At the 2023 Guangzhou Motor Show, Beijing Hyundai officially unveiled the 11th generation Sonata. As a replacement model, the appearance and interior of the new Sonata have undergone significant changes, and the regular version and N Line version are available for consumers to choose from. It is understood that the new car will start pre-sale in January 2024 and go on sale in March 2024.

In terms of appearance, the eleventh generation Sonata adopts a new design language, making the overall shape younger and more scientific and technological. Specifically, the front face of the new car uses a large trapezoidal intake grille, and the front grille and the front bumper form an integrated design effect, resulting in a higher degree of recognition. The headlamp group adopts a split design, the upper daylight adopts a penetrating LED light source, with a large trapezoidal air inlet below, and the front grille and front bumper are integrated into an integrated design. It is understood that. The new Sonata will be available for consumers to choose from in both the regular version and the N Line, which is mainly blackened for details to make it look more sporty.

On the side of the body, the new Sonata uses a sedan body, the roof is pressed down from the front row, and the outline of the body is not much different from that of the current model. In the rear part, Hyundai car is redesigned for the rear, with a new shape of the through-type taillight group, and the bumper also adopts a new styling style with a prominent sense of visual hierarchy. In addition, the N Line version uses a bilateral four-way exhaust layout, which is more sporty. In terms of size, the length, width and height of the new car are 4945/1860/1445mm and the wheelbase is 2875mm.

In terms of interior decoration, the new Sonata uses an integrated screen design composed of a 12.3-inch dashboard and a 12.3-inch central control screen, together with a new style of three-spoke multi-function direction, making the car look very textured. At the same time, the car also uses a brand-new shift mechanism, equipped with head-up display, 12-speaker Bose Premium sound system and other configurations.

In terms of power, according to the declaration information, the eleventh generation Sonata will provide 1.5T and 2.0T engines. Among them, the 1.5T engine has a maximum power of 170hp (125kW) and a peak torque of 253Nm, matching the 7DCT double clutch transmission. The 2.0T engine is equipped with a 8AT gearbox with a maximum power of 240hp (176.5 kW) and a peak torque of 353Nm.

Sonata is a medium-sized car owned by Hyundai Motor of South Korea, which competes with Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Nissan Teana, Volkswagen Passat and other models, but its sales in the domestic market are very poor. It is understood that the 10th generation Sonata on sale in China, which went on sale in July 2020, will be updated in less than three years, which runs counter to the rhythm of traditional automobile products. As early as 2021, domestic media reported that the 10th generation Sonata will not have a medium-term upgrade, but is planned to be replaced directly in 2023, and the direct replacement is due to poor market sales. Hyundai decided to advance the replacement time of Sonata in order to solve the problem. Retail sales figures show that only 5138 vehicles were sold in 2022, compared with 2587 from January to October 2023.

Hyundai significantly advanced the Sonata replacement time, whether the move can reverse the decline, which is also unknown. As a new replacement model, the 11th generation Sonata has a younger and more sporty appearance, which is more in line with the aesthetics of current consumers, but the power combination choice of 1.5T engine + 7DCT double clutch gearbox and 2.0T engine + 8AT gearbox is still lack of innovation. As Sonata's strong competitors, Accord, Camry and Passat in the joint venture brand have been replaced or are about to be replaced. Sonata's living space will be further squeezed. In the future, it will not be easy for Sonata to achieve good results in the domestic market.
