But today the company unveiled the global version of the new sedan in Korea. Final U.S. specs, trim levels and prices will have to wait, but for now we can tell that the car gets a new, more angular look versus the curvy lines of the current car.

It also resembles the redesigned Genesis large sedan that will go on sale soon.

We'll have more on the new Sonata during our New York Auto Show coverage April 16 and 17.

The greenhouse has been pretty much carried over including the continuation of the chrome strip between the fender and hood. It's certainly attractive and a more mature design but doesn't stand out like the previous generation. From what I've seen of the interior I think it's not nearly as sporty looking.


I'm sure they've made improvements, but as for the styling, it's "back to boring."


Hopefully they fixed the steering issues which forced the car to veer left. Mine did and after six attempts to fix the problem failed I lemon lawed it and bought an Accord.

This looks too much like the new Chrysler 200.
