“Stretched” Sonata targets the Chinese car market. Residents of China with special trepidation are cars with an extended wheelbase, so many automakers adapt to their preferences.

The elongated Hyundai Sonata of the new generation will reach dealerships in July 2020. Such a car differs from the standard Sonata with a wheelbase stretched by 50 mm, while the length of the sedan reaches 4,955 mm. Due to such an increase in dimensions, the manufacturer managed to increase the free space for the rear passengers.

Its long-base version differs from the global Hyundai Sonata sedan in the original layout of the virtual dashboard and multimedia – they were combined under one glass. On cars for other regional markets, these are two separate displays. Coasters appeared on the central tunnel, hidden behind a sliding curtain. You can control the “climate” in the cabin using a convenient touchscreen.

The motor range of new items for China will include a 1.5-liter 170-horsepower turbo engine, combined with a seven-speed “robot”, as well as a two-liter 240-horsepower “turbo four”, working in conjunction with 8-speed automatic transmission.

In our country, you can buy a new Hyundai Sonata in a standard body with a 150-horsepower two-liter engine, combined with a six-speed automatic transmission. The second available version is equipped with a 2.5-liter 180-horsepower engine.
