Photo of 2018 Hyundai Sonata’s Fresh Face Leaks

3

A sole image of the Hyundai Sonata facelift has leaked ahead of its debut.

Earlier this week, the Korean automaker posted a few sketches teasing the facelifted Sonata, showing off a more aggressive design and a turbo model. Now, Hyundai Blog has gotten its hand on an image showing off that facelift that is quite dramatic compared to more traditional refreshes. The front end is noticeably more aggressive, giving it a sportier appearance. It also incorporates Hyundai’s cascading signature grille and new front headlights.

Although there’s no leaked image of the rear, the sketches preview a new set of LED tail lights, an updated bumper and new exhaust finishers. The facelifted Hyundai Sonata is expected to bow early next month in Korea and should introduce two new trim levels, a standard model and an even sportier Turbo model.

    I actually think it looks pretty good.

    I do too… One thing though is that it has a slight resemblance to the Ford Fusion…

    so, where is the front bumper? expensive to make, easy to damage and non repairable. expensive to replace. looks techy but has no design class. Asia designs are short on practicality.
