It was 11th auto expo where I saw the Sonata first and literally got stunned by its aesthetic appeal. So beautiful were the exteriors that I spent around half an hour just to get the complete glimpse of the whole vehicle. Although the fluidic design statement can be clearly felt in the new versions of Hyundai’s cars; it is Sonata that impressed me the most. So much so, that at that, very moment I decided to buy it. 4 months down the line since Sonata arrived in my garage; I still have to come out of its beautiful mirage. Still walking around the car is like feeding your eyes and even soul. Each and every proportion of Sonata is perfect and all dimensions culminate to give a strong road presence to this master piece. Although many cars are impressive in design language though what makes Sonata to stand out of the crowd is its proportionate rear design. Even the tail of the car is designed in line with the overall shape and size theme. Another exceptional feature of Sonata is its equipment list. Car is rated 5-STAR NCPA and features a long list of safety provisions. In addition to six airbags, ESP and all around disk brakes, Sonata features the unique cooled seat arrangement which has literally proved its utility in this hot and humid summer. There are 10 ways by which you can adjust driver seat while front passenger is offered with 4 ways utility to adjust his comfort. Equipment inside consists of 6 CD changer with Aux-in and USB utility port. Rear view camera along with electrically adjustable OVRMs’ enhances the practicality quotient with touch of convenience. Also start stop button and passive entry system dispenses the need to put key in its slot every time you are ready to move. Cabin of the car with its black and beige colour combination delights you like its exterior design. Space is generous inside; even the width inside on offer is Innova rivaling. But that sadly doesn’t get converted into usable room when it comes to rear seat. At its best,rear seat is capable of adjusting only two persons in comfort though trunk space will give you a little chance to complain about. Although there is little to doubt about Hyundai’s intention to make Sonata’s cabin a super luxury one; engine department has failed to impress me. I chose automatic transmission then as I felt it was more comfortable option but now I am not very happy with the decision to go with the auto gearbox. Sonata comes with 6-speed auto transmission which is not a very responsive unit. Lack of power can be felt clearly and auto gearbox takes its own time to react. I was not expecting such performance from a car that costs me about 21 lakh. Another point to moan on is the handling of the car. Though the ride quality is very good as it is aimed for chauffeur driven segment, handling department has been neglected thoroughly. Car absorbs the undulations and potholes with aplomb but tends to roll heavily on sharp curves. Rear part of the car threatens to go out of the line heavily every time you corner it hard and this makes the Sonata average handler. If Hyundai is Listening can they get a 1. More responsive gear box 2. And improve handling
