Official Teaser Image Of The New 2015 Sonata Sedan Released
The all-new Sonata will be officially unveiled in Korea later this month, but Hyundai have given consumers a little taste of what to expect by releasing some details, as well as an official exterior rendering.
The 2015 Sonata will land in major markets later this year.
The Sonata has already achieved almost 7 million units sold worldwide, and the new version is expected to further that success by delivering some revolutionary design elements.
Hyundai pulled everything together by shooting for quality in every single detail of the car, with the result being a vehicle that goes well beyond anything the customer might expect.
The all-new 2015 Sonata delivers on a number of different levels, but Hyundai Motor admit that their main focus was to make the fundamentals exceptional first.
That meant paying real attention to the overall performance and safety of the car.
2015 Sonata Incorporates Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 Design Language
This will be the second Hyundai model to incorporate the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language.
The first in the line-up to get the new design treatment was the all-new Genesis, which customers got a look at for the first time late last year.
The spirit of the original design is maintained in Fluidic Sculpture 2.0, but it has been further defined by embracing simplicity and harmony across all the elements.
It’s a modern look highlighted by a singular hexagonal grille, rich color, pleasant design, and elegant finishing touches throughout.
There is also a sporty style that cannot be denied, thanks in large part to the dynamic line that runs from the hood to the trunk. There is a spacious interior in place now that the car comes with a longer wheelbase.
Interior Layout Has Yet To Be Revealed
The beauty of the exterior flows into the cabin, where consistent design details are in place to deliver an ergonomic, intuitive space that the driver and passengers will love.
A feeling of stability is delivered via the horizontally designed cabin.
The feeling of quality and craftsmanship is apparent in every detail, with innovative design and elegant materials used throughout the cabin space.
Superb Safety, High Tech Safety Technology
The safety of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is once again top class, with an improved body structure and rigidity, as well as new advanced safety features, making it a star in crash tests.
The safety and driving performance of the Sonata gets a boost because of the use of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), which is twice as rigid as traditional steel, yet still manages to be about 10% lighter.
51% of the platform on the all-new Sonata is made of AHSS as compared to the outgoing model which only used 21%.
A large portion of the steel is used in components that are in place to protect passengers, helping to take safety to all new levels across the board.
A structure adhesive has been used within the car frame to add even more strength, with the ends result being 10 times stronger than the previous model.
Hot stamping components have been tripled over the previous model, while the addition of a double section on the B-pillar adds an extra level of safety in crash tests.
The addition of a 7-airbag system and new seatbelt technologies helps take the all-new Sonata to the top-class in safety ratings.
