The 2015 Hyundai Sonata will make its official debut in Korea later this month before debuting in major markets later this year. The all-new sedan will be the Korean automaker’s second model to adapt “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0,” that features a more complete and refined premium look. The new Genesis sedan, which debuted last November, was the first vehicle to feature the revamped design language. According to Hyundai, the design keyword for the 2015 Sonata is “Inner Force” which reflects the Sonata “reborn with an evolved aesthetic force that stems from purpose and sophistication.”
Expect the 2015 Hyundai Sonata to pack all new technologies designed to enhance Human Machine Interface (HMI) qualities, which lets drivers intuitively recognize their vehicle’s controls to make them more convenient and effective. In addition, the new Sonata’s platform consists of 51 percent Advanced-High Strength Steel (AHSS), which is twice as rigid than regular steel while being 10 percent lighter. The previous Sonata was only 21-percent AHSS.

“Since the first Sonata was introduced in 1985, Hyundai Motor’s symbolic midsize sedan has contributed hugely to the company’s rapid growth and brand enhancement,” said Jeong Gil Park, head of the Hyundai Motor Group’s Engineering Design Division. “The all-new Sonata has evolved again, based on Hyundai Motor’s world-class technologies, and it will play an important role in further facilitating our shift from quantitative growth to qualitative growth.”
