The Hyundai i45, which will replace the Hyundai Sonata, is set to arrive here in Australia in the second quarter of this year.

Powered by an all-new 2.4-litre direct injection petrol engine, the new Hyundai i45 will develop 150kW of power and will be mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

Based on overseas reports, the new mid-size sedan will boast a fuel consumption figure of just 6.8L/100km highway and 10.6L/100km around town.

Although Hyundai Australia hasn’t yet released final specification details, we’re hoping the R-series 2.0-litre diesel from the new Hyundai ix35 finds its way under the bonnet.

In the US, standard equipment includes heated front and rear seats, Bluetooth connectivity, ESC, ABS, tyre-pressure monitoring and on all levels of trim, touchscreen satellite navigation.

CarAdvice will keep you posted on any more details as they come to hand.
