Hyundai Sonata/Hyundai Moinca (New EF). 2001 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1836, 1975, 1997, 2351 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 2493, 2656 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Nose-and-tail job on EF brought a more balanced, substantial look to Sonata. Same engines for Korea, though different units for export, with 2·4 four and 2·7 V6. Adequate power on fours; better on sixes. Some body roll though above-average ride. Roomy, good-value sedan. Twinned with Kia Optima, which shared the centre section. Korean production ended 2004, though Russian production continued to 2010. Chinese model appeared alongside NF, then YF; facelifted in 2010, renamed Sonata Moinca (not Monica), with 1975 cm³ four. Sonata tag disappeared from marketing for Moinca in 2012.
