Hyundai continues to upgrade its large sedan with this nice looking refresh. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – March 26, 2023 2024 Hyundai Sonata The 2022/2023 Hyundai Sonata front and drivers side rear profiles are shown below for comparison. Last night, Hyundai revealed its newly refreshed 8th gen Sonata with new badging, new front end, and new interior appointments as the 8th gen sedan carries on. The 2024 Hyundai Sonata Duo The Sonata's N Line exterior highlights its sports coupe style with a long hood, low front-end and fastback roof line. Sonata’s low-slung exterior includes a new horizontal front-end layout that integrates Hyundai’s signature “Seamless Horizon Lamp”, hidden lamps, wide grille and air intake for a more modern appearance. The Seamless Horizon Lamp and wide-set, hidden headlamps create a unique lighting effect, emphasizing the vehicle’s wide stance. At the rear, the new H-lights further emphasize Sonata’s high-tech image and wide stance. The spoiler-shaped trunk lid and muffler-shaped rear garnish on the standard model reinforce the impression of a high-performance sports sedan while the addition of a rear spoiler and dual twin-tip mufflers along with exclusive 19” wheels on the N Line further amplify that image. 2024 Hyundai Sonata’s Driver Interior Layout The new Sonata implements a curved display combining driver information and the infotainment system. The 2022/2023 Hyundai Sonata Drivers Interior is shown below for comparison. The new Sonatas interior with its ever-present driver-centric layout matches its modern exterior styling. For the first time in a Hyundai model, Sonata has a panoramic curved display that combines the 12.3” driver display and 12.3” central display in a modern layout. The touch-type climate control unit applied to the instrument panel boosts the high-tech vibe albeit at the cost of tactile feel and actual knobs and switches to control various functions. The Sonata’s column-type shift-by-wire controller behind the steering wheel creates more space in the center console area. The center console palm rest provides more comfort for the driver by extending the armrest to lean up to the palm of the hand. The large size cup holder and tray provide additional convenience. Although we are not expecting anything new regarding the drivetrain, the actual refreshed 2024 Hyundai Sonata will be unveiled at the Seoul Auto Show in 3-days. Along with the updated interior and exterior, the current, heavily atkinsonized 2.0L rated at 45/51/47 mpgUS city/highway/combined rating for the std. trims – non-blue (50/54/50 mpgUS city/highway/combined, is already damn good!
