While details are scarce, Hyundai has confirmed the Sonata will be outfitted with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 2.0-liter Theta II petrol engine.

Hyundai has begun taking pre-launch orders for the new Sonata (aka the i40 in Europe) in their domestic market of Korea.

As these new leaked photos show, the 2010 Sonata adopts Hyundai's new "fluidic sculpture" design language. Boasting a "four-door coupe" appearance and a complex overly styled grille, the new Sonata will attempt to establish an even greater foothold in the automotive marketplace.

While details are scarce - the car won't be officially unveiled until September 10th - Hyundai has confirmed the Sonata will be outfitted with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 2.0-liter Theta II petrol engine. The car will also offer a variety of new features including a panoramic glass sunroof, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a push-button starting system.

Look for more details to be released in the coming days.
