Hyundai Motor has revealed the first teaser images of the face lifted Sonata ahead of its launch in Korea, set for early next month. Details below:


  • The face lifted model underwent a “Dramatic Design Change” to bring it in line with the new Hyundai look, progressively introducing sophisticated architecture and styling
  • The new design architecture centres on Hyundai’s brand new signature, the “Cascading Grille”
  • The Cascading Grille symbolises the momentous flow of molten steel and the elegant shape of the Korean celadon vase, bringing a more distinct identifier to the Hyundai range.
  • Around this Cascading grille is a sensuously sculpted fascia with a much more confident gaze and a purposeful stance
  • The low and wide radiator grille makes the hood appear longer and sleeker, which is counter balanced by the raised trunk lid, shifting the side profile architecture to a more dynamic attitude
  • The chrome lines around the DLO extends forward to the headlights as they did before, but now they extend to the front, and under the headlamps for a unique, sophisticated look
  • From the side, the sleek and sensuously sculpted volumes are complimented by fine technical details such as the head lamps, tail lamps and directional spoked wheels
  • The rear license plate holder was moved downward to fit onto the bumper and a large Sonata logo is added to the centre of the trunk lid, projecting visual self-confidence
