2015 Hyundai Sonata
http://www.carscoops.com/2014/04/2015-hyundai-sonata-comes-of-age-in-new.html
The design resembles the swoopy outgoing Sonata, but drops some of the curves to gain more hard edges and lines, both inside and out (did you notice the flat-bottom steering wheel?).

"With the 2011 Sonata, Hyundai took the mid-size sedan from a meal to a gourmet dinner," said Chris Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai Design North America. "The evolution to Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’s more taut, modern lines reflect the improvements in refinement and driving dynamics for 2015."

Hyundai didn't release measurements for the North American model, but don’t expect any differences from the Korean-spec version that is 1.38 inches (35mm ) longer and 1.18 inches (30mm) wider than the Sonata Mk6 at 191.1 inches (4,855mm) long, 73.4 inches (1,865mm) wide and 58.1 inches (1,475mm) tall, with a 110.4 inches (2,805mm) wheelbase.

The styling might be new and the chassis improved (41 percent stiffer torsional rigidity and 35 percent greater bending strength) with Hyundai stating that it fine-tuned the car at the famed Nürburgring (imagine that…) among other locations, but the exclusively four-cylinder engine range remains.

For the U.S., there's a revised 2.4-liter Theta II GDI delivering 185 horsepower and 178 lb. ft. of torque, and an updated 2.0-liter Theta II turbocharged GDI producing 245 horsepower and 260 lb. ft. of torque, both matched to six-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission. A hybrid model will join the lineup later on.

We caught up with Hyundai head of Design Peter Schreyer at an exclusive event the night before the NY Auto Show. The 2015 Hyundai Sonata shows all the signs of the next generation Hyundai Fluidic Sculpture Design 2.0 and is sure to be as big of a hit as all the Sonatas that came before. Being a bulk seller for the Korean automaker Hyundai is betting big on the 2015 Sonata and from the first look, Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys beware! Check back for more information over the next few days from our further look from the floor of the NY Auto Show.

Great design is instrumental in creating unforgettable experiences. So we crafted every detail of the all-new Hyundai Sonata to perform together beautifully like a well-orchestrated symphony.
