The Hyundai Sonata 2024 has been seen for the first time officially and the truth is that it looks amazing. It is a pity that it is no longer sold in our country, because this deep facelift of the eighth generation would capture all eyes in its path. As you can see, the new features are palpable both on the exterior and interior.
For now, the brand has not revealed many details. Apparently, it will be fully unveiled during the Seoul Mobility Show, which will be held from March 30 to April 9. It will probably make its first appearance on U.S. soil at the New York International Auto Show on April 6. That’s when we’ll know more.
What’s New in the 2024 Hyundai Sonata
The new 2024 Hyundai Sonata follows the brand’s Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy. It takes inspiration from the second-generation Kona, incorporating a full-width LED light bar at the front. The main headlights are hidden in the top of the air intakes and joined by a wider grille, as well as sharper lines.
The redesign is complete and sportier. It incorporates a new hood with more pronounced character lines and sports a black trim at the bottom of the body. New at the rear are a revised trunk lid and a full-width LED light bar. The N Line finish adds sports bumpers, two exhaust outlets and 19-inch wheels.
No less striking is the interior. We find a digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment screen. They are located on a curved panoramic screen that protrudes from the dashboard. The gearshift has been replaced by a selector located behind the redesigned steering wheel. As would be expected, there are also new upholstery and trim.
For now we do not know the mechanical innovations. However, reports reveal a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine as standard. It puts out 290 hp and 421 Nm of peak torque in the outgoing Sonata N Line, so the figures will be similar. We have also recently seen an all-wheel drive prototype, which will be the first in Sonata history.
