In addition to the two brand-new models joining the Hyundai lineup for the new model year, the brand’s flagship sedan is getting completely redesigned as it enters a new generation – its eighth overall since being introduced back in 1985! The all-new 2020 Hyundai Sonata is sleeker and more sophisticated than ever before, and with its release date of October fast approaching, we thought we’d cover some of its new features and design cues for you here today!
“Sonata is our signature product. Having been one of our first and most successful nameplates, Sonata is our legacy, and it needs to be special and memorable in all attributes. Sonata signifies our vision for future Hyundai designs, great active safety systems and cutting-edge technology that is effortless.”
– Mike O’Brien, Vice President of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America
What’s new in the 2020 Sonata?
With the Sonata getting completely redesigned, there are too many new specs & features to cover in just one blog, so we’re just going to highlight some of the most exciting! For starters, the Sonata is the first vehicle to utilize the new Digital Key technology developed by Hyundai. This new technology allows drivers to unlock, turn on the engine and even drive their vehicle without a physical key, as long as the car is connected to your smartphone.
Another Hyundai-first feature is the hidden lighting lamps on the front end of the vehicle. These lights turn chrome when turned off, completely disappearing into the design of the vehicle, but remain lit when turned on. Hyundai and Bose have embarked on a new collaboration and the first fruit of their joint labor is found in the 2020 Sonata. A brand-new Bose Premium sound system that features 12 speakers and a host of Bose technologies.
These are just a few of the exciting new features found in the new Hyundai Sonata. Feel free to give us a call to find out even more about what’s new!
