2020 Hyundai Sonata Exterior Design
Inspired by the dramatic Le Fil Rouge four-door-coupe concept shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the new-generation Hyundai Sonata has an emotional, sporty four-door coupe look with a spacious and technology-packed interior.
The exterior exhibits performance-led proportions that reference the car's step up in sportiness over that of its predecessor.
A newly designed Digital Pulse Cascading Grille spans the front of the new Hyundai Sonata, finishing at the innermost points of new combination headlamps that feature a distinctive and innovative new lighting architecture.
A chrome line flows from the wing mirror, right around the side passenger windows, and returns to the front of the car by running down the length of the hood and ending at a sharp right angle beneath each headlight.
This chrome strip features graduated LED Daytime Running Lights embedded with Hidden Lighting Lamps.
A first for a Hyundai vehicle, Hidden Lighting Lamps are a design innovation that incorporates state-of-the-art lighting technology, forming the Sonata's light architecture.
The Hidden Lighting Lamps appear to be chrome when switched off and become dramatically lit when turned on.
