either of the engine variants on the new Hyundai Sonata.

ARAI has certified the Sonata to deliver a maximum fuel efficiency of 13.9 kmpl for the MT variant and 14.8 for the AT variant of the new Sonata.

The newer Hyundai Sonata brings a suspension setup which has been primarily tuned for comfort. Like its predecessor it doesn’t have a sporty package. It glides over bumps and potholes and manages to provide a very comfortable drive owing to its softer suspension tune. It is not a corner carver and doesn’t inspire confidence to push it on the twisties.

Hyundai’s focus was on ensuring maximum rear passenger comfort as this car is most likely chauffeur driven hence they haven’t built the car to please the enthusiasts. At Rs 18.5 lakh for manual version and Rs 20.6 lakh for the automatic, the new Sonata is good value for money. For a detailed review read below
