Star Quality

The perfect mid-size sedan for business or leisure. The sleek shape of the Sonata reflects an image that’s both sporty and refined. If beauty is more than skin deep, then the Sonata is not just a pretty face. Hyundai’s distinctive sweeping curves are set off by the unique lamp graphics and the electric-folding side mirrors with LED indicator lights.


True Comfort
