Completely redesigned

The 2018 Sonata features our latest design signature, a bold “cascading grille” inspired by the flowing descent of molten steel. The more assertive front profile features newly sculpted hood lines that complement the reshaped headlights and daytime running lights that guide your way. The dynamic lines of the rear profile have also been redesigned and feature new Sonata badging and a unique hidden trunk release button within the Hyundai badge.

LED headlights with Adaptive Cornering System and High Beam Assist

The newly available LED headlights feature an Adaptive Cornering System that can steer the bright white beam to illuminate the road even as it twists and turns.

The available High Beam Assist technology provides added convenience by automatically turning high beams on or off based on oncoming traffic and lighting conditions.

LED Tail Lights

The stylish, available LED tail lights offer a unique light signature design that sets the Sonata apart and offer increased visibility day and night.

Standard Alloys

The 2018 Sonata features all-new wheel designs to complement the distinctive side profile, including standard 16” alloy wheels and available 17” or 18” alloy wheels.

Hands-free smart trunk

Enjoy the convenience of our available hands-free smart trunk technology. When the Sonata senses the key within three feet of the trunk for more than three seconds, the smart trunk will automatically unlock so you can unload your two hands worth of cargo, effortlessly.

LED side repeaters

The sleek design of the standard LED side repeaters provide added notification of your intention to turn. Side-mirrors are body colour, power-adjustable and heated to defrost quickly in cold weather.

Sport design cues

More aggressive design elements can be found on the Sonata Sport models. The 2.4 Sport features an assertive mesh grille design, 17” alloy wheels, stylish dual exhaust outlets set in a sporty rear diffuser and chrome accented side sills. The 2.0T Sport model turns the sportiness up even more with larger 18″ alloy wheels and an expansive panoramic sunroof.
