Pictures of the new Hyundai i45 with test number plates and no disguise have been doing the rounds on the web for a while now.  A white coloured car has been seen regularly around Chennai for sometime now.  The car has been carrying the i45 monograms.  In some markets the car is also called the Sonata.  In India, the Sonata name has had mixed fortunes.  The first Sonata launched in India was kitsch of styling elements from Mercedes Benz and Jaguar and sold reasonably well.  When Hyundai went for a new design that was more understated, the cars sales plummeted. Now the new Sonata incorporating the fluidic sculpture is likely to come during the festival season towards the end of the year.  Whether it will be called Sonata or i45 remains to be seen.
