Corolla does not give air bags. period.
So is Fusion when all the fusions sold outside in Europe have air bags.
What? Toyota Corolla has always had SRS airbags for driver and co-passenger from day one (June/ July 2003). You must mean curtain airbags etc., but then, even the new Hyundai Sonata Embera which is a more expensive car than the Toyota Corolla doesn't offer those.

Not in premium segment cars.
Could be that even 6 -7 lakh priced cars are also for another strata of the masses .. and that the additional goodies might take the price of the same car to beyond 8 lakhs ..

This topic has been discussed to death, here the new Sonata is known as Hyundai Accord.

Hyundai is always Hyundai.

We dont expect any improvement from them.

They should've rather made foot***** than cars.


A company which does'nt give or take respect in anyway.

I'll carry on typing baddies about Hyundai, But what's the point? Hyundai does'nt care for nice car admirers. They try to make stupids out of anybody.

Oh Hyundai PR department,
Please But Please, Improve your marketing style and We'll start buying your cars.

Hyundai has always been like this and seems like they will never learn, i don't understand whom are they trying to fool with these foolish comparisons.
