South Korean automaker Hyundai has revealed the all-new Sonata ahead of its global debut at the next month’s New York Motor Show. If media reports to be believed, the Sonata will make replace the i45 sedan in the Australian market which was phased out last year.
The new Hyundai Sonata share its design cues with the all new Genesis sedan. It looks sharper and appealing than the current generation model. The 2015 Sonata gets a single-frame premium 3D hexagonal grille while refined swage lines on its flanks and futuristic features at its rear contribute to its dynamic shape. Powerful light-emitting diode (LED) daytime running lights and striking rear light clusters add to the new model’s sophisticated appearance.
Dimensionally, the new Sonata is 30mm wider and 35mm longer, and it has 20mm longer wheelbase than the current generation model. Hyundai claimed that the new Sonata benefits from improved interior ergonomics, resulting in a completely driver-focused cabin that comes with better material and advanced new technologies to enhance its appeal.
In order to reduce the NVH (Noise, Vibration, harshness) levels, the all new Sonata features the optimized suspension damping that gives occupants a soft, silent and comfortable experience. Under the hood, the 2015 Sonata is likely to get the same 2.4-litre GDi petrol engine that churns out a max power output of 198bhp and 250Nm of top torque. It is also expected to feature a 2-litre engine producing 165bhp and 210Nm of top torque.
