New diesel Sonata at Rs 15,71,656

June 27, 2007 16:53 IST

Hyundai Motor India Ltd on Wednesday launched a new automatic variant of its diesel powered luxury sedan Sonata Embera CRDi, priced at Rs 15,71,656 (ex-showroom Delhi).

The company had launched a diesel variant of Sonanta Embera with manual transmission earlier this year. "Hyundai was first to drive in the successful CRDi technology in India which was far more superior to its contemporaries. And the superior diesel technology validates Hyundai's technology edge in the diesel revolution," HMIL managing director H S Lheem said in a statement.

The new Sonata Embera CRDi automatic has 4-Speed H-Matic transmission which offers two modes -- traditional fully automatic or a shift that provides the driver with finger-tip gear selection.

The new Sonata Embera CRDi automatic is powered by a two-litre engine, which produces 142 bhp power.

With the launch of the new variant, Sonata Embera will now be available in four variants, including both petrol and diesel.
