New Hyundai Sonata will be a little less extroverted

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 15, 2012

The upcoming Hyundai Sonata will have its “fluidic sculpture” design language redesigned and will be “a little less extroverted.” Hyundai CEO John Krafcik said that the flowing lines and expressive angles will be made subtler. “Fluidic precision” is the name of this new design philosophy, hinting that the lines will be more precise and will have more squared off lines that would be sharper.

We don’t know much yet about the powertrains but there probably won’t be any big revisions to its present lineup of four cylinder engines. A new plug-in hybrid from Hyundai is expected, and will most likely carry the Sonata badge.

It’s expected to make its debut in 2013 and is slated to start selling in the middle of 2014. This will use the current Sonata hybrid setup, with the added option of charging the batteries from an external source. The new Sonata will make its debut as a 2015 model and is likely to go on sale by the summer of 2014.
