With the 2024 Hyundai Sonata, Hyundai showcases a number of modifications that illustrate its progressive stance towards midsize cars.

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.
Sonata's exterior has been redesigned for 2024, displaying a sleeker, more agile silhouette than its predecessors. Aerodynamic features emphasize more than just visual appeal, prioritizing efficiency as well. A standout addition at the front is the Continuous Horizon Lamp, smoothly integrated into the vehicle's linear structure. Alongside this, the enlarged concealed headlights give the Sonata a contemporary, almost futuristic look. The revamped front grille, augmented by broader air inlets, provides the Sonata with an assertive visual signature. This bold facade is harmonized with the rear of the new midsize sedan, where the innovative H-lights emphasize the car's broad posture. Enhancing the back's persona is the dark, spoiler-style trunk lid and a distinct exhaust design, subtly alluding to the car's enhanced power.
The Sonata N Line variant accentuates these dynamic nuances even more. It highlights exclusive elements such as a broadened front grille, 19-inch wheels unique to this model, and an aerodynamic rear spoiler. These features, along with the double exhaust, elevate the Sonata's inherent sporty character.
Multiple new color options will be available. In particular, the Sonata N Line debuts with the eye-catching Ultimate Red Metallic. The Canadian palette also includes shades like Abyss Black Pearl, Serenity White Pearl, Transmission Blue Pearl, and Nocturne Grey Metallic.
Inside, the Sonata embraces a floating design concept. Modern touches that resonate with today's lifestyles are emphasized, further enriched by mood lighting. A standout component is the expansive curved screen, fusing a 12.3-inch dashboard display with a 12.3-inch multimedia navigation interface. The focus is on crafting an environment that marries functionality with visual appeal.
In the Sonata N-Line variant, the interior mirrors its sporty spirit. The contrasting red stitches elevate the upholstery's look, and the metal-cross patterned finish heightens its vibrant charm. Beyond the visuals, the Sonata N Line offers drivers unique functionalities, including Active Sound Design, Launch Control, N Powershift, and Rev Matching, all contributing to a thrilling and intuitive drive.
The Sonata 2024 edition launches the Digital Key, granting users the ability to secure, access, and ignite the car using Android and iOS devices. For audio enthusiasts, the 12-speaker Bose Premium Sound System, now featuring the new CenterPoint 360 technology, is a treat. Every Sonata model is now compatible with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To ensure the Sonata remains at the forefront of technology, Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates keep the car updated without trips to the dealership.
In terms of safety, the Sonata offers an array of driver-assistance technologies, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist 1.5, Blind-spot Collision Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist. Additional features include Rear Cross-traffic Collision-avoidance Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. An extra layer of protection is offered by the Rear Occupant Alert, ensuring no one is inadvertently left behind in the car.
2024 sees the Sonata in traditional 2.5-litre, Hybrid, and N Line versions. The notable enhancement is the HTRAC all-wheel drive for the 2.5-litre four-cylinder models.
Hyundai TRACtion AWD
Hyundai has expanded the powertrain choices for the Sonata. The most impressive improvement is the introduction of the Hyundai TRACtion (HTRAC) AWD system, renowned for its adaptability, now available with the 2.5L engine variant. This feature aims to fine-tune torque balance between the front and back wheels, adjusting to different terrains and driving scenarios. HTRAC uses an advanced electro-hydraulic setup, promising prompt reactions and enhanced control even in the most difficult conditions.
To ensure safety during unpredictable weather, the Sonata introduces a Snow mode, reassuring drivers in diverse landscapes.
Moreover, personalized driving modes – Normal, Smart, Sport, and Custom – allow drivers to customize settings encompassing the engine, gearbox, AWD (when activated), and steering to match individual driving styles.
Engine variants include a conventional combustion engine, the sporty N Line edition, and an eco-friendly hybrid option.
