2024 Hyundai Sonata
A range of modifications have been made to the Hyundai Sonata for the 2024 model year, demonstrating Hyundai's innovative approach in the midsize sedan segment. With a number of distinctive features, the Sonata has captured the attention of many consumers, from its transformative design to its enhanced capabilities.
What’s new on the 2024 Hyundai Sonata?
The new 2024 Sonata features a range of interior and powertrain improvements as well, making it a very appealing option for buyers looking for refinement, space, and performance in their next sedan.
Compared to its predecessors, the exterior of the 2024 Sonata is more aerodynamic and athletic. An important aspect of this transformation is its advanced aerodynamic design, which combines beauty with performance. A standout element on its façade is the Continuous Horizon Lamp, meticulously incorporated into the car's linear design. Coupled with broader concealed headlights, it bestows the Sonata with an avant-garde, almost next-gen look. With its revamped front grille and big air vents, the car has a dominating front end. This confident demeanor finds harmony with the rear's design, marked by new H-lights that accentuate its broad presence. Additionally, the back features a jet-black spoiler-like trunk and a distinct exhaust design, hinting at the Sonata's performance.
Sporty is unmistakably pronounced in the Sonata N Line. It has an enlarged bumper grille, exclusive 19-inch rims, and an aerodynamic rear spoiler. In addition to these details, a double twin-tip exhaust emphasizes the sporty nature of this Sonata variant.
In the colour domain, the 2024 Sonata echoes shades inspired by state-of-the-art aviation designs. Notably, the Sonata N Line debuts the vivid Ultimate Red Metallic hue this year. Furthermore, there are a number of shades that are tailored for the Canadian market, including Abyss Black Pearl, Pristine White Pearl, Gearshift Blue Pearl, and Twilight Grey Metallic.
Internally, the Sonata embraces a floating design philosophy. This encompasses contemporary accents that resonate with modern-day living, further enhanced by mood lighting. A centerpiece of the cabin is the wide curved screen, merging a 12.3-inch dashboard display with a 12.3-inch multimedia and navigation interface. The aim has been to craft an interior that blends functionality with sheer elegance.
The Sonata N-Line's interior design bolsters its sporty character. Scarlet-accented stitches create a striking contrast against the seating material, while the metallic cross-pattern trim intensifies its dynamic allure. Besides aesthetics, the Sonata N Line offers drivers with distinct features, such as Active Sound Design, Launch Control, N Powershift, and Rev Matching, promising a thrilling yet precise driving journey.
The 2024 Sonata rolls out the Digital Key, permitting drivers to manage locking, unlocking, and ignition via Android and iOS devices or wearable tech. Music enthusiasts will value the 12-speaker Bose Elite Audio System, packed with the latest CenterPoint 360 tech. All Sonata variants come equipped with Cordless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To keep pace with tech advancements, periodic Over-the-Air (OTA) software upgrades ensure the Sonata remains updated, eliminating the need for service center appointments.
Emphasizing driver safety, the Sonata comes packed with an array of driver aid features, including Front Crash Prevention Assist 1.5, Blind Zone Collision Alert, and Lane Maintenance Assist. Further support systems comprise Rear Crossway Collision Prevention Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Start & Stop functionality. An additional safeguard, the Rear Passenger Alert, ensures no individual is inadvertently left behind in the car.
The revamped Sonata is back in 2024 with its engine, Hybrid, and N Line editions. The most pivotal update, though, is the incorporation of the HTRAC all-wheel-drive in variants powered by the 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine.
Hyundai TRACtion AWD
Notable mechanical changes are found on the 2024 Sonata. HTRAC, the Hyundai TRACtion AWD system renowned for its ability to adapt to a wide range of weather conditions is now a part of the Sonata lineup, teamed with the 2.5L engine. The advanced all-wheel drive system seeks to fine-tune torque allocation between the fore and aft wheels, responding to variable terrains and driving dynamics. The HTRAC system operates on an electro-hydraulic model, assuring rapid reactions and enhanced control.
To bolster confidence during harsh weather drives, a Snow driving mode has been integrated.
Moreover, drivers can tailor their journey with a range of driving modes - Normal, Smart, Sport, and Custom - that tweak parameters spanning the engine, transmission, AWD setup (when fitted), and steering settings to align with individual driving styles.
Power choices range from a conventional combustion 2.5-litre motor, the zestful N Line model, to an eco-friendly hybrid alternative.
