Hyundai Sonata Getting an Aggressive Redesign and a Turbo Model


It appears the Hyundai Sonata is getting an aggressive facelift.

The Korean automaker posted two teaser images on its Facebook page in the form of sketches, giving us a hint about how the facelifted Sonata will look. Considering the new Sonata was introduced as a 2015 model, a refresh is likely around the corner. It appears Hyundai will make the popular sedan even sportier with the addition of a Turbo model, while the front and rear ends will get restyled to match.

Up front, the new Sonata’s large hexagonal grille follows the design of other new Hyundai vehicles like the Accent and Elantra GT. Engine choices for the facelifted Sonata will likely include the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 178 horsepower, the 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with 245 hp and the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 hp.

Look for the updated Hyundai Sonata to make its debut later this year.
