Following its Korean debut a few months ago, the new-look 2015 Hyundai Sonata is now celebrating its world premiere at the New York Auto Show. The car is naturally enhanced in every conceivable aspect, but the biggest improvement of all is the new exterior design, inspired by Fluidic Sculpture 2.0.

That is Hyundai’s new design language which aims to make cars that look more mature and sophisticated. The resemblance between the new Sonata and the 2015 Genesis is therefore not a coincident.

2015 Hyundai Sonata features a more prominent grille and unique headlights that give it the brand’s current corporate look, while swapping most of the old model’s curves for subtle and sober straight lines. The coupe-like roofline remains, but it is balanced by a larger window graphic that emphasizes the roomier interior.

Speaking of the interior, this too is inspired by the Genesis, and features now higher quality materials, and, this being a Korean car, even more equipment than before. The NVH levels are also dramatically improved in the new model.

The more aggressive design of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is backed up by more powerful engines, including a 2.4-liter (185 horsepower and 178 lb. ft. ) and a 2.0 liter Turbo (245 horsepower and 260 lb. ft.) four-cylinder. The latter is distinguished by a unique rear bumper fascia, quad exhaust tips and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The new Sonata is also fitted with the latest safety features, including Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and a Lane Departure Warning System. As for the connectivity systems, you get an 8.0-inch navigation system with downloadable apps, smartphone, USB, and iPod integration, and satellite radio. Hyundai’s Blue Link system also includes Siri Eyes Free system.
