A very strong Hyundai Sonata sedan, Spotted in China on the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing by Reader Lao Wei, thank you for the picture! The good Hyundai transports two giant sheets of plastic on its roof, tied up by a single cable. The Sonata sits a bit lower on the road than it normally should but seems otherwise good enough to go. Transporting plastic sheets like this is officially very forbidden in China but in reality nobody really cares, especially not in the outer regions of town.
The Hyundai Sonata is made in China by the Beijing-Hyundai joint venture. Price starts at 166.900 yuan and ends at 249.900 yuan. Engines: 2.0 and 2.4, both four-cylinder petrol.

The Hyundai ix25 Concept debuted on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show. Again a disappointment as the production version was expected. The same thing happened earlier on the show with the Kia K4 Concept, making us wonder whether all is fine with the China-operations of Hyundai-Kia.
