2019 Hyundai Sonata Picture Gallery

2019 Hyundai Sonata Picture Gallery

Hyundai introduced its all-new Sonata at the 2019 New York Auto Show, marking the North American debut of the brand’s longest-standing model. The eighth-generation Sonata is unlike any of its predecessors, showcasing a bold new design. The sedan also gets an all-new 2.5 GDI engine and segment-first technologies. 

The new Sonata takes its inspiration from the Le Fil Rouge concept which was showcased at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The cascading grille is present but is now surrounded by what Hyundai calls Hidden Lighting Lamps. 

This all-new feature appears to be of a chromic material when switched off and is vividly illuminated when turned on. The headlamp design is new and there are a lot of creases on the sheet metal which add to the muscular stance of the new Sonata.

At the back, the wide LED tail lamp strip running around the tailgate looks like it has taken its cues from the Honda Civic. The four-door-coupe silhouette furthermore adds to the Civic inspiration at the rear. The sedan sits 30 mm lower than the older car and its width is extended by 25 mm. The wheelbase has grown by 35 mm, and the overall length is up by 45 mm.

The cabin is inspired by a stealth aircraft, says Hyundai. The typically Hyundai cabin has a driver-focused cockpit with expensive material finish such as leather, satin and brushed aluminium. The overall layout is very modern and upmarket. What’s more, this being a flagship sedan, it comes with all the appropriate bells and whistles and much more.

Speaking of features, you get a premium audio system, a 10.25-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system, head-up display, plenty of driving aids, highway driving assist, leather seats, LED headlights and taillights and plenty more. 

The new Sonata is the first model to utilize Hyundai's third-generation vehicle platform which offers flexibility for vehicle development across multiple segments. In terms of engine options, a 2.5 GDI and a 1.6 T-GDI engine, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, are available. The former makes 191bhp while the new G1.6 T-GDI has 180bhp.

Production of the new Sonata starts in September at Hyundai’s Alabama plant and sales begin in October 2019. Sadly, there are no plans to bring back the Sonata here in India. Nonetheless, here’s what the model looks like.
