Finally they come close to Honda and Toyota in terms of interiors - an important decision factor of this segment!

Nice looking Interiors - If they sell this car here at the current price, I feel Hyundai will sell a lot many Sonata's more than they are currently selling.

The interiors look really nice and modern compared to the current one. But, the grill treatment reminds me of the Elantra. IMHO, they should retain the current grill. Looks much smarter.

That's what I thought too. The front grille kinda spoils the look... seems like a cross between the Elantra and the Santro!
Interiors look top notch.
What about the powerplant, transmission etc?

Nice interiors, but then again, in D segment even if they have a top notch car, people will still ignore it for Brand Value.

Bang on! They can upgrade the interiors as much as they like but they dont have the brand traction to challenge the Hondas and the Toyotas in the luxury segment.
