Hyundai Sonata takes another step forward for 2018 with refresh

The Hyundai Sonata has earned a great reputation in the midsize sedan segment. Larger than the Hyundai Accent and Azera, the Sonata has achieved great success despite strong competition in its class. For the 2018 model year, the Sonata will take another step forward with a refresh that is expected to offer a new transmission, an updated look, and some great new interior features.

2018 Hyundai Sonata Release Date

While Hyundai hasn’t announced the exact date of the 2018 Hyundai Sonata’s release, we know it is expected to reach our Colorado dealership this summer. If you’re in the market for a Sonata, we have plenty of 2017 and pre-owned models in stock. We also encourage anyone interested in the 2018 model to give us a call or contact us through our website to get more information on its arrival at Schomp Hyundai.

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata’s new look

Although this is a refresh and not a complete redesign, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata will get a number of exterior refinements to help it stand out from previous versions. The new cascading grille is the first thing you’ll notice, but other touches like narrower tail lights, a lower profile, new wheel designs, and available LED headlights all to add to the overall aesthetic.

Mechanical changes for the 2018 Hyundai Sonata

One of the biggest changes you’ll find with the 2018 Hyundai Sonata near Denver, CO is the new eight-speed automatic transmission. That transmission will receive power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of 245 horsepower. With a 12 percent increase in torsion bar stiffness, the new model will feature more responsive steering as well.

New interior tech in the 2018 Hyundai Sonata

If you’re into technology, this is going to be a great car for you. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, you’ll have exceptional connectivity options. Also, you won’t have to worry about cords to keep your phone charged with the Qi wireless charging pad.

We can’t wait for summer to see the 2018 Hyundai Sonata in our Denver showroom. If you’re interested in being one of the first to test drive this refreshed model when it arrives, contact us today!
