Hyundai has quietly introduced its 2010 new Sonata sedan in Korea and will ship the model overseas beginning 2011, while most of the automotive world was focused on the Frankfurt Motor Show. The 2010 new Hyundai Sonata mid-size sedan carries Hyundai’s new “fluidic sculpture” design theme, with upgraded performance, safety features and fuel-efficiency. Incorporating state-of-the-art technologies, the new Sonata will further elevate the Hyundai brand.

Although it is a completely new vehicle, Hyundai is retaining the Sonata name as the mid-size car has been Korea’s most popular sedan. Applying a new design aesthetic of “fluidic sculpture,” the 2010 Hyundai Sonata pursues a younger and sensuous image in its interior and exterior profiles. Inspired by nature, the “fluidic sculpture” tries to reflect sophistication and dynamism in the shape of the vehicle and will serve as the core of Hyundai’s future design identity.

The exterior design of the new Sonata exudes a voluminous look that creates character through the refined and harmonized lines. The interior has a dynamic look that matches the exterior while not compromising comfort or convenience. The 2010 Sonata is available in nine exterior colors, from Remington Red to Blue Black to Espresso, satisfying the diverse tastes of younger customers.

Inside, the revolutionary design theme continues as Hyundai crafted a much more luxurious interior for the new Sonata. The Korean-market car features a two-tone dash with a sweeping center console. The navigation unit is new as well and looks similar to Nissan’s navigation unit, while the HVAC controls are similar to those found in Volvos.

Powering the new Hyundai Sonata in the U.S. will be a new 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. A 2.0-liter I-4 (standard in other markets) makes 162 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. The engines are mated to six-speed automatic and manual transmissions. Fuel economy and power ratings are not yet available for the U.S.-spec 2.4-liter engine. We also expect a V-6 engine to remain an option in the U.S.

To meet the most stringent automotive safety and crash requirements, the Sonata is built with hot-stamped ultra high-strength steel while featuring six standard airbags. In addition, safety has been upgraded with standard Vehicle Dynamic Control including Hill-start Assist Control and Brake Assist System functions-an industry first in this competitive segment.

The new Hyundai Sonata 2010 comes with a three-piece panoramic sunroof, giving a sense of openness and freedom as well as a stylish look. The Parking Guide System (PGS) allows drivers to avoid obstacles during parallel parking or when driving in reverse. The Dimension premium sound system offers high-quality sound in three types of modes to satisfy customers’ wide-ranging musical tastes.

The Mozen system, a telematics service that debuted in 2003 in Korea, has evolved to become more sophisticated, offering more diverse and upgraded multi-media and IT functions. The newly applied Mozen Premium Wide Navigation system provides drivers with a faster communication service through the third-generation WCDMA wireless network. For two years, it also offers free safety services such as an SOS and anti-theft tracking service. The audio-visual functions have been upgraded with the 8-inch wide screen and JBL Premium Sound system.

In the new Sonata sedan, Hyundai offers a wireless vehicle monitoring service-another industry first– through the Mozen Auto-care service, linking the vehicle’s electronic control systems to a monitoring center. The center checks various components for errors, informs the driver of the analysis, and provides directions to nearby service centers, saving time for drivers.

Hyundai plans to sell 60,000 units of the new Sonata in Korea this year. Overseas, Hyundai will start production of the new Sonata at its Alabama plant early next year, while production and sales in China will start in early 2011. Hence, Hyundai expects to sell 450,000 units annually in all markets (Korea & overseas combined) beginning from the year 2010. Pricing for the 2010 new Sonata starts at 21.3 million Won to 25.95 million Won ($17,600 to $21,450 USD).
