2020 Hyundai Sonata Spotted With New Design
The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is still a little while away, but we’ve already caught sight of its new design. Spy photos reveal that the upcoming mid-size sedan will feature a major redesign, its first since 2015. The camouflaged Sonata features the brand’s new Fluidic Sculpture 3.0 design language.
Hyundai previously introduced the sixth-generation Sonata in 2011 with the Fluidic Sculpture 1.0 design language. 2015 saw the introduction of the seventh-generation Sonata, which featured Fluidic Sculpture 2.0, but the underlying platform was the same as the previous model.
The updated 2020 Sonata features new door cuts and a new grille with revised headlights. The mirrors are mounted to the body and are indicative of the mid-size sedan’s updated styling. A wider front end pushes a more intimidating look while graceful curves and a fastback stare make the eight-generation Sonata much more athletic.
The next-generation Hyundai Sonata will launch in time for the 2020 model year. Of the three existing engines, the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain is the most likely to carry over since it was most recently introduced in 2018.
Based on the camouflaged Sonata, it looks like these changes will make it to the production line. The major design updates and aggressive styling will put the Sonata a step ahead of other mid-size competitors.
