New Sonata Hybrid is revealed by Hyundai in Seoul
New Sonata Hybrid is revealed by Hyundai in Seoul

The next generation Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has been uncovered in Seoul, South Korea and this latest presentation from the Korean automakers has improvements in the engine and also some minor styling refresh.

For the local market in Korea the Sonata Hybrid feeds on a 2.0 L four-cylinder gasoline engine which makes 154 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque and it is supported by a 51-hp making electric motor to complete the thrust. At this moment Hyundai is not divulging the output of the whole system and it is also not confirming whether the US buyers will get to see it in their native country. With an interview with Autoblog, Jim Trainor, Hyundai spokesperson said that the model details will be revealed only in the Detroit Auto Show when it will make its North American debut in January. Sales of the car are likely to start in the spring.

Apart from the upgraded Powerplant there will be a far more improved six-speed automatic which uses a new clutch to lessen the drag and also holds most of the hybrid parts. Some incompetency is also removed by the adaption of an electric oil pump and the battery pack has also been up-scaled in size with 1.62 from the 1.43 kilowatt hours of the previous. In spite of being the addition of capacity Hyundai says that Sonata will offer 10.5% more cargo space to owners.

Design of Sonata also gets reorganized in small way to increase fuel economy. A new mesh grille decorates the redesigned nose at the front and it is much rectilinear now. A set of exclusive tail lamps, rear diffuser and lip spoiler have been added new to match the underbody cover which is visible only to the pavement.                 

Overall the new Sonata hybrid wears a more traditional look than the gas powered version which is a surprise to buyers because Hyundai had designed the earlier generation in a futuristic style to suit the trend.
