Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/5/2014 Jason Udy

Hyundai has revealed the first rendering of the upcoming 2015 Sonata midsize sedan. Like the rear-drive 2015 Genesis sedan shown in Detroit in January, the new 2015 Hyundai Sonata gets the automaker’s “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0” design language.

UPDATE:Hyundai has revealed a second teaser sketch for the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, this time showing off the sedan's interior. Inside, the dash has been redesigned, incorporating elements of Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. Like the exterior, the center stack, door panels, and HVAC vents bear a resemblance to the 2015 Genesis. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata is set to debut in its home market of South Korea by the end of the month.

Higher quality materials used throughout the redesigned interior are said to reflect the exterior feel. The Sonata will also get a more intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) with a high-mounted infotainment screen to reduce driving distractions, according to the automaker.

With more high-strength steel and more structural reinforcements as well as seven airbags, Hyundai says the redesigned Sonata’s chassis can better protect occupants in a crash compared to the outgoing car. Hyundai claims a 40 percent improvement in torsional and bending stiffness.

The new Hyundai Sonata will debut in South Korea next month and will go on sale later this year.
