At the unveiling of the Sonata, Ms. Fe Perez-Agudo, President and CEO of HARI said “We are about to unveil the next-generation model of a Hyundai favorite, re-designed and re-engineered down to the details for Premium comfort, safety, and performance, making for nothing less than a brilliant customer experience, in the manner of a world-class brand–a world-class product.,” She added “The all-new Sonata now comes with an 8-year or 160,000 km limited powertrain warranty-another first from Hyundai in the Philippines.”
