A harmony
between the visible and invisible
A stylish exterior design lets the inner beauty shine through.
Experience a new driving sensation.
Exterior
A design aesthetic meets refined
Fluidic Sculpture 2.0
The Sonata's beauty is the confident, quiet kind. No need to show off.
  • Front

    The contrast of the sturdy sculpture at the bottom with the bold wing-type grille
    reflects the Sonata's confidence and charisma.

    moreRadiator grille
    moreHID headlamps
    moreFront fog lamps
    • Radiator grille The radiator grille makes a statement that is bold, forthright and uniquely Hyundai. Hexagonal and three-dimensional, it adds a touch of glamour while blending with the bodywork.
    • HID headlamps High intensity discharge (HID) headlamps illuminate the road with a crisp light more intense than that of other headlamps while using less power. Their slim design is a natural continuation of the Sonata's belt line molding.
    • Front fog lamps Newly designed and located below the bumper, the front fog lamps help you see better in bad weather while looking good, too.
  • Side

    It's all in the lines. The strong, main character line is made
    complete with a graceful and sophisticated side character line.

    • Panorama sunroof With the panorama sunroof, you can enjoy not only a bright and airy environment but also a sporty and modern exterior style.
    • Welcome light door handles Lights on the inside of the door handles allow you to easily locate the handles in the dark, while providing a touch of elegance.
    • Wheels A variety of wheel choices ensures the driving experience you want. High-performance 16", 17" and wider 17" alloy wheels accentuate the Sonata's stability and sporty look. 18" alloy wheels deliver the ultimate in performance and prestige. 16" steel wheels come as the standard.
  • Rear

    "High-tech" and "progressive" best describe the rear design, which includes
    polished lamps full of character and a sporty bumper.

    moreLED high-mounted stop lamp
    (HMSL)
    moreLED rear combination lamps
    moreDual muffler
    • LED high-mounted stop lamp (HMSL) Drivers behind you will notice your braking and keep their distance thanks to the LED high-mounted stop lamp (HMSL), which is located in the eye line of those behind.
    • LED rear combination lamps LED rear combination lamps that minimize energy consumption create a simple yet modern rear image. Excellent visibility from that angle reduces the possibility of a rear-end collision.
    • Dual muffler The aggressively shaped muffler tail trim provides a sense of high performance. The dual version multiplies this feeling twice over.

  • Chrome-coated outside handles
    Chrome-coated outside handles add to the luxury of the Sonata's profile and give you an easy grip. Lights on the inside of the door handles elegantly guide your hand.

  • Outside mirror repeaters
    Outside mirror repeaters not only improve visibility and promote safer driving, they lend a modern edginess to the vehicle's side.

  • Puddle lamps
    This is a car made with you and your passengers in mind. Take the puddle lamps. They light the way, inviting you in.
Interior

A long-established comfort and grace
Just focus on driving. The Sonata's perks and comforts will make themselves known.
  • 01 Innovative driver seat

    We studied body pressure distribution and made innovations
    in design, quality, materials, touchability and manufacturing.
    The result is exceptional comfort and less fatigue, especially
    on long-distance drives.

    • Head rest : Low elastic slab foam
    • Leaning area : Soft
    • Side supports : Increased depth
    • Back rest : Firm
    • Seat : Increased pad density
    Close
  • 02 Steering wheel

    With a steering wheel rim that's 1 cm thinner than its predecessor,
    the new rim gives you a better grip. A shape adjusted for greater
    hand comfort also increases handling stability in high speeds.

    • STEERING WHEEL PROFILE Sixteen months in design, the steering wheel varies in width and features an enlarged thumb rest, for improved grip and a more sporty feel.
    • AUDIO REMOTE
      CONTROL
      For enhanced safety, the audio switch is positioned for thumb control only.
    • TRIP / CRUISE CONTROL
      SWITCH
      Like the audio remote control switch, the trip & cruise control switch is operated by using only the thumb.
    Close
  • 03 T-shaped center fascia

    The T-shaped center fascia is driver-oriented, top to bottom. Switches, screens and controls are positioned right where
    your hand, eyes and fingertips expect them to be. Having been transformed from a Y-type to a T-type, the center fascia now faces
    the driver, enhancing driver safety and visibility.

    • Applying the height of cluster and monitor display for optional visibility (Arranging it on the same line)
    • Arranging the switches and display considering optimal distance
    • Driver-centered layout
      (Center fascia’s angle in the direction of drivers)

RIDE & HANDLING
  • Advanced high strength steel (AHSS) 51% of the Sonata's body is made of an Advanced high strength steel
    (AHSS), which is twice as strong as an ordinary steel plate. This means
    better energy absorption, even distribution of collision forces and minimal
    distortion. Most of all, it means better passenger protection.
  • Powertrain An advanced powertrain delivers exhilarating
    performance. Front and rear suspension designs
    enhance steering response, handling capability and
    stability. High torque at low and middle engine
    speeds increases the acceleration response and
    strengthens driving performance.
  • Motor driven power-steering (MDPS) With improved Motor driven power-steering (MDPS), you get
    smooth and stable handling, better responses at different speeds.
  • Noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) Bask in the quiet with improved vehicle chassis rigidity and soundproofing
    materials that reduce road and engine noise.
  • 6-speed automatic transmission
    The 6-speed automatic transmission provides high-precision responses, silky-smooth shifts and outstanding durability.
  • Front MacPherson strut type suspension
    The front suspension features newly designed wheel geometry and more bearing strength, focusing on retaining turning stability and providing a firm and comfortable ride.
  • Rear multi-link suspension
    With optimized rear wheel geometry, the dual lower arm evenly distributes lateral force and enhances stability during high-speed driving and turning.
  • Drive mode control system
    Press the button on the center console to choose from 3 driving modes – normal, sports and eco – depending on your mood and the driving conditions.

  • Blind spot detection (BSD)

    Radars on both sides of the rear bumper make up for your blind spot by detecting vehicles
    between your rear-view and outside mirrors. They also warn you when a vehicle is approaching
    quickly from behind.

  • Electronic stability control (ESC)

    Sensing steering wheel movements in relation to wheel rotation, Electronic stability control
    (ESC) takes care of the engine, braking system and steering during sudden braking and turning
    to keep you from skidding.

  • Static bending lights (SBL)

    See better on a curve with Static bending lights (SBL) that increase visibility when turning.
    It provides illumination for previous blind spots when making turns for greater visibility.

  • Hill-start assist control (HAC)

    Hill-start assist control (HAC) lets you get a safe start on an uphill incline without rolling
    backwards.

    keeps the driver and front passengers
    refreshed in hot weather, but lets the air
    temperature drop about 5.5% more than before.

    Automatically sensing rainfall amount, a
    rain sensor and aero blade wipers control
    wiper speed and keep the wipers from
    being lifted at high speeds.
  • Connectivity (AUX and USB)
    Stay networked with AUX and iPod con-
    nectivity. A USB port lets you plug in an
    iPod and other mobile storage devices so
    that you can enjoy your favorite music.
