Hyundai Sonata 2015 images teased

Hyundai Sonata 2015 images teased

Hyundai teased the images of its upcoming sixth generation Sonata ahead of its unveiling in South Korea this month. The all-new Sonata (codenamed LF) features Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design language.The design looks fresh and apart from the sweeping roofline, carries minimal resemblance to its predecessor. 

The images are limited to the exteriors and we would have liked an image of the inside too. At first glance it seems like the mandate was to make the car more upmarket and more sedate rather than radical and futuristic. This theme might be carried over to the interiors as well. The company has said, "Its interior design aligns with the premium exterior, adopting consistent design details that fully reflect careful consideration of ergonomics and intuitive operation. The horizontally designed cabin gives off a stable feeling, and tailored design specifications for all materials and master craftsmanship-level finish strengthen the Sonata’s premium image."

The Korean car maker also claims they have worked hard on the car’s safety attributes, the car uses 51 per cent of Advanced-High Strength Steel and the use of structure adhesives has gone up 10 times. The new car’s torsional and bending stiffness is 40 per cent more than the current car as a result of these developments.

In India, we got the fourth-generation Sonata in 2001; the car became a rage in the D-segment which had cars like the Honda Accord and Ford Mondeo. It even managed to beat its closest rival the Honda Accord in sales numbers. However, the successors to the fourth generation Sonata did not quite replicate the initial models success which Hyundai would want to change. 

The all-new Sonata will be revealed this month in Korea and there isn’t much information pertaining to its launch. Although, we can expect the car to be launched here within six to eight months from its global unveiling.
