Hyundai Sonata 2.4
Hyundai Sonata 2.4 Hyundai Sonata 2.4
A solid and at the same time elegant, and not at all heavy appearance. In the carefully decorated spacious interior, a rich set of options. In the configuration "Prestige" the driver's seat - even with the memory and passenger electric adjustments. Of course, two liters is a lot, especially for a modern engine.
I remember that in the group test (ZR, 2011, No. 2), such a car left a favorable impression. And yet, the large, roomy sedan has a reserve of “two glasses”, and with it - 28 hp. and 30 N • m obviously will not hurt.

178 hp engine not just a giant, but accelerates the Sonata confidently and even persistently. When you press the pedal to the floor, the car growls imposingly and even gives the sensation so important for many people when it presses its back into a chair. Still to speed it all up …
The box switches later than you expect, and even later than you would like. The point is not in some racing ambitions, but in the very real need for safe acceleration to fill a vacancy on an almost high-speed highway.

Perhaps if you drive a car for a long time and sprinkle it with manual shifts, the adaptive gearbox will become faster. But even now, she did not demand anything supernatural from her. In addition, with less extreme accelerations at medium speeds, the unit behaves well - it works quietly and quickly.
I tried to switch by hand - and realized: it makes no sense. This is the thing! So it is appropriate to behave a solid prestigious sedan. Moreover, to the 2.4-liter engine, in addition to the elegant interior, moderately stiff, but tight suspensions, reliable and understandable from the first touch of the brake, are quite suitable.

The difference in the price of cars with 2- and 2.4-liter engines in comparable trim levels is 50, 000 rubles. For 400 cubes and almost 30 hp, in my opinion, a little. Especially when you consider the class and the initial price of the Sonata.
