So the rumors call for a 2.4 liter 4 cyl with about 155HP and a 3.3 liter V6 with about 210HP. Interesting pick of displacement. 3.3 liters. Toyota/Lexus picked it too but still...

Hyundai Sonata


hough redesigned only in 2001, Korean manufacturer Hyundai is already preparing the launch of yet a new generation of its mid-size saloon: following rumours, the new Sonata is due for presentation at the 2004 Geneva Show. With the front virtually undisguised, the car had been put through an extensive heat-testing programme in the Arizona dessert all through this summer.

From what's visible so far, the new Sonata will get a much more angular appearance, bringing it into line with the rest of the range and giving it the adult appearance the current model is lacking.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder entry-level engine of today's car will make it into the new model again, and also the 2.7-litre V6 producing 178 HP will be used for the new Sonata. Added, however, will be the 3.0-litre V6, tweaked to 200 HP. A diesel engine is not in sight, though rumours suggest, Hyundai would be working on a four-cylinder common rail turbodiesel developing around 130 HP... @Automedia

Now all they need to do is put more horses into the Tibureon. That car is soo damn slow and its a V6. But this car doesnt look too bad. Kind of looks like a 98 Camry from the front.

Looks like Hyundai is continuing the great work. Nice interior design. I hope the quality is there as well.

Exterior looks nice, but I don't like the interior design. They're definitely moving up though.

That car is dead on target for what people want out of that segmen (styling wise)... wow, Hyundai's doing big things. The exterior and interior looks great. Like Gav said, I hope that quality remain's high. The styling's definitely better than the Malibu's. I wonder how much hp they're going to squeeze out of the engines. It's sure to be a great value. Good job Hyundai.
