has introduced its all-new seventh-generation 2015 Sonata at the New York
International Auto Show. The car has a new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design
language, a stiffer body structure, better ride quality, reduced noise,
vibration and harshness and advanced safety and convenience features, according
to a company statement.
new 2015 Hyundai Sonata will be built at the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing
Alabama plant in Montgomery, Ala. In the US and go on sale early 2014 summer. Hyundai
continues its all four-cylinder engine line up for the 2015 Sonata. A revised
2.4-litre Theta II GDI four-cylinder engine powers SE, Limited and Sport
models. The 2.4-litre four-cylinder produces 185 hp and 178 lb. ft. (241 Nm) of
record’s sake, the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 is a confident evolution of the
original fluidic sculpture design language that expresses Sonata’s premium look
and value. Thus, there is a more refined grille with a wide air intake that defines
the face of the 2015 Sonata. Taut, horizontal rocker panels reflect the
chassis’ increased stability and surefootedness while the signature Sonata
beltline is now stretched tight to accentuate the sedan’s strength. The
coupe-like roofline remains, but it is balanced by a larger window graphic that
emphasises the roomier interior. Horizontal lines in the rear underscore
Sonata’s width and give the car a planted look. This purposeful shape achieves
a remarkable drag coefficient of just 0.27, lower than any non-hybrid in the
mid-size sedan class.
there is standard LED daytime running lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear lip
spoiler and chrome surround for the day light opening. Sonata Limited adds
rocker panel extensions and dual exhaust for a premium look.
Sonata Sport features a more aggressive front grille and bumper, side rocker
extensions and side chrome moulding. Sport models powered by the 2.4-litre
four-cylinder engine feature dual exhaust while Sport 2.0T models feature a
unique rear bumper fascia, quad exhaust tips and 18-inch alloy wheels. The
Sport model is expected to be the most popular Sonata.

refines his recipe over the years,” said Chris Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai
Design North America. “With the 2011 Sonata, Hyundai took the mid-size sedan
from a meal to a gourmet dinner. The evolution to Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’s more
taut, modern lines reflect the improvements in refinement and driving dynamics for
