2021 Hyundai Sonata Redesign

Ever since its release, the Hyundai Sonata has evoked mixed feelings from the automotive community. The sedan came into the scene with a beautiful version in 2010. However, in 2014, a new version was released. It was simply not as attractive as the original. However, the marque seeks to restore the Sonata’s visual appeal with a new version. This is the 2021 Hyundai Sonata. Here is what we know about it.

Exterior design

From the photos released online that depict the sedan, we can conclude that the 2021 Hyundai Sonata has a sporty, sleek exterior. Hyundai’s design staff further revealed that they desired to evoke Sensuous Sportiness in the car. Therefore, the new sedan implements sheet metal, chrome tips, minimized overhangs, LED lights and sculpted features from its front fascia to its tail.

The front fascia is especially dramatic. We predict that it will have a very slim and svelte front vent. Its radiator section is also likely to extend low towards the front lip of the car. It will also incorporate the LED headlights. Designed to have a contrasting color from the rest of the car, the radiator section will have a dramatic effect emphasizing the sportiness of the sedan.

From the pictures that we have reviewed, we can estimate that the hood is long and extends all the way until right above the headlights and radiator. Moreover, it is sculpted to have a sleek, curvy appearance that promotes aerodynamics. The car’s side profile reveals a coupe body style.

We predict that the 2021 Hyundai Sonata has emphasized greatly on its aerodynamics. The photos floating around online about the car reveal that its rear view mirrors are thin and angular. In addition to that, our estimations indicate that it has minimalist A and B-pillars. In addition to that, the C-pillar is incorporated into the sedan’s rear wing. This creates a beautiful, coupe stance.

We estimate that the new sedan will ride on 20-inch wheels. They are mounted on 5-spoke, honey-mesh rims. According to statements from the Hyundai design team, we can conclude that the rims are designed to enhance the car’s aerodynamics.

Interior design

From the pictures that we’ve seen depicting the 2021 Hyundai Sonata, the marque is revealing their futuristic design language. Thus, the interior is expected to be just as beautiful, minimalist and breathtaking as the exterior. Judging from the photos that we’ve seen, we can confidently conclude that the interior of the new sedan balances luxury and minimalism.

We can predict that the steering wheel will have a single spoke. It will run across the flat bottomed steering wheel and evoke a sense of minimalism and high technology. Behind the wheel is a large panel made up of two 12 inch LCD touchscreen panels fused together. This facility provides the driver and the vehicle occupants with ample data about the car’s speed, mileage, fuel levels, engine temperature, power distribution and rev count. These details are presented digitally. The panels also provide infotainment for the vehicle’s occupants.

We hope that the new sedan will seat a total of 5 passengers. The sedan will most likely have island seats. Each of these can have two-tone upholstery in colors such as white and tan. For a luxurious touch, we predict that the dashboard will be paneled with wood veneer. Moreover, its acceleration and brake pedals are highly likely to be made of stainless steel.

An interesting feature of this sedan is that its rear doors open backward. This is akin to the highly popular “suicide door” setup. Luxury features such as a full-scale glass sky roof are expected to be standard in this sedan.

Engine and specs – 2021 Hyundai Sonata

From all available indications, the new 2021 Hyundai Sonata is most likely going to be powered by two types of powerplants. We predict that they will be a Hybrid and a Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) engines. Both powerplants will have a capacity of 2.0 liters. Also, we estimate that they will produce more than 210 horsepower apiece. Seeing as the marque is keeping up with the latest technologies, we expect that it will use solid-state batteries. They will speed up charging time and also provide a longer range on a full charge.

Release date, Price and Availability

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata is most likely going to grace showrooms in 2021. It will also retail at approximately $25,000 for the base trim. Its premium trim will have a higher retail cost.
