The recipient of a mid-cycle refresh for 2024, the eighth-generation Sonata now boasts a futuristic-looking front fascia with a full-width LED light bar. The base 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine can be paired with all-wheel drive for the first time. Next up is the Sonata N Line featuring a turbocharged 2.5-litre engine. A hybrid variant will not be available in Canada, sadly. Inside the cabin, dual 12.3-inch displays for the instruments and infotainment system are combined under a single, curved interface.
