Hyundai offers first look at next Sonata to be built in Alabama

2020 Hyundai Sonata

Snatching some attention from the exhibits at the ongoing 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai has pulled the wraps off the eight generation Sonata sedan.

Hyundai is not saying goodbye to the midsize sedan market just yet.

Far away from the hustle and bustle of the Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai has officially dropped the images of the new-gen Sonata sedan in Seoul.

It's certainly one way to win people back from SUVs.

"A short overhang, sloping roofline and low deck lid create a balanced feel, and Hyundai's signature chrome accent now goes all the way into the hood, making it look even longer", says Hyundai design VP Sang Yup Lee. These include a 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.6 liter diesel engine while a 2.0 liter petrol electric hybrid could also be introduced.

The concept of Sensuous Sportiness is based on four principles: proportion, architecture, style and technology.

It starts up front, with the now-familiar chrome strip running from the headlights all the way to the side glazing. At the front, is what Hyundai calls its Digital Pulse Cascading Grille...the cascading grille was meant to represent molten metal (hommage to the fact that Hyundai smelts it own metal for use in its vehicles), but this new grille, the brand said, "resembles the grille of a sports auto with its rhythmic visuals, is sleekly connected to the hood, strengthening the overall perception of the front". But whatever name you might prefer, it's clear that Hyundai was serious about upgrading the current model. When turned off, they look like regular chrome trim, but when on, they produce streaks of light that look like something out of Tron. Then there's the new light architecture which the company took inspiration from the HDC-2 concept from past year. The headlamp design is new and there are a lot of creases on the sheet metal which add to the muscular stance of the new Sonata.

As a result, the new model is 30mm lower than the outgoing model, and 25mm wider.

Hyundai isn't going into too many details for the time being, but we do know the saloon has been lowered 30 millimeters and widened by 25 mm.

Inside, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata adopts a much more upscale feel, nearly looking like it could have been borrowed from sibling brand Genesis.

The sleeker shape takes after the Le Fil Rouge concept. It sports a mid positioned touchscreen infotainment system, well crafted AC vents, multi function steering wheel with integrated controls and instrument console with a digital MID.
