2015 Hyundai Sonata Teased Ahead Of 2014 New York Auto Show


When it debuted for the 2011 model year, the current-generation Hyundai Sonata made quite a statement with its Fluidic Sculpture styling. Hyundai can't rest on its laurels, though, so there's a new Sonata due for 2015.

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata will be unveiled at the 2014 New York Auto Show next month, but the Korean automaker has released a couple of teaser sketches.

The darkened exterior image hints at a car that's a bit less extroverted than the current Sonata. The front end sports a more formal grille, what appear to be large intakes, and more traditional headlights, most likely with LED elements.

It looks like Hyundai is trying to bring the Sonata in line with the more conservative Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language first seen on the 2015 Genesis.

The interior rendering confirms what we've seen in spy shots of prototypes, including a large center-stack screen and an angular design that should at least make the inside of the 2015 Sonata less boring than the midsize-sedan norm.

The next-generation Sonata will use the current car's platform, but there will be significant changes under the hood. Rumor has it that Hyundai will go to an all-turbocharged engine lineup, with the Veloster Turbo's 1.6-liter four-cylinder replacing the current Sonata's 2.4-liter four-cylinder base engine.

That leaves the 2.0-liter turbocharged four offered in the current Sonata 2.0T, and the hybrid powertrain, both of which will likely carry over to the new model.
