2015 Hyundai Sonata Revealed in NYC
Apr 16, 2014 - 11:13 AM - by Salizar


Hyundai has refreshed the Sonata for 2015 and it showed off the Sonata's new looks at a private event in New York.

The face lifted Sonata is a bit longer and wider than the 214 model, and it also conforms more to Hyundai's latest Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language as is evidenced by a revamped front end, revised bumper and new headlights. At the back, the Sonata has some new tail lamps and a redrawn trunk lid, while additional paint colors and alloy wheel designs round out the updates.

The still to be revealed Sonata Hybrid should get its won styling, including model-specific trim pieces and a revised version of the 18-inch Hyper Silver alloy wheels available on the current SE trim level.



Moving to the inside of the Sonata, it has a more squared-off design that allows for a larger center console and a more convenient switchgear placement. The 2015 Sonata has a TFT screen mounted in between the gauges, and Hyundai's latest infotainment system will be available on all but the lowest trim levels.

The engines for the Sonata remain the same as before -- a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Both engines have been upgraded for stronger low-end response, though output figures remain the same.

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata is slated to arrive in US showrooms in the US next fall.

Check Out the Cars of the Future
Mar 18, 2014 - 5:46 PM - by AutoGuide.com
As close to an auto-industry crystal ball as any single page on the internet can be, we've launched a new Future Cars section dedicated to reporting on the latest in what's coming next.

There's an old belief that concept cars never make it to production. On the contrary, they almost always do; they just often change enough over time, evolving significantly from wild design studies to more practical people movers. The new AutoGuide Future Cars pages will let you track the development of your favorite model or keep tabs on what new an exciting cars are coming down the pipe.

From early rumors to spy photos our Future Cars pages will follow the development of highly-anticipated new vehicles until they reach the market sometimes years from now. We aim to give you the straight facts and plenty of enticing rumors on exactly what we do know about these cars, along with photo galleries of concept cars and, of course, video previews of the near-production vehicles before all the hard specs have been confirmed.

Next Gen Sonata
Feb 14, 2014 - 10:10 AM - by sonny
It has been interesting watching Hyundai grow up. when they implemented their new design philosophy they term Fluidic Sculpture a few years back they launched an all out assault on most if not all market segments they play in. But now as Fluidic Sculpture ages and competitors have either become all new or sort of new its time for Hyundai to reshuffle the deck chairs.

We have already seen the new direction of Hyundais design language in 2013 with the initial debut of the 2015 Hyundai Genesis. Hyundais new language has been pared down based on concerns from their home market of Korea that the vehicles were too blatant. Its not a complete departure as elements of Fluidic Sculpture are still evident albeit with lines that are more precise and refined.



So the redesigned Sonata has now been captured out and about, guess what it applies many of the design features of the 2015 Genesis. The sloping roof line remains but you can tell through the camo that the new Sonata has much more rigid and level belt line than the outgoing. Also notice the grill has lost most if not all of its rake, but it does differ from the Genesis by not being as pronounced and snout like. Mechanicals should be identical to the outgoing but there is potential for us to see their 1.6T that debuted in the Veloster Turbo...
