    “Through more than a simple facelift, the new Sonata revolutionizes the old Sonata’s image, launched in 2019, and is reborn as a dynamic, progressive new model with low-slung, elegant proportions, more aggressive styling, and future-oriented technology. The new Sonata presents a fresh take on the four-door coupe that captures the essence of Hyundai Motor’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy,” Hyundai wrote in a press release.

    With a sporty body style as a backdrop, Hyundai slapped retro-modern appointments to the new Sonata’s exterior. These come in the form of the brand’s Seamless Horizon Lamp, hidden headlamps, wide grille, and air intake.

    To its rear is a swooping spoiler-shaped trunk lid and muffler-shaped rear garnish.

    A high-performance N Line variant will be released, which will get a rear spoiler, dual exhaust pipes, and exclusive 19-inch wheels.

    Inside, the new Hyundai Sonata flaunts a driver-centric cockpit highlighted by a panoramic curved display that combines both a 12.3-inch driver information cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment system.
