The federal government has announced its plan to reduce the price of cars. Because of the tax rebates offered, the cheapest options would not be around R$62,000. But it is possible to pick up a used, more qualified one with space for a lower price: Hyundai HB20S.
The sedan arrived on the market shortly after the launch of the hatchback, in April 2013. The HB20S boasted a sportier look, quite different from the sedans of the time that seemed to have a prominent trunk grafted onto the bodywork, such as the Renault. Clio Sedan and Peugeot 207 Passion.
