Hyundai Motor Company is preparing to unveil its all-new mid-sized sedan, codenamed YF, ahead of the car’s official launch on Sept 10th in the Korean domestic market.

The new YF will be fitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission and delivers excellent performance through its 2.0 litre Theta-II petrol engine.  Delivering 7.8 litres per 100 km*, it achieves the lowest fuel consumption in its segment in Korea.

The rendering preview features a coupe like body style and exudes a dynamic image.  The front side communicates an image of strength through a wide radiator grille and sharp-edged headlamps.

The flowing coupe-like lines of the YF express Hyundai’s “fluidic sculpture” design language, a new design direction that will play a pivotal role in enhancing the brand - first seen in the ix35 compact SUV launched last month in South Korea.  Hyundai is confident that the new YF, equipped with the company's latest technologies, will continue the long string of global successes earned by the NF Sonata over the years.

Since the launch of the very first generation Sonata in October 1985 in Korea, 4.45 million units of Sonata have been sold worldwide.  In 2004, Sonata earned the highest ranking in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Survey in the Entry Midsize Car category.

“The all-new YF sedan is a car we very excited about,” said Kevin McCann, Hyundai’s Director of Sales and Marketing.  “The YF promises outstanding fuel economy combined with cutting edge looks and we are confident that the car will attract customers seeking style and sophistication to the Hyundai brand.”

Note: *Australian performance figures to be released at local Australian launch.
