The South Korean based automaker Hyundai is planning to upgrade the Sonata for the 2014 model year in order for the vehicle to become more appealing to its future customers.
The announcement has been made by the company’s United States CEO, John Krafcik, who has recently spoken to Wards Auto. According to the Hyundai official, the 2014 Sonata will get a new design language which will “work” and it make the model more appealing to its future customers, who will dream of owning a Sonata.
“I think we found a design language that works, the ‘fluidic sculpture’ stuff, so I would say [the new styling] is not pulling back in any way”, said Krafcik, who added that customers will look at the new Sonata and say “Oh yeah, that’s a Sonata. I get it. That’s cool.”
Besides adopting the new design, the 2014 Hyundai Sonata will also become more powerful and more fuel efficient and the model will also emit less CO2 every km. The hybrid version will be fitted with a revised engine, an improved battery pack and the regenerative braking system. Additional details on the 2014 Hyundai Sonata remain unknown for the moment and will be announced over the following months.
