In terms of power, the new car will be equipped with 1.5T and 2.0T turbocharged engines, the former with a maximum power of 125 kilowatts and the latter with a maximum power of 184 kilowatts, matching a seven-gear double-clutch transmission or an eight-gear automatic transmission.


Netizens have different views on Sonata's design.


Sonata is a medium-sized car owned by Hyundai Motor. Beijing Hyundai Motor Co., Ltd. was established on October 18, 2002. it became the first Sino-foreign joint venture project in the field of automobile production after China's entry into WTO. A month later, the fifth-generation Sonata went on sale as Beijing Hyundai's first model, priced between 17.9 yuan and 265000 yuan. In April 2011, Beijing Hyundai launched the eighth generation Sonata, with a price range of 16.69-249900 yuan. By July 2020, the 10th generation Sonata will also be officially on the market, with a price range of 16.18-205800 yuan. As a replacement model, the overall shape of the new car is younger, offering a power combination of 1.5T engine + 7DCT double clutch transmission and 2.0T engine + 8AT gearbox.


It should be noted that as a medium-sized car owned by Hyundai, Sonata's performance in the domestic market is very mediocre. According to the data, from 2015 to 2022, Sonata sold 64910, 35998, 12760, 6693, 13483, 9667 and 5138 vehicles, respectively. Of course, as an important model of Beijing Hyundai, the decline in sales of Sonata also directly affects the overall sales of Beijing Hyundai.

Since its establishment in 2002, Beijing Hyundai has a history of 21 years, and before 2016, Beijing Hyundai occupied the domestic passenger car market with high performance-to-price ratio. According to the data, sales from 2013 to 2016 were 1.03 million, 1.16 million, 1.06 million and 1.14 million respectively, and 2016 was the highlight of its development. however, after entering 2017, its sales began to decline and showed a downward trend for five consecutive years, with sales of 755659, 782163, 685126, 384782, 359851 and 245,405 respectively from 2017 to 2022.


As we all know, Sonata locates medium-sized cars, and Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Nissan Teana and Volkswagen Passat are all strong competitors, of which Honda Accord has completed its replacement in May this year. Toyota Camry will also make its debut at the 2023 Guangzhou Auto Show on November 17, which will further impact Sonata's development position in the domestic market with the replacement of new cars. At the same time, the rise of independent brands has also increased a lot of development pressure on Sonata, such as the Mingjue MG7, which is also positioned as a medium-sized car with 1.5T and 2.0T engines and sells for 11.98-169800 yuan. It will not be easy for Sonata to gain a foothold in the domestic market in the future.

According to the latest figures, Beijing Hyundai sold 194101 vehicles from January to October 2023, with the top three models being the Elantra, Tusheng L and Beijing Hyundai ix35, with sales of 86073, 40708 and 24354, respectively, compared with 2587 for Sonata.
