Hyundai’s popular mid-size sedan is about to evolve into something that will bring new design, and better than ever before craftsmanship.
The all-new 2014 Hyundai Sonata represents for Hyundai a practical applications of premium Hyundai Motor technologies that were first introduced in the all-new Genesis that had its world premiere back in November 2013.
Modern class-leading advanced features will be the headline for the all-new Sonata, and an extension of their Fluidic Sculpture philosophy that has brought some great design including the Hyundai Veloster.
When Hyundai first arrived in Australia, premium just didn’t exist in your vocabulary, however now there’s a sleek exterior and much better and intuitive interior design. All of which that works in harmony. Well in photos at this moment.
Hyundai wants the all-new Sonata to be a world-class premium mid-size sedan by pushing their innovation in fundamental areas. This has meant that the suspension performance and structural rigidity over the previous model has resulted in a 41% greater torsional strength and 35% greater bending strength.
Length and width has increased by 35mm and 30mm respectively, giving some noticeable interior volume improvements.
Safety wise, there is Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Advanced Smart Cruise Control. There is also some nice little luxuries being included in the all-new Sonata such as rear parking sensors, heated leather seats, rear-side curtain airbags and some new multimedia systems too.
Whilst the specifications for our locally tuned all-new Sonata is to be confirmed, you can expect more power, and better fuel economy.
Production is expected to start in the second half of 2014, and you can be sure to have us update you on pricing when it is available. We do expect however, that the pricing will start around $29,990. Just below it’s slightly smaller i40 sibling.
