    The All-New

Take every precaution.

Sonata leaps to the front of the race for a lighter, more rigid body structure by using more high-specification steel alloys than ever before. Not only is the body the stiffest ever, but it is 24kg lighter and quieter than previous generation models. That ensures Sonata meets and, in many cases, even exceeds the most stringent crash safety test standards in the world. Depowered front airbags are supplied as standard equipment but thoracic/pelvic airbags for the driver and front passenger are optional as are full-length side curtain airbags.

Sonata engine room structure and 9 air bag system
  • Multiple skeleton engine room structure

    Safety critical sub-substructures, particularly the dash crossmembers and A-pillars are made with hot-stamped steel to attain the highest possible rigidity and better withstand crash impact forces. The novel design even protects cabin occupants against the dangers of secondary impacts—the collisions that can often take place after the initial collision.

  • 9 airbag system

    Driver and front passenger are protected by depowered-type airbags that minimize the risk of injury caused by airbag deployment.
    Optional protection from side impacts is offered in the form of curtain airbags which provide head protection and thoracic/pelvic airbags that protect the driver and front seat passenger.
