All-new 2020 Hyundai Sonata open for booking, starts from RM 20x,xxx 01

Just last week, the media was given a preview of the all-new 2020 Hyundai Sonata and it seems that Malaysia might be the first RHD market to have the D-segment sedan.

Now, Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has announced that the all-new Sonata is opened for bookings at its website.

This gives Malaysians an opportunity to try an alternative to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord with a bit of premium kimchi flavour. However, Hyundai has quoted the prices of the all-new Sonata would start at ‘RM 20x,xxx’.

At that price, it is much higher than the Accord, Camry, but slots in between a few variants of the Mazda 6. Of note, both the Mazda 6 and Toyota Camry are also fully imported and yet the Hyundai Sonata is quoted slightly above RM 200,000.

What are the specs and equipment?

The all-new Sonata is powered by a 2.5-litre Smartstream G2.5 MPI naturally-aspirated petrol engine (180 PS/232 Nm) which is mated to a 6-speed automatic that drives the front wheels. This will be the only variant on offer.

It will be equipped with LED headlights and taillights, an 8-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, Qi wireless charging pad, and 6 airbags.

Model shown is the Nexo but it functions similarly to the Sonata

It does lack in Hyundai’s SmartSense ADAS suite but you do get Blind-spot View Monitor which works similar to Honda’s LaneWatch. Unlike LaneWatch which displays the video feed from the passenger side-wing mirror onto the infotainment display, Hyundai’s solution displays the video feed from cameras on both the left and right side of the car onto the digital instrument cluster.
