2024 Hyundai Sonata
The new 2024 Hyundai Sonata is here and while the first thing you may notice is the stunning new exterior design, the redesigned midsize sedan from Hyundai has a lot more in store to offer.
What’s new on the 2024 Hyundai Sonata?
The new 2024 Sonata features a range of interior and powertrain improvements as well, making it a very appealing option for buyers looking for refinement, space, and performance in their next sedan.
The 2024 Sonata's design has been completely revamped and is certainly different from the previous model. Significantly sportier with a sleeker overall stance, the new design also enhances aerodynamics and improves efficiency. A standout feature is the Seamless Horizon Lamp, smoothly built into the car's horizontal facade. The wider concealed headlights give the Sonata a contemporary, forward-thinking look. Hyundai's design language is evident in the reimagined front grille, now paired with more pronounced air vents, enhancing the Sonata's front facade. This bold appearance is offset by the rear design, with new H-lights emphasizing the car's broad posture. The rear's appeal is accentuated by the sleek trunk and spoiler, and the distinct exhaust design, hinting at the car's powerful performance.
For those seeking an even sportier model, the Sonata N Line has the styling to match its performance. It features distinct design elements like an enlarged front bumper grille, 19-inch wheels unique to this model, and a rear spoiler. These features, combined with a dual twin-tip exhaust, reinforce the N Line's more aggressive personnality.
Color-wise, the 2024 Sonata takes inspiration from modern aircraft aesthetics. The Sonata N Line debuts the vibrant Ultimate Red Metallic this year. Other options include Abyss Black Pearl, Serenity White Pearl, Transmission Blue Pearl, and Nocturne Grey Metallic.
Inside, the Sonata showcases a 'floating' design concept, aligning with the needs of its owner along with improved mood lighting. A major highlight is the panoramic curved display, a union of a 12.3-inch driver info dashboard and a 12.3-inch multimedia system. The goal was to craft a space that's both functional and pleasing to the eye.
In the Sonata N-Line, the design emphasizes its sporty character. Red stitching contrasts beautifully against the seats, and the cross-metallic trim adds a dynamic touch. Beyond looks, the Sonata N Line offers features like Active Sound Design, Launch Control, N Powershift, and Rev Matching, ensuring an exhilarating driving journey.
For 2024, the Sonata will offer the Digital Key, enabling users to manage their car via Android and iOS devices. Music enthusiasts will enjoy the 12-speaker Bose Premium Sound System, complete with CenterPoint 360 technology. Every Sonata model is now compatible with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates, the Sonata stays up-to-date with the latest features.
Safety is paramount in the new Sonata, with features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist 1.5, Blind-spot Collision Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist. Additional aids include Rear Cross-traffic Collision-avoidance Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. Rear Occupant Alert adds another layer of safety.
2024 sees the Sonata in traditional 2.5-litre, Hybrid, and N Line versions. The notable enhancement is the HTRAC all-wheel drive for the 2.5-litre four-cylinder models.
Hyundai TRACtion AWD
Diversity marks the Sonata's powertrain options. The Hyundai TRACtion (HTRAC) AWD system, known for its exceptional traction in the most difficult conditions, now pairs with the Sonata's 2.5L engine.
The system balances torque between front and rear wheels, adapting to diverse situations and ensuring optimal traction even in deep snow or on icy roads. HTRAC uses an electro-hydraulic setup, promising faster responses and precise AWD control. For challenging terrains, the Sonata introduces a Snow drive mode.
Drivers can also customize the feel of the Sonata with additional drive modes such as Normal, Smart, Sport, and Custom, each adjusting engine, transmission, AWD, and steering to fit their preferences.
Engine variants include standard combustion engines alongside sportier N Line editions and environmentally-friendly hybrid alternatives.
