The 2024 Hyundai Sonata has rolled out, and beyond its impressive new external appearance, it's evident that Hyundai has poured thought into every aspect of this midsize sedan.

What’s new on the 2024 Hyundai Sonata?
The new 2024 Sonata features a range of interior and powertrain improvements as well, making it a very appealing option for buyers looking for refinement, space, and performance in their next sedan.
Hyundai has given the 2024 Sonata a transformative facelift, setting it apart from its predecessor. The design, now more athletic and with a streamlined profile, not only exudes style but also elevates aerodynamic efficiency. The integrated Horizon Lamp, merged effortlessly into the horizontal front, is a remarkable addition. Broader concealed headlamps lend the Sonata a futuristic yet elegant appearance. The iconic Hyundai design signature can be seen in the newly-conceptualized front grille, flanked by bold air inlets, magnifying the vehicle's frontal charisma. The rear gets an equally dramatic treatment with innovative H-lights, underlining its wide stance, accompanied by an elegant trunk, spoiler, and a distinct exhaust layout that speaks of its performance prowess.
For enthusiasts seeking an added touch of sportiness, the Sonata N Line doesn't disappoint. It boasts features like an expanded front bumper grille, exclusive 19-inch wheels, and a rear spoiler, and together with its dual twin-tip exhaust, it projects a more assertive demeanor.
When it comes to its color palette, the 2024 Sonata is inspired by contemporary aviation design. The N Line introduces the striking Ultimate Red Metallic this season, alongside other shades like the deep Abyss Black Pearl, pristine Serenity White Pearl, vibrant Transmission Blue Pearl, and the subdued Nocturne Grey Metallic.
Stepping inside, the Sonata embraces a 'floating' design ethos, catering to the driver's preferences and also boasting enhanced ambient lighting. A key feature is its immersive curved screen, which combines a 12.3-inch driver-centric dashboard with a 12.3-inch multimedia interface, creating an environment that is as efficient as it is aesthetically pleasing.
The Sonata N-Line's interior underlines its athletic essence. The contrasting red stitches against the seats and the metallic cross-trim offer an energetic flair. But it's not all about the visuals; the N Line is equipped with amenities like Active Sound Design, Launch Control, N Powershift, and Rev Matching, promising a driving experience that's truly riveting.
With the Digital Key in 2024, the Sonata will be able to be controlled via Android and iOS devices. Featuring 12-speakers and CenterPoint 360 technology, the Bose Premium Sound System is sure to please music enthusiasts. Every Sonata model is now compatible with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. OTA (Over-the-Air) software updates ensure that the Sonata stays up-to-date with the latest features and software updates.
Safety is paramount in the new Sonata, with features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist 1.5, Blind-spot Collision Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist. As part of the additional safety features, there are also Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. Another feature that adds to the safety of the vehicle is the Rear Occupant Alert.
Sonata will be available in traditional 2.5-litre, hybrid, and N Line configurations in 2024. In the case of the 2.5-litre four-cylinder model, the most notable improvement is the addition of the HTRAC all-wheel drive system.
Hyundai TRACtion AWD
Variety is at the heart of the Sonata's powertrain offerings. The renowned Hyundai TRACtion (HTRAC) AWD technology, recognized for delivering unparalleled grip in challenging terrains, is now integrated with the Sonata's 2.5L motor. This system evenly distributes power between the front and back wheels, adjusting to varied conditions, guaranteeing supreme grip, be it on snow-laden streets or icy patches.
Employing an electro-hydraulic mechanism, HTRAC ensures prompt and precise reactions. There is a Snow drive mode on the Sonata for challenging terrains.
Additional drive modes such as Normal, Smart, Sport, and Custom allow drivers to customize the feel of the Sonata by adjusting the engine, transmission, AWD, and steering.
There are three types of engines available, a standard 2.5-litre internal combustion engine, the sportier N Line variant, and a hybrid electric motor.
