One good contact are the dearth of parting strains on the 2 centre shows, which have Audi A7-style capacitive contact buttons. That new steering wheel has been penned to “appear like an plane yoke”.
By way of platforms and engines, the corporate hasn’t mentioned a lot. The two.4-litre atmo and a couple of.0-litre turbo-petrol engines might stay, and each hybrid and PHEV variations are nearly sure-things internationally at the very least. Presuming this one stays FWD, the Kia Stinger and Genesis G70’s longitudinal layouts would seemingly rule out something hotter within the Sonata household. Time will inform.
