Sonata Ride & Handling
The 2WD Hyundai Sonata 2023 prioritizes comfort over sportiness. The car may have a sporty exterior appearance, but it's designed for a smooth, comfortable ride rather than speed. Its handling is stable and its suspension effectively dampens road bumps, resulting in good overall ride quality.
The Hyundai Sonata 2023 is easy to maintain, however, as it's a newly launched model, its auto parts may not yet be widely available.
The Sonata is the first locally assembled D-segment sedan in Pakistan, so it has no direct competition. However, it may impact the sales of two imported D-segment sedans, the Honda Accord
and Toyota Camry
The Honda Accord shares many features with the Sonata and is larger in size, but it is also a luxury car that is much more expensive, making the Sonata a more attractive option.
The Toyota Camry, also a luxury car, costs twice as much as the Sonata.
Hyundai Sonata 8th Generation in Pakistan ranges from 2021 to 2023. 8th Generation Hyundai Sonata model variants includes 2.0, 2.5. 8th Generation new car minimum price starts from 10329000 Rs. while maximum price goes till 11280000 Rs. at that time.
