2010 Hyundai Sonata / i40, Tuscon and i30 Facelift Shown on Korean TV

The Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), South Korea's premium public broadcaster, recently aired a program that focused on Hyundai's R&D facility located in Namyang, Korea. Among other things, the show revealed a prototype model of the next-generation Hyundai Sonata undergoing testing as well as a camouflaged 2010 Hyundai Tuscon and a designers sketch depicting what appears to be a proposal for facelifted i30 hatchback. The new Sonata that will be called i40 in Europe and other international markets, is due to arrive in Hyundai's dealerships by early-2010.

Based on a newly developed platform, the 2010 Sonata will be offered with an array of engines including Hyundai's new 2.0- and 2.2-liter turbo diesels with outputs of 184HP and 200HP respectively, as well as a 2.0-litre petrol engine available in naturally aspirated and turbocharged versions.

Se il nuovo modello che andrà a sostituire la “Sonica” si ispirerà fortemente alla “Genesis”, sarà certamente un’auto bella e ben rifinita. Io se fossi nei dirigenti Hyundai cercherei di importare in Europa proprio la “Genesis”, che è una gran bella auto. Ma se proprio ciò non è possibile, ben venga un’ammiraglia un pò “più piccola” che segua lo stesso stile. Naturalmente con almeno un motore diesel di riferimento!
Sarò curioso di vederlo questo nuovo modello!

i'm not a big fan of car facelifts. that's just a waste of money, they would better make new models
