New Hyundai Sonata goes for a song

Hyundai's new Sonata will cost the same as the outgoing range when it is launched at the end of this month. It will be available in three versions, with 2.0-litre 16-valve and 3.0-litre V6 engines.

Starting at £13,399 before delivery for the entry-level Gsi and rising to £17,999 for the range-topper, Hyundai says the new car offers enhanced roadholding, handling and comfort to mount a serious challenge to the volume competitors for the first time. In the middle of the range, the 2.0-litre CD gets a four speed automatic transmission as standard for £16,298 - the same price as the previous car which offered an auto gearbox as an option.

The launch coincides with a confidence-boosting sales performance by Hyundai, which broke its previous August record by 25% last month. The Korean manufacturer says fleet sales soared by 61%.
