For this year’s New York Auto Show, Hyundai decided to bring it’s 2018 iteration of the Sonata with very minimal changes – with the exception of its front fascia.
If you hadn’t noticed, the Sonata’s front end now comes with a much bigger mesh grille. However, some folks have voiced out on forum threads that this larger grille doesn’t help the Sonata in the looks department.
Aside that, Hyundai supplanted its previous six-speed tranny for a new eight-speed automatic unit mated to a turbocharged four-cylindermill.
Although the automaker didn’t bring on much changes, it did refine the chassis of the vehicle to enhance its ride and handling. Hyundai also claims that the re-calibrated steering will be more responsive.
Based on what was seen during the New York Auto Show, it’s obvious that the sedan received some minor design refresh which included LED daytime running lights, available adaptive LED headlights, a sharper tail light design, chrome accents along with some new wheel designs.
Well, do you think the 2018 Hyundai Sonata is still capable of impressing buyers with its bare minimum refresh?
