Will Hyundai introduce a Sonata diesel in India?

Hyundai fought it out in the lower segments with more popular products with the help of diesel powered products. However, in the D2 segment, Hyundai went a step backwards.
While the earlier generation Sonata Embera & Transform did have a 2.0L diesel engine, the new Sonata came to India only with a petrol motor. This strongly affected the sales figures & the Sonata never really took off, even though it looked good.
Hyundai has already revealed the 7th generation Sonata which is 35mm longer & 30mm wider than the outgoing model. Also, styling is a bit toned down thanks to the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy.
Now, in Korea, Hyundai has revealed a new 1.7L, U2, 4-cylinder diesel motor for the Sonata which produces 139 BHP of power & 340 Nm of torque matched to a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox.
Hyundai has currently discontinued the Sonata from the Indian market, but if it does make an appearance again, will it be powered by a diesel model? Time will tell…
