The 8th generation Sonata (DN8) is suffering of sluggish profits. So much that Hyundai currently shut the Asan Plant line in which it’s make two times this 12 months. Even though the Grandeur is marketing like incredibly hot cakes (also designed in Asan) the Sonata previously losed its throne for the first time considering the fact that its start.
