    Hyundai Sonata Overview

    The all-new eighth generation Hyundai Sonata made its official Malaysian debut in October 2020. It is the first model in the South Korean automaker’s line up to showcase Hyundai’s latest ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy

    Imported directly from South Korea in CBU form through Hyundai Sime Darby Motor, the Hyundai Sonata is available in the sole 2.5 Premium variant and is initially sold at an introductory price of RM 189,888 for the first 50 units.

    Official price is quoted at RM 206,888 and comes with a five-year limited mileage warranty (500,000km). The D-Segment four-door sedan is set to go up against its rivals like the new Toyota Camry, Mazda 6, Honda Accord and the Volkswagen Passat.

  • Overview

    Hyundai Sonata Design

    The ‘Le Fil Rouge’ is a concept car that showcases all the principles underlying Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy. The design elements exemplified within the concept is reflected in Hyundai’s current and future model lineup including the recent 2021 Hyundai Elantra.

    The all-new Hyundai Sonata features a massive signature Cascading Grille, which according to Hyundai, is inspired by the flow of molten metal contained within a blast furnace when combined with the elegant lines of classical Korean pottery. Innovative design features like the gradient hidden light technology, allows the LED daytime running light to be brightly lit when ON and appears to be part of the chrome trims when OFF. Also featured are a pair of functioning integrated side air curtains on the lower bumper.

    The chrome strip runs across the entire bonnet and continues to the side of the car along the belt lines. A strong shoulder line coupled with a slopping roof line gives the car its fastback silhouette like the Volkswagen Arteon. The 18-inch multi-spoke dual-tone alloy wheel complements the elegant side profile.

    At the rear, the boot lid features an integrated spoiler lip along with a slim horizontal rear LED combination lamp that runs across the boot, giving it a wide and stable stance. Right underneath the horizontal LED light, you will find the ‘Sonata’ brand inscription. Chrome accent is minimal at the rear with a single chrome strip running across the rear diffuser.

    Hyundai Sonata Dimension

    Based on the Hyundai-Kia N3 platform, the Hyundai Sonata shares the same underpinnings as the Kia Optima. It Is one of the longest cars in the segment second only to the new Honda Accord, bested by a mere 1 mm. Weighing in at 1,448 kg, it is one of the lightest too.

  • Interior

    Hyundai Sonata Interior

    The Hyundai Sonota is available in six different exterior colours and each comes with a specific interior theme. The all-Black theme goes with the Oxford Blue and Flame Red, Greige two-tone with the Shimmering Grey and finally the Camel two-tone with the White Cream, Nocturne Grey and the Midnight Black.

    The clean and minimalistic approach to the interior design is reminiscence of the elegant interior of the Mazda 3. The centre console is slightly oriented towards the driver with a floating trapezoidal shaped centre touchscreen panel.

    Materials used in the cabin are of high quality and quite a drastic departure from the Hyundai of old. You get colour themed leather upholstery with extensive use of soft touch materials across the cabin. The seats are comfortable, and all touch points are ergonomically designed. Driver also gets leather wrapped steering wheel and a fully digital instrument panel.

    The massive panoramic sunroof allows natural sunlight into the already spacious interior. Knee room is generous and head room is sufficient too despite the slopping roof line and the sunroof mechanism. Interior storage though is not class leading, is perfectly sufficient for the average driver and the boot space of 510 litres is pretty respectable.

  • Driving Performance

    Hyundai Sonata Engine

    Powering the front wheels is Hyundai’s new all-aluminium 2.5 litre 4-cylinder naturally aspirated Smartstream engine with multi point injection (MPI), delivering 180 PS at 6000 RPM and 232 NM of torque from 4000 RPM.

    Hyundai Sonata Transmission

    The Smartstream engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission featuring shift-by-wire system using the electronic shift button. Paddle shifters are also available for manual gear changes.

  • Ride Comfort

    Hyundai Sonata Ride Comfort

    The structure on which the Hyundai Sonata is based on is now lighter and more rigid thanks to the extensive use of high-specification steel alloys. The body is now stiffer than ever but yet it is 24kg lighter and quieter than previous generation models.

    Safety critical sub-substructures, particularly the dash crossmembers and A-pillars are made with hot-stamped steel to attain the highest possible rigidity. With a MacPherseon Strut up front and an independent multi-link suspension at the rear, the car deals with bumps and road imperfections with much sophistication, riding as good if not better than its Japanese counterparts.

  • Conclusion

    Hyundai Sonata Conclusion

    In the span of just a decade, Hyundai has managed to transform the Hyundai Sonata from a second-rate cheaper alternative in the segment to a worthy contender amongst its Japanese and German counterparts. Some may be put-off by the lack of ADAS, the steep price tag or in fact the stereotypes surrounding the brand. But putting aside badge stereotype for a moment and evaluate the car objectively, you will find that the price tag is totally justifiable. 

Hyundai Sonata 2023 has total 6 color options in Malaysia: Flame Red, Midnight Black, White Cream, Nocturne Gray, Oxford Blue, Shimmering Silver.
