There were became known details about the new Hyundai Sonata for Russia


The new Hyundai Sonata, introduced in Korea in the last spring, is ready to enter the Russian market: a vehicle type approval (VTA) for locally assembled vehicles has appeared in the Rosstandart open database.

The manufacturer specified the Kaliningrad Avtotor plant, which produces many other Hyundai models for Russia. By the way, VTA for the Korean-made Sonata was published back in August, but such cars have not been released in the market yet, Autoreview writes.

According to the certificate, the Russian New Sonata sedans will be equipped with previous-generation aspirated engines with distributed injection. The basic 2.0-liter engine completely switched from the “Sonata” of the previous generation: the G4NA unit uses AI-95 gasoline and produces the same 150 bhp and 192 Nm, as before. And the 2.4-liter engine was replaced by an aspirated 2.5 G4KM model with 179 bhp and 232 Nm, moreover, it is certified for "92" gasoline. Thus, the engines of the new Smartstream family are installed at Russian sedans New Sonata.

The new 8-speed “automatic” transmission is not installed also at the Russian version of the model. Both motors are paired with a 6-speed gearbox, borrowed from the old sedan: even the gear ratios of the main pair remained the same. The manual gearbox is not listed. According to VTA, the new Sonata will have tires in the dimensions 215/60 R16, 215/55 R17 or 235/45 R18.

Dealers expect new Hyundai Sonata by the end of the year. Prices have not been announced yet, but they will rise obviously: cars of the past generation now cost from 1 million 380 thousand rubles to 1 million 935 thousand rubles.

As AUTOSTAT previously reported, in the first 9 months of 2019, Russian Hyundai dealers sold 5531 Hyundai Sonata cars, which is 20% higher in compare with the same period of the last year. As a result, this sedan entered the top-5 of the best-selling Hyundai models in the Russian market.
