Hyundai has released the first teaser images of the 2015 Sonata, ahead of its debut later this month.
The company declined to release details but the redesigned sedan will have a larger grille which is flanked by LED-infused headlights. We can also see metallic trim, a prominent character line and attractive alloy wheels.
The upscale styling continues in the cabin as the model is nicely equipped with wood trim, gloss black accents and metallic finishes. Other highlights include a distinctive steering wheel, an infotainment system and a wide center console.
Hyundai has remained coy on technical specifications but previous reports have indicated the entry-level 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine could be replaced by a turbocharged 1.6-liter unit that produces 201 bhp (105 kW) and 264 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque.
