Redesigned for Success: A Fresh Take on a Classic Sedan – 2024 Hyundai Sonata Seamless Front with a Parametric Grille
Hyundai revealed the new Sonata earlier this week. But those were studio shots, which did not reveal much detail. Now thanks to Shorts Car and Woopa TV, we have the first real world photos and detailed walkaround of the 2024 Hyundai Sonata.
2024 Hyundai Sonata Front Design Is Similar To That Of Verna
So, what can we expect from the updated Sonata? Well, for starters, it features a refreshed design with more significant changes to the front than the rear. Front end has a seamless horizontal lamp, a wide parametric grille, and headlamps with black housing.
Front reminds of the new Verna, which has now been launched in India. Rear showcases Hyundai’s new ‘H’ element tail light with a connecting light bar. A sportier boot lid spoiler, and a sharper finished rear bumper with faux exhaust ports.
