    The current-gen Sonata Transform failed to strike the right chord with customers. Hyundai wants to change that with this all-new car that is also known as the i45 in some markets.

    The new 2012 Hyundai Sonata is based on the same Hyundai “fluidic” design language featuring re-shaped front and rear fascias with a deeper air dam, extended rocker panels along with lower drag wheels allowing the air to flow around the body with less resistance.

    Powering the new Sonata will be a 198 Bhp-250 Nm, 2.4 Liter petrol engine which makes use of Hyundai’s gas direct injection technology to boost power, fuel economy and engine response while cutting down on tail pipe emissions. The possibility of a diesel engine seems unlikely considering the fact that internationally the Sonata/i45 comes equipped with only a petrol one. There have however been rumors of the 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine from the Santa-Fe making it into the Sonata’s hood, but much of that is still unclear.

    The new Hyundai Sonata is expected to be manufactured at Hyundai India’s plant in Chennai thereby allowing Hyundai to position the new sedan competitively at around Rs. 18 lakh. The new Sonata will be taking on the likes of the upcoming 2012 Toyota Camry, the Honda Accord and the Skoda Superb although the lack of a diesel engine might turn out be a slight hitch for the new Sonata.
