Car Review - Hyundai Sonata VIII 2.0 MPi Sunroof (A)
Hyundai's new seventh generation Sonata is no taxi by any means, thanks to its good looks, cosy cabin and a competent drivetrain.

The Hyundai Sonata VIII was facelifted on May 2018.

Poor value after face lift
This so-called face-lift version is essentially the same car (pre-face lift) with the same engine, transmission but the price has increased by more than 10k, without any new features. The showroom car had cloth manual seats, small LCD screen, very small 16-in rims which looks ridiculous for such a big car. Side door panels and dash had plastic, brown patterned decor that looked hideous. I have never seen such a sorry looking Sonata cabin. It looks even sadder when parked next to the well-appointed Elantra. Huge disappointment.

Review after 1.5 years of ownership
I'm writing this one and a half years after taking delivery of the car in April 2016. I've really enjoyed driving the car, especially on long trips to Cameron Highlands. The car is very well insulated from road and tire noise, and NVH intrusions. It's also very stable at high speeds (160 km/h). While Eco & Normal modes are rather sluggish, once you switch to Sport mode and really step on the accelerator, you get a different beast. Everything has been working well, nothing has broken down and I have not gone back to the AD since. The mileage is now 20,300 km, and I'm about to get it serviced outside.

My 4th Hyundai car
Read about it since 2 years ago. Research it for about a year and finally own it. Collected the LF Sonata last Saturday. After 5 days of driving it around the country, I am very satisfied with what I got. I travelled a good 500km since collected it at 25km to begin with. It seems to have a sense of soft elegance and a good presence on the road. The lane change assist and blind spot detection are very useful for busy roads such as the morning BKE towards SLE and evening BKE towards. Road noise insulation is good. This translates to more better music/sound enjoyment. All variants come with a 7" Touch screen HU with navigation system. This is an update to the official review.

Best in the class
New review after 1 year of owning the Sonata VIII. Clocked 16,000km. No regret buying this car in terms of reliability and style. Bought it at a steal! 116k COE at 61k, glad that i signed on the dotted line 1 year ago when i trade in my VW GTI MK6. Totally different class, so I'm not comparing between them. Own C200 W204, KIA Forte SX 2.0 before, Sonata VIII have the top notch interior and exterior quality. Modern DRL, basic model came with driver side electric controlled seats, auto folding mirror when you open or lock your car. Was getting 13km/L on their stock 17" Rims. Done up 20" Rays rims, k&n filter, bootlip, rear windscreen spoiler with led, philips 6000k d3s. Thats the best things you can do to touch up the already stylish exterior.
