2015 Hyundai Sonata in Winnipeg, Manitoba
The future is here. And once again, it's shaping up nicely. Each generation of the Hyundai Sonata has made a statement of premium comfort and driving confidence in the mid-sized sedan segment. The modern lines of the 2015 Sonata reveal the same unprecedented combination of style, safety and ergonomic features that garnered worldwide acclaim when a reimagined Sonata launched four years ago. Now, as before, its exterior design displays a new level of polish and sophistication. Inside, the cabin is intuitively redesigned - with more technology and safety features throughout the lineup than ever before. Simply put, the all-new Sonata is a proud reply to the question, "What will Hyundai think of next?"
Exterior: The Evolution of Sophistication
Engineered with dynamic proportions in perfect balance, the all-new 2015 Sonata has been redesigned with a highly sophisticated profile. Fluidic Sculpture 2.0, the evolution of the Hyundai design language, takes classic proportions infused with modern lines to evoke emotion and captivate attention. The distinctive lines of the Sonata melt into a commanding front grille with hexagonal winged-tipped design, framed by swept back headlights and LED daytime running lights. The overall visual impression is a sense of evolved sophistication that blends sportiness with elegance in equal measure.
Interior: A Study in Comfort
By studying the improvement of human machine interfaces (HMI), Hyundai has completely redesigned the interior of the all-new Sonata to deliver a driver-oriented cabin intuitively laid out for optimal ergonomics, comfort, and convenience. Consider the re-envisioned T-shaped centre-stack layout that improves visibility (slightly tilted towards the driver), or standard features like the Bluetooth® Hands-free phone system and 5" colour touch-screen with rearview camera. With more available amenities than ever before, you'll appreciate the difference ventilated seats make on a hot day, the convenience of smart trunk technology when your hands are full, or the added ease of the Adaptive Cruise Control system on long journeys.
The 2015 Sonata is equipped with a fine-tuned steering system tweaked for exceptionally smooth responsiveness that keeps you aligned and in control. Under the hood the highly efficient 2.4L GDI and 2.0L Turbo engines provide powerful, brisk acceleration that devours roads while going easy on fuel. Both engine feature CVVT technology that makes the engine more efficient at all speeds and outputs an impressive 183 and 242 horsepower respectively.
The powerful 2.4L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) 4-cylinder engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission balances performance and fuel economy with 190 horsepower (192 horsepower for SE model) and 7.3L/100km^ combined fuel economy. Step up to the 2.0L Turbocharged GDI engine with an impressive 274 horsepower and 8.4L/100km^ combined fuel economy - offering performance
