If you were not aware that Hyundai has launched the all new Sonata in India, we don’t blame you.

Hyundai’s first Sonata was quite a successful product in the Indian market owing to its Mercedes-looking front fascia. However, the later attempts to revive the Sonata brand were a bit half hearted with the...
