Car companies are doing whatever to push their petrol cars in the country. Maruti is offering huge discounts on Maruti Alto and other cars; Chevrolet is doing the same with offers on Chevrolet Spark and Beat Petrol and so on and so forth. Hyundai is doing the same with Hyundai Eon and other cars. But this Korean car maker is adopting an aggressive strategy for its Hyundai Sonata. Since the car is available on in petrol version currently, Hyundai is offering a Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone free with the car. Notably, the Sonata Diesel version is expected early next year. The Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone price is around Rs 30k and it straightaway means that the car maker is offering a discount of Rs 30 k on the Sonata.

Thus by offering the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone with the Sonata, Hyundai proposes to upgrade the class as well as style state of the car buyer. Currently being offered in manual and automatic versions the car is a straight rival of Nissan Teana, Skoda Superb, Volkswagen Passat and Honda Accord. Honda too is offering discounts to the tune of over Rs 30k to Rs 50k but that is on the small car Honda Brio and the most happening Honda City sedan. The current offer on the Sonata is believed to set in craze among the luxury car buyers as the car in itself is a class apart car and now the Samsung Galaxy Note adds to the class.

The Sonata car is in its second innings in the country and after a not so enthusiastic start, the car is taking recourse of offers to sell well. But the real problem with sales is the absence of the diesel variant. Some experts believe that why Hyundai has delayed launch of the diesel variant in India is still a mystery specially when the market is clearly indicating that whether it is a small car, SUV or luxury car, a diesel variant and automatic version are a must.
