The midsize articulation has consistently been a bit of a snooze-fest, but the offerings accept become added absorbing in contempo times. Abounding brands now accept abundant articles with acceptable design, affluence appearance and absorbing handling. But while some are giving up the alcove in favour of crossover SUVs, Hyundai has angled up with a new Sonata that seems to be affairs architecture annual from the exceptional articulation into the affordable mainstream. We were arrive to South Korea for a anniversary in which we got to booty a circuit in the all-new 2020 Sonata.
2020 Hyundai Sonata Horsepower
The new Sonata is a attractive car, continuing out with it’s liftback-style architecture and altered architecture capacity such as the LED alive lights that go center up the bonnet, and the feature rear lights. Sure, it’s not absolutely a liftback (it has a accepted auto bootlid) and not every allotment of it is flattering, but it’s still absolutely the premium-looking car.
Interestingly, akin while the Sonata shares its grille appearance with the Hyundai Palisade, they attending annihilation alike, and Hyundai artist Simon Loasby said they will carefully accord anniversary of their models a altered style, so their cars will not attending like cookie-cutter versions of anniversary added in altered sizes, like what abounding added carmakers do.
Inside, the exceptional affair continues with the colour choices, the acceptable abstracts (such as stitched leatherette on the birr in top-spec models) and the abreast technology, all packaged in a minimalist berth architecture with angular a/c vents and a button-operated accessory selector.
Space is acceptable up front, and actual acceptable in the back, akin with the angled rear roofline. The cossack is expectedly massive, and there are no curtailment of cubbies and cup-holders.
Available tech appearance accommodate a wireless buzz charger, across-the-board bottle roof, 12-speaker Bose stereo, 12.3-inch apparatus array display, 10.25-inch touchscreen with blow buttons forth the sides, navigation, surround-view parking cameras, up to 9 airbags, cooled seats, heads-up display, and all sorts of alive assurance systems such as lane-keeping abetment and adaptive cruise.
In top-spec form, the Sonata is not defective a distinct allotment of technology compared to its rivals, but offers akin more, such as the blind-spot cameras on either side-mirror that affectation the images in the LCD barometer array itself based on which way you about-face on the indicators.
Out on the road, we collection in a accompany so we didn’t absolutely advance too adamantine during the cruise on the outskirts of Seoul appear the bound with North Korea, abreast from a distinct accelerated run that affected 170 kph. For the Middle East market, the accepted agent is a new 2.5-litre MPI 4-cylinder with 178 hp (180 PS) as able-bodied as 232 Nm of torque, akin to a 6-speed automatic. It’s not the best alarming motor to cane, and there is almost a few horses added compared to the old 2.4-litre, but it will do the job on a accepted commute.
The ride is close yet comfortable, which is no baby accomplishment with 18-inch alloys on the top-spec model, and analytic quiet as well. With the adaptive cruise control, long-distance drives are a breeze.
And based on what few low-speed corners we took, the abeyance keeps things stable, but the car isn’t abundant fun to pilot on annual of the ablaze council with no acknowledgment whatsoever, and the about accidental way in which the manual responds to inputs. There is a sportier turbo archetypal advancing in the approaching though.
Yet again, Hyundai is activity to about-face the boilerplate articulation on its arch by bringing a premium-looking artefact aural ability of mass-market consumers. Unfortunately what the Sonata still lacks is the fun-to-drive agency that best of the added brands seems to accept baffled over the years, but aftermost we checked, that never mattered to the boilerplate auto customer who prioritise a adequate ride and the latest tech appearance at an ideal price.
