New Hyundai Sonata launch at Expo

28th Dec 2011 8:16 pm

Along with the Sonata launch, the striking new Veloster coupe will also be on display.


Hyundai’s striking design efforts of late should make the Korean carmaker’s hall a huge attraction. Treat yourself to the absolutely stunning Veloster coupe, another class example of Hyundai’s fluidic design language. Oodles of sex appeal aside, the Veloster has a 1.6-litre petrol engine developing 138bhp and a raft of safety features like ESC, ABS, TCS, Brake Assist and six airbags. The Veloster sports an unusual 1+2-door layout where the passenger side has an additional rear suicide door.

Hyundai will also unveil a new concept car to the world called the HND-7. The company hasn’t revealed any information yet about it so you are in for a big surprise. The new Sonata that’s being geared up to replace the current-gen Transform gets the perfect stage for its India debut. Arguably the best looking Hyundai to date, it should be lapped up by executive car buyers in India. It’s not one for the enthusiast though, so don’t expect corner-carving capability, but rather chauffeur-driven comfort instead.

The second surprise from Hyundai will be a new SUV concept. It’s in the Rs 8-10 lakh range and is likely to be based on one of Hyundai’s existing platforms. The company wants to plug every gap in its portfolio so this Expo is a peek into Hyundai’s not-so-distant future in India.
