The eighth-generation Sonata makes a big statement in terms of styling. The front section is particularly eye-catching with a fully redesigned grille and a mix of high-profile lines and creases on the bumper, headlights and hood. The more modern and more spacious interior features a 12.3-inch display in the instrument cluster, a wide touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard and buttons in place of the shifter. A 180-horsepower turbo engine is mated to an eight-speed transmission.
