We caught our first glimpse of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata earlier this month، but at the time Hyundai only released a handful of images. Now، as the car is slowly making its way to the hands of the media and public، we're able to get a fuller look at the new Sonata’s dramatic styling.
The car boasts a fastback body style similar to that of an Audi A5 Sportback، an interior that looks upscale and، most importantly، a sedan body. The shrinking sedan segment has opened the door for Hyundai to capture customers from manufacturers giving up on cars.
From the front، Hyundai designers added a striking، massive daytime running light that blends into the chrome beltline trim. The design team also fit the new Sonata with a huge، fish-mouth-like grille that’s bound to be one of the most polarizing design choices. At the rear، the design team continued its push with creative lighting. The taillights look like a blend of Honda Civic hatchback and modern Lincoln design elements. While that might sound like the Hyundai team is borrowing ideas، it's more that everything has been done. Hyundai has put together a cohesive design that، sure، might be reminiscent of other cars.
We'll bring you driving impressions of the new Hyundai Sonata soon; in the meantime، enjoy the photos.
