TOKYO – Hyundai is giving the Sonata sedan a modern facelift with a radical horizontal light bar across the front hood lip, a sporty new low-slung grille and a panoramic digital display.
Hyundai calls the new front lighting motif the Seamless Horizon Lamp. Preview photos show a striking front identity created by the illuminated line stretching across the front fascia.
The new look mirrors that deployed in the redesigned Kona electric vehicle, which will be shown at next month's New York auto show. The updated Sonata will debut at the Seoul Mobility Show that starts March 30 and is not expected to be on display in New York.
A Hyundai spokeswoman in Seoul said U.S. introduction plans are still under consideration.
