A Hyundai Sedan To Suit Every Pocket

By: Kamesh G

There's a lot more to a sedan than 4 doors and a boot. Start shopping around for one and you'll soon find that space, quality, safety, style and above all, value for money will put Hyundai at the top of your list every time, irrespective of your budget. Three sedans in three different market segments complete the Hyundai sedan line-up. And with price tags ranging from approximately R160k - R310k, you're sure to find your match.

Hyundai Accent - best budget buy
Most affordable of the three is the Hyundai Accent. A far cry from the first generation to hit our shores many moons ago, the latest Accent is quite a looker with a whole lot of extras you'd not expect at the price. Three models with two different specification levels complete the Accent range. All are fitted with an extremely fuel efficient1.6L petrol powertrain that delivers a zesty 91kW of power at 6300rpm and 156Nm of torque at 4200rpm while buyers have a choice between a smooth-shifting 5-speed manual gearbox and a responsive 4-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include airbags and ABS to take care of your safety concerns with air conditioning and electric windows adding comfort to your drive.

Hyundai Elantra - 2012 Car of the Year
The title certainly says it all. The striking Hyundai Elantra has wowed the critics and public alike on all continents to take the coveted award in South Africa as well as North America in 2012. The Elantra range offers a choice of three petrol-driven models - a manual 1.6 GLS as well as a 1.8 GLS with manual and automatic transmission options. Beyond a whistle-worthy design, top end safety measures and luxurious finishes, the Hyundai Elantra also offers a host of premium features at your fingertips such as rear parking sensors, rain sensing wipers, auto locking doors and dual zone air conditioning.

Hyundai Sonata - the connoisseur's choice
The Hyundai Sonata is undoubtedly in a class of its own. The luxury sedan boasts sleek styling, refined finishes and top-end features at a price that will have you looking twice. But it's not just the Sonata's head-turning design that will impress, under the hood it hides a 2.4L petrol powerhouse that delivers a mighty 131kW of power and 228Nm of torque, coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission with step-gate shift pattern. Other advanced extras like its8-way powered adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support, a quick start/stop button, Hill Start Assist and cruise control confirm that the Sonata has truly set the benchmark for quality.
