The company Hyundai has released the first design sketches of a restyled Sonata sedan. The pictures appeared on the official website of the automaker in one of the social networks.
It is expected that the novelty will debut next month. First the 2018 Hyundai Sonata will be presented in South Korea. Then at the Motor Show in New York, held in April, the world sedan’s premiere will take place.
Currently we have only sketches. The facelifted Hyundai Sonata is shown here next to previous versions. So today we can say that a body front end, rear lights and a bumper underwent restyling. The main innovation here is a radiator grille, made in the modern style of the brand.
There is no information about possible changes in the powertrain, however, the updated Sonata with probably retain the previous engines. Depending on the market, today they offer atmospheric petrol (2.0 and 2.4 liter) and turbocharged engines (1.6 and 2.0 liters), as well as a 1.7-liter diesel motor.
It is possible that the 2.0-liter petrol 4-cylinder engine wiil be replaced by the new 2.0 T-GDI motor, which the hot hatchback i30 N was equipped with. It will enter the market in the second half of 2017. While this is only a supposition of experts. Any official information about the replacement is still absent.
