Hyundai unveiled the Hybrid Sedan car Sonata at the 2016 Indian Auto Show. The car inherits Hyundai’s fluid 2.0 design details that give you a clear and bright vision.

The next-generation Sonata is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with a 360-volt electric motor and also connected to a six-speed automatic gearbox. This combination produces 202 hp at 6,000 rpm. The combination of new carbon footprints, technology, and power makes the Sonata plug-in hybrid engine 21% more powerful than the previous version.
Mercedes-Benz A-class Sedan
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the A-Class sedan and is expected to go on sale in international markets by the end of this year. The automaker has also revealed an LWB version of the new sedan car, which will only be sold in the Chinese market.
Although Mercedes has confirmed that the A-Class sedan will also be coming to India, it is not yet known if it will be in the standard version or the LWB version (which is currently exclusive to China). We expect it to be the latter given the popularity of the E-Class LWB in the country.
In the international market, the A-Class sedan cars available with two engine options. The A200 variant is powered by a 1330 cc turbocharged petrol engine that generates 163 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. On the other hand, the A 180 d gets a 1.5-liter turbocharged diesel engine generating 116 hp and 260 Nm, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Since the A-Class sedan will be imported from the country’s CBU, we expect the Indian spec vehicle to run the same range of petrol and diesel engines.
Speaking of pricing, the German carmaker has already confirmed that the new A-Class will be priced between CLA and C-Class in the Indian market. Therefore, expect a price of around Rs 35 lakh. After the launch, the A-Class sedan will take the likes of the Audi A3. It will also compete with the BMW 1 Series sedan, should the automaker decide to launch an entry-level sedan here.
