2018 Hyundai Sonata appears during testing for the first time

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata has been caught on test for the first time. The car was undergoing testing in the Mojave Desert. This new model is expected to come out in the US sometime next year.    

Not much is known in terms of internal upgrades; however, what’s certain is that the 2018 model will be headlined by the addition of an 8-speed automatic gearbox to mainstream variants. The 8-speed unit is likely to give substantial improvements to performance and efficiency. 

It is no secret that the previously upgraded Sonata received an underwhelming response and as a result lagged behind its rivals in the mid-size sedan segment. With the 2018 model, Hyundai is looking to give the Sonata a thorough refresh next year in order to spark new interest in the car. Going by the look of recent Hyundai models, the 2018 car will infuse some much needed personality to the Sonata's lineup by taking design cues from more expensive models like the Azera.
