IwannaSportSedan Posted December 19, 2008 Share Posted December 19, 2008 Hyundai proves it isn't a fluke... They do it again. They actually can design an attractive sedan. Genesis did it once, Sonata is act 2. (could be act 3, if Azera counts before Genesis) http://www.hyundai-blog.com/index.php/2008/12/15/next-generation-hyundai-sonata-yf-renderings/ http://www.hyundai-blog.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/2010hyundaisonata.jpg http://www.hyundai-blog.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/2010hyundaiyfsonata.jpg First of all, I would like to thank Adel for these two hot looking Hyundai Sonata renderings. He has sent them to me in a hope to publish them on the blog. The renderings preview the 2010 Hyundai Sonata sedan, which is scheduled to go on sale in South Korea in the third quarter of next year. The new model will retain nothing but four wheels and two tail-pipes from the current model. Everything else will be different and developed from a scratch. Codenamed YF, the next generation Hyundai Sonata sedan will receive a completely redesigned exterior. Gone will be boring exterior shape and replaced with a four-door coupe like body style. We are expecting to see more potent diesel and gasoline engines and Hyundais first hybrid-electric system to propel the brand new Sonata sedan. Renderings we see here are the first (unofficial) preview of the 2010 Hyundai Sonata. They are based on the Genesis sedan and previous Sonata spy shots. Both look really outstanding, and if Hyundai manages to bring future production Sonata sedan as close to the one as we see here, then it will have another winner on its hands! Thanks for the tip Adel! Holy smokes, that sedan actually looks really good. If it has a 5-door bodystyle, as it looks like it could be... that would be fantastic. The Legacy has any FWD'er beat in terms of drivetrain... but I have a feeling '10 Legacy won't look quite this good, based on the frontal concept pic we've seen so far. Why is it always one or the other... Better drivetrain, OR better bodystyle. Imagine if one car got it ALL right, at one time... Legacy could be that car, if it looked somewhat like this, with Subaru hardware underneath. Heck if this were just a trifecta variant of Genesis it would be amazing. A RWD small sedan, with Genesis Coupe's turbo 4, and V6, and a price point below Genesis Sedan's bigger stature, and V6->V8 engines. But I am pretty sure it won't be that, and will be a cross-wise puller. (Transverse FWD) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
